First the graduates filed into the auditorium.

The choir sang and there were some speeches.


A few more speeches.


Then it was Nora's row's turn to file up to receive their diplomas. Tassels on the right.



Nora (from the back) receiving her diploma. We should receive a photo of this taken by a professional photographer with a much better angle.


Filing back to their seats after receiving their diploma - tassels now on the left.


Nora with her diploma in hand.

See a newspaper story (with photographs by a professional) about Nora's graduation here. It includes a photo of them all throwing their hats in the air. (I missed that moment while fiddling with my camera.)
