Congratulations Seiritsu Gakuen Class of 2014!
Seiritsu's high school graduation ceremony for the class of 2014 was held on March 2. Three years of hard work, friendship, study, laughter and tears all culminated to the final joint event of the school.
This year's graduates have been particularly close knit, and the ceremony was considerably more emotional than usual.
After the graduating classes filed into the hall, the class representatives were issued their class diplomas, songs were sung, the principal Fukuda kocho sensei issued a speech, as did the former and present student council president.
Certain students also received certificates of recognition for their achievements during their time at Seiritsu. International student En Muan is receiving his certificate in recognition of reaching the national representatives for basketball.
After the ceremony, graduating students went back to their home rooms for one last goodbye and to receive their individual diplomas.
Outside, the school clubs and associations gathered to say goodbye to their graduating senpai, with many a photo taken and gift exchanged.
In the karate club we said goodbye to our seven senior club members.
Everyone, congratulations on your graduation, thank you for the memories, and good luck for your future adventures.
