Sixth Grade "Graduation"

Today our group of twenty-five sixth graders celebrated the completion of their years in our tutoring program. Next year these boys and girls will begin secondary school and hopefully also join our youth group.

Many of these students started their educational journey in our kindergarten and have come to the tutoring program twice a week during all their primary school years. 

To celebrate this milestone event in their lives we invited them and their parents and siblings to celebrate Eucharist with the community. At the end of Mass the sixth grade tutor, Julia, shared a few words of wisdom with them. Then each mother presented her son or daughter with a special gift from the tutors and walked out with her child. 

The "graduates" were the honored guests at a meal they shared with their families.

Below are some photos of this day's event.
