Golden Harvest International School held a drive-thru promotion ceremony followed by a motorcade for 19 promoting students from different grade levels.

Initially, there was no plan to host a promotion ceremony in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, said GHIS principal Jennifer P. Reyel said. “However, we saw our students’ hard work even during the online classes, so we thought of going through with it to show that we appreciate their efforts,” she added.

The promotion ceremony was held by drive-thru at the Minatchom Atdao pavilion and concluded in a motorcade. The school rented 19 Mustang convertibles for the students’ motorcade from the pavilion to American Memorial Park and then to GHIS in Oleai.

“We followed all safety precautions. We put markers to make sure that we followed social distancing protocols. We had a hand sanitizer station as well and used infrared thermometer to check on our students and their families’ temperature,” she said.

Reyel said they plan to resume face-to-face classes for the upcoming school year. “Since we have low enrollment in the next school year, we will be able to do in-person classes with a social distancing setup,” she said.
The following were the awards given out during GHIS’ drive-thru graduation ceremony.
