Parade Day and Graduation with a Linky

It was Samantha's Parade Day and High School Graduation last Friday. Parade Day is a unique tradition at her high school for the Grade 12's. The photos above are of her with her best friends. (She's on the left in the first pic and on the right in the second.) She still has final exams to write, but she's finished with her schooling. High School in South Africa begins in Grade 8, so she's been there for the past 4 years of her life. Both guys and girls shed tears in the school hall at the final ceremony as a big part of their lives comes to an end.

No one received a certificate of graduation, because the final exams are only just underway. The students will collect their diplomas from the school office in the new year. University will also start in the new year, so that's why some things are a bit back to front. Samantha's already been provisionally accepted at Stellenbosch University and has been allocated a room in a res that she will share with another girl.
