As the door opened I could see the smiling faces of parents, grandparents, friends, and the teachers. Tonight was the year graduation!
Going back to the start, the night started with us going to a restaurant to eat our dinner. And as I talked to my friends I couldn’t help feeling nervous, like I was the only person in the world. Then I thought back to the practices we did for the dance and I shuddered thinking that my family would laugh at me. I’m sure everyone in the room felt like that too.
Soon It was time to walk in and sit down to the crowd of smiling faces and applause. It was crucial from then on not to make any mistakes. But as the door opened I realized it didn’t matter.
Suddenly we were being handed our certificate in a dazzle of handshakes waves and flash photography. At one point when I got mine I didn’t know if I should leave the stage or not. But luckily in the end everything worked out.
Then a girl called grace read out her valedictory speech which I also wanted to read out to everyone. My speech was read out to everyone in year five and six a few weeks ago. I didn’t get as many laughs as other people but I thought it was good. As I though about this wile listening to her speech I finally decided that the teachers made the right decision on choosing her speech.
Then it was time for the specialist rewards. every time they would read out the reward I though to myself ” oh I hope I get one”. over and over again. And then when they read out the buddies award they said my name which was another best part about graduation.
After all the awards had been done I remembered the dance. I remembered all the smiling faces watching me. And I remembered the embarrassment I would have! Then I herd those words from the school captain jack, “and now could all the year sixes go outside for the final farewell”. I wanted to explode and as I lined up I almost did.
1,2,3, “clap” 4,5,6, “clap” the dance was amazing! everyone got it right and I couldn’t see any mistakes. even the partner dancing wasen’t bad! and after we made a circle and did our favourite bow I could see my family, and I was happy…
When I finally got home tired and looked at all the photos of me and my friends I opened my certificates my parents said they were proud of me! And saw not only the past, but the future. My graduation was fantastic!
