Students gather on Minecraft for digital graduation

Japanese schools have been closed for about two weeks now due to government action in an attempt to quarantine people from further spread of the coronavirus, and the schools will remain closed until April.

However, the Japanese school year ends in March and begins again in April, so for many students, this period of closure results in missing their graduation ceremonies. Whether leaving elementary, middle or high school, graduation is an important time during one’s school career, so it’s sad for some to know that they won’t get to walk.

But schools closing and canceled events doesn’t stop the Japanese from celebrating one of the most important times of their lives. Coming up with a brilliant way to make up for the fact that they couldn’t have a graduation ceremony at school, some creative elementary school graduates decided to go digital and met in Minecraft.

“We all decided to have a graduation ceremony together!” a tweet by @backyennew read. “Oh? Awesome. The elementary students gathered to start graduation themselves.”

The students met in Minecraft and designed the assembly hall together and spent all day online together playing games and enjoying a fun time with one another.

Isn’t this such a creative and refreshing thing to see amid all the unsettling news?
