The graduation ceremony commenced with a beautiful procession by the final year students on the attraction lane. As they were proceeding, there was a range of expressions on their faces. As some were smiling radiantly, others dabbing their eyes with their handkerchiefs as tears were trailing down their cheeks. There was a little dance twist to the procession which made it lovely. It was easily seen that they were having fun, singing the words of a popular departure song in Wesley girls ‘’One more step along the world you go”.
Parents, guardians and family members were eagerly peering into the procession to see if they could catch a glimpse of their ward on this special day and capture the image in their hearts forever.
Form masters and Mistresses of the various final year classes also processed behind them in their academic gowns. Class by class, they were called and their certificates were handed over to them, with a few words from their form masters or form mistresses. Some classes were described as “world changers and nation builders “others as “the masterminds behind the success of the future”. It was quite an emotional and happy time with words from them.
It was quite a short ceremony ending with a few words of wisdom from the Headmistress Mrs. Betty Djokoto. Afterwards girls were seen looking for their parents and friends to say their last goodbyes, the saddest part of the ceremony as many girls were seen crying and grieving the departure from friends probably.
Parents were seen looking so happy for their wards and taking pictures. A sweet little boy handed his sister a bouquet of roses and daises. The day ended on a bitter sweet note. The expressions on the faces of the graduands could only read ‘Ebenezer-thus far the Lord has brought us’.
