Honored guests, parents, Mr. Dioscoro G. Gil Jr., faculty and staff of Alimodian National Comprehensive High School, members of the Graduating Class, friends, ladies and gentleman, good afternoon.
Welcome to the 52nd Commencement Exercises of Alimodian National Comprehensive High School.
Today, we come together to witness the most memorable event in our high school life, the long cherished dream – our Graduation. This is the end of four long years of struggles and sacrifices but the new beginning of another rocky road of educational journey.
As we proceed to another difficult task ahead of us, we feel a mixed feeling of joy, excitement, fears and anxieties. But we do hope that our four long years stay in this institution will arm us against difficulties and obstacles that await us.
Today, we are here to receive the fruit of our sacrifice. We are here to reap laurels – the prize of our hard work. But all of these are impossible without those who have supported and guided us.
Fellow Graduates, let this moment, be a time of praising and thanksgiving. Above all, let this be the very moment to thank Him our Almighty Father, for the blessings He has given us. I personally owe him for what I am today. “Thank You, Dear God.”
Let us also be grateful to our dear parents, who gave us love, support and guidance. The patience you’ve given us, awaken our minds to feel a deep feeling of guilt in every wrong deed we have made. We know, you’ve done your best to make us better individuals. I am grateful for this privilege to thank personally my parents. You have sacrificed so much for me; for such, I offer you my success today. Without you, maybe life would be meaningless for me. Thank you very much for your never ending support. You are always behind me in whatever hardships and shortcomings in our family. What I’ve experienced will inspire me as I move on to the challenging roads of college life.
I also extend my gratitude to our dear teachers for their patience, their untiring efforts in helping us learn and become better citizens of tomorrow. I owe you the knowledge and great foundation to battle the different challenges I’ll encounter in the future. To you, I am forever grateful. Maybe your names would be forgotten but your precious guidance will stay forever in our hearts.
Fellow Graduates, we are happy for the achievement we’ve gained, but a moment from now, we have to say goodbye. We have to start another phase of education. As we proceed, let us be thankful to our dear ALMA MATER, the Alimodian National Comprehensive High School, which has truly equipped us with knowledge and moral values. These will lead us in our search for other fields of endeavor. Thank you dear ANCHS, wherever we are, whatever we may become, we promise that we always uphold your name and reap more laurels in the future. We leave you with heads up high for we have a great foundation to support the blocks piled on our shoulders. We are now strong to carry them and survive the walls that may hinder our paths along our journey. With God’s grace, we will trudge the yellow brick road and follow the end of the rainbow because surely the pot of gold awaits us there.
To all of you who share your precious time with us today, Thank you and Welcome to our Day of Celebration!
