My daughter is graduating tomorrow from preschool.
There was a parent-teacher meeting a few weeks back to decide whether parents still want to have a moving up ceremony for the preschool kids. Ever since the K12, there were no graduation rites required. According to the teachers, they need to get the consensus of the parents on having a Moving Up celebration of the students.
Well, everyone said yes to the idea of having a ceremony ... except for me. I didn't see the point of having a ceremony for the kids since the transition of preschool to grade school didn't seem a big deal for me. It was just another one of those we have to spend on.
But I couldn't do anything about it since most of the parents said yes.
However, during their rehearsal, I found it's importance. It's about getting nearer to our goal of giving Via an education that she needs for her future survival. And yes, it was worth celebrating. Good thing parents like me were outnumbered or else, Via have to put off the chance to go up the stage and be recognised for the work the she has done the past school years.
