Accompanied by their proud parents, siblings, aunts and uncles the mood of the day was a clear Jubilation!
With such amazement and awe parents and guestsbeamed with pride,gazed at the successful graduatesascendingthe stage with their regalia of honour. The academic procession itself was one of the highlights of the day, having all the splendor and majesty that is properly associated with such a happy occasion as this.
