The show must go on for Class of 2020
In under 24 hours, the class of 2020 found an ingenious way to celebrate prom just before lockdown.
Mr Abramson and students on alternative prom day
As Covid-19 has forced much of the world to shelter in place and isolate from all areas of their lives, rites of passage like graduation and the prom have been put on hold indefinitely.
Determined not to miss out on the memories, our class of 2020 students took it upon themselves to organise an alternative prom in less than 24 hours. They rightly anticipated that the doors of KCLMS would abruptly close and that school would transition to online learning for an indeterminate period of time.
So, on the very last day of school before lockdown, our class of 2020 single-mindedly staged a party. Dressed to the nines, they boogied to Kingsley’s ghetto blaster and had the time of their lives. They were intent on celebrating the end of a chapter and setting the beginning of a new one with hope, positivity and gusto.
Strength, resilience and tenacity are so very fitting for the KCLMS class of 2020. Although times may be rough and we may not know when this pandemic will end, we can wholeheartedly say that we finished this chapter of our lives stronger than ever.
Class of 2020: thank you for your enduring enthusiasm, grace and optmism. Congratulations, best of luck, and please know that we are cheering you on. You got this!
