The Ugandan school year runs on the calendar year, so school 'speech day' was held in December. Speech day is where each class sings a song or does a dance or something. The main event is K5 graduation. All the parents come, especially if their kids are graduating. It is a big deal to graduate from K5 and parents come from all over to watch their kids graduate. I was not able to be there for the whole thing since I was in school, but I was so glad to be there for the graduation part. Eight GSF kids graduated - three of our girls were the top three in the class! My mom shared some of their stories here.
