Six-year-old school children making speeches at their graduation ceremony. Near Santiago City in the Philippines, March 2007.
These ceremonies must be a real ordeal for such young children. This one lasted well over two hours with the children only receiving their awards right at the end. The rest of the time was taken up with political speeches (it was election time) and a few presentations (singing and dancing) by some of the children. See the set (and below) for more pictures from just one ceremony I attended in March 2007.
