My niece just graduated from kinder II and I was teasing her that she already has masterral degree at kinder because it's her 2nd time to graduate. My sister told me that kids grasuate in Kinder I as well as in Kinder II. I thought are these graduations some kind of money making schemes of school officials? What's the significance of graduating twice in kinder? Can anyone enlighten me?

Hi mamalev, good day to you my co-mylotter. Well me, i only graduated in an kinder at onces for the reason here in our school in elememetary, there is no senior and junior kinder, which is the reason why, there is a two times graduation in kinder. But there is one good advantage if you were graduated from two kinder, the advatange of it is the student have the right knowledge to think and she/he have a superior mind for moving up to Grade one. But it also depend to the student because what if he/she did not study well from that two consecutived kinder stage? May be the student will have a low I.Q. than a kinder who graduate at ones. Here in our country there is a saying that "Ang kabataan ang pag asa ng bayan" by :DR.J0SE RIZAL, but the problem now here in our country is many student didn't study well, and i think if they will not study well, in the feature our country will still down that my causes for our economy rate will also decrease. I am hoping that thing will not happen from the feature and i hoping that the government must have a program to manage the education to be prioritize by the youth. But if the government are still numb, may be it is time to think for this coming election that we must vote the right person who must elect or vote to the right position to the government. Well that's all my opinion here in this forum topic discussion entitled "Why are there two graduations in kinder?". I hope i give a simple good opinion in my response. Happy posting and happy earning. . . Good luck to our career here in this site mylot. Mabuhay! ! !

Yes, there's graduation for Kinder 1 and another for Kinder 2. I don't know if the schools realized it yet that this is overkill but I hope many will raise this concerns on PTA meetings. What's the use of having two graduations for Kinder? And if you go to a kid school and a nursery school, that will be a total of 4 graduations before entering grade school. I don't think it's all about money making. It's just that no one is making fuss over this. I really hope that schools will just make one graduation for all preparatory grades to cut the schooling miscellaneous costs.

Thanks for responding eichs. I'll see to it that when my son gets to go to school that I would try to be the PTA president then put an end to 2 graduations in kinder (lol). Kidding aside, it's a lot money wasted on 2 graduations when you can use that money on a project for the school or something.

Hi, when I was a kid I graduate twice also. but one in nursery and the other one in kinder. and when you do enroll in preparatory you will have another graduation. My kid now graduated nursery last Mar 18. I plan to enroll him to just one kinder level. in his school there is also two kinder, but the other kinder are for kids who didnt studied as nursery and the other one is for those who studied nursery. take care

hi thanks for responding red. So it should be nursery then kinder ok but I still don't see why there should be 2 graduations in kinder level. My kid's turning 3 this summer and I just want to know so I'd be prepared.
