The closing program, which coincided with the kindergarten graduation exercise of the school, was held on Sunday, July 3, 2016. The Kindergarten Section had eight (8) kids. Six of them passed and two failed; however, only four (4) of them participated in the graduation ceremony because of financial reasons.
