Sample Graduation Script

Preparation, organization and collaboration are the keys for a successful event.  Based from the gathered data, I made an outline to guide the host for a smooth flow of the program.

Take note of the following:

  • There should always be program guidelines and script to be used in any events for a clear transition;
  • There should be appropriate adjectives prepared in introducing the speakers.

For the speakers & hosts:

  • Establish eye contact with the audience as often as possible;
  • Voice should be well modulated (not squeaky, low or loud);
  • Be optimistic and smile from the heart. =)

May this script be helpful enough.

Prelude & Processional Music

    It helped me. But why is that there is no presentation of graduates before distributing of diplomas? If I’m not mistaken, I guess there should be a part where in the principal or guest of honor should confirm how many students will be graduated. Isn’t it? Thank you!
