Due to the social gap rules, 179 high school students in the Philippines cannot attend graduation ceremonies. However, each one still receives a diploma in an unprecedented ceremony.
The community stirring ceremony was held at Senator Renato “Compañero” Cayetano Memorial High School of Science and Technology in Taguig City.
Four robots created by a group of students from recycled materials have been dressed in graduation attire.
The tablet with student portraits will be the heads of the robots and be replaced individually when their names are called.
The teachers wear masks and keep a safe distance throughout the event.
The same robot-assisted ceremonies will also take place at 36 schools in the city, awarding diplomas to more than 17,000 other students.
“We know what graduation ceremonies mean to students and their parents. That’s why we organized this program so that children and parents feel fully compliant with government regulations, ”said Principal Lino Cayetano.
Taguig is one of the satellite cities of Manila, which has been frozen since mid-May. There have been 378 cases of corona infection with 15 deaths as of May 21.
