I got in the car with my Grandpa, it was hot and we did not want to walk up the hill to the Moonee Valley Racecourse. “I feel privledged taking you to your Graduation Dinner” my Grandpa had said, I had replyed “It is only up the road”.
I walked through the door into the air conditioned building and sat down next to and near my friends. I had arrived before at least half the people and once everyone had arrived the food came and we all enjoyed a meal of either Lassange, Spaggetti, Fish & Chips or Chicken Parma and they were all served with chips and salad. After we had ate dinner, dessert came out. After all of the food we walked down to our school, Moonee Ponds Primary where we waited for the time we were to come in.
As we walked in I felt vulnerable, there was at least 100 eyes staring at me. I felt as if I was a hare being watched by an eagle. When I was walking up to go get my Graduation certificate I felt like I was going in slow motion. To make matters worse my dad had his Iphone with him to take pictures and I didn’t know when he had finished taking the photos because there was no flash (Embarrasing!).
As the night wore on, the time crept along until it was time for our suprize item. We walked out and then we walked back in (in our lines). The parents were suprized at our dance and some were laughing. I felt the uneasyness in my stomuch and tried to carm it down. Once the dance started I seemed to relax and forget about the people around me and settled down.
Overal I enjoyed Graduation and sad that primary school is coming to and end 🙁
