Graduation ceremony went well, though long. Slightly over two and a half hours of listening to speechs and individual introductions of children and their awards or other comments, such as "could be a good team member" and "sometimes contributed to class" - lol - and teachers bravely continuting to talk on and on even though they were starting to cry.
Beautiful niece played in wind trio introduction music and another little bit and experienced a wardrobe malfunction (shoe broke) with beautiful comic timing.
Kids were very dressed up. One little girl out the front chatting to other niece awed at her own dress costing a whole $90. I think much of that was surprise that her parents willingly bought it for her.
Niece decided against the gold beaded glovish things.
