Jovan performed today at the Graduation Concert for the K2s.. As he’s not one of the main stars of the concert, he was only involved in one item and the finale.. The concert involved only the K1 and K2 pupils from 3 branches of the ccc so we saw many items by children from the other 2 centres too..
The event started later than planned mainly cos it’s a rainy day.. we had to send him to the venue at 12.30pm for the teachers to get them ready.. since it was raining rather heavily and we couldn’t find any parking… I dropped him off with his teachers before the 3 of us went to AMK Hub for lunch.. Gave him a hot dog bun in addition to the snacks the teachers had prepared…
It was only drizzling slightly when we returned to the venue and we were thankful that we managed to get a parking space..
We got in on the dot but there was some delay..
While waiting, we read the short synopsis of the items..
After some waiting, the concert finally commenced.. 3 valedictorians, 1 from each centre, took turns to give a speech to show their appreciation to their parents and teachers..
I got a little emotional when I heard them as they showed how ready they would be for the next chapter of their lives.. At 6 years old, these children could memorise their speeches really well!
It was interesting to watch the K2 graduands collecting their certificates too! They all look so cute, especially when they bowed with confidence and held their certs with pride! I’ve a feeling I’ll cry when it’s Jovan’s turn…
After the presentation of certs to the graduands, some children took turns to introduce the various items in the concert. I’m very impressed with many of them who could speak very well and confidently.
Finally, it’s Jovan’s turn to perform! We were discouraged from taking videos and photos as there’s a professional photographer as well as videographer but who cares, right? Hee.. here’s my boy! He’s a bear! Hee..
He remembered all his moves but he seemed to be a little slower than his friends but he’s adorable! Hee.. so proud of him!
I quite enjoyed the performances by the other children but I think I would enjoy it more if it was not a combined concert as each child had very little ‘air-time’.. so I was very glad to see my boy on stage for the finale.. Also, it’s actually a good thing that my boy is not very tall as he had to stand right in front to be seen! Hee.. yeah! More unblocked air-time for him!
Since we couldn’t take very close-up photos of him during the concert, we had to do so after the concert.. hee..
Oh my, he really is short! Haha..
We also ordered some photos taken during his full dress rehearsal..
Well, 1 more year to go and he’ll graduate from the ccc… hmmm.. it’ll be an exciting year ahead!
