(1) For School Year (SY) 2017-2018, the Department of Education (DepEd) announces the conduct of the following End of School Year Rites:

  • Kindergarten: Moving Up or Completion Ceremony
  • Grade 6: Graduation Ceremony
  • Grade 10: Moving Up or Completion Ceremony
  • Grade 12: Graduation Ceremony

(2) The 2018 ceremonies shall focus on the theme: Mag-aaral ng K to 12: Handa sa Hamon ng Buhay (K to 12 Learners: Ready to Face Life’s Challenges). Schools, divisions, or regions may translate the theme in Mother Tongue. This theme highlights the role of K to 12 Basic Education Program in harnessing the skills and competencies of the Filipino learners to face life’s challenges.

(3) As announced in Enclosure No. 1 of DepEd Order (DO) No. 25, s. 2017 entitled School Calendar for School Year 2017-2018, the end of school year rites should be scheduled not earlier than April 2, 2018 but not later than April 6, 2018.

(4) All Grade 12 learners are required to take the Basic Education Exit Assessment (BEEA) which will be conducted before April 6, 2018. Details of the examination will be issued on a separate memorandum.

(5) In line with the government’s austerity program, DepEd reiterates the following policies:

  • Graduation rites should be simple but meaningful which encourage civil rights, a sense of community, and personal responsibility. While these rites mark a milestone in the life of the learners, these should be conducted without excessive spending, extravagant attire, or extraordinary venue;
  • Moving Up or Closing Ceremonies should be simple involving only the learners, their parents and the school; and,
  • Non-academic projects such as attendance to field trips, film showing, junior-senior promenade, and other school events should not be imposed as requirements for graduation or completion…
