The Cauayan East Central School in Isabela is gaining attention online for their creative and innovative way of showing their support to their graduates.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing protocols and prohibition of mass gathering have been strictly imposed all across the country. Parents and even graduates know how disheartening it is that they will not be able to walk on stage to receive their diploma.

The Cauayan East Central School decided to still give their graduates a ceremony. Although quite an unusual one, the school decided to conduct a mobile graduation ceremony. Using an improvised stage at the back of a truck, the school officials visited their students’ houses to distribute their awards and certificates. Like the usual graduation ceremony, the learners climb on the stage to receive their diplomas while they practice social distancing and wear their face masks.

Another netizen said, “Kahit simple at least may moment ang mga graduates na umakyat ng stage.”

However, there are also those who shared their concern that it may put others at risk for possible COVID-19 infection.
