Graduation Day had arrived and we first met up at the school where the diplomas were handed out. There were also a great supporting features with music and especially a sketch, which was really, really funny, about how and which of the teachers to choose, as the new school rector, as this was to be his last year. This all took a couple of hours with awards being given to outstanding students at the end. Then the student gave all the main teachers pictures printed on canvas, which we had taken. The remaining teachers also got normal framed photos. All of these photos were given to the students on a CD.
Then we all had to get to the "Alte Stadthalle" in Melle where the ball and party was to take place. There had been no fixed place for me to set up a booth as there was a tent outside and I decided to sit down at the entrance to the bar in the main hall and get the pictures as they all came by, teachers as well. As they all had to pass me at one time or the other they all came, some a lot later than I thought and I finished up just after two in the morning. The students of course carried on through the night. A great party to end a fantastic experience for us all!
