|Grade 6 Graduating Pupils of CES SY 2011-2012|
In line with this order, the Schools Division Superintendent of La Carlota City, Juliet A. Jeruta has issued a statement of her graduation message. A part of it says that she's inviting all the graduates of the 24 elementary public schools to share what they've learned from their basic education, especially the "right attitude for nation building."
Well, in my school, Cubay Elementary School, I've thirty-four Grade 6 pupils who are so excited to have their closing exercises on the afternoon of March 28. They've manifested mixed feelings of excitement, joy and sadness.
Miss Jema Bajala, their English CES teacher, has required them to write a short composition of their feelings or reactions on their forthcoming graduation.
Some of their write-ups of mixed emotions were selected and have been posted here. Here are their works:
