A farewell to Class 11's on Prize Distribution Day. I collect my certificate and walk down the stairs from the stage. I am wearing my school uniform and I go where my class-mates are standing in a neat group on wooden steps. Our Music Teacher begins to play the piano as we clear our throats to sing for the leaving batch:

As you go through life you'll see
There is so much that we
Don't understand

And the only thing we know
Is things don't always go
The way we planned

But you'll see everyday
That we'll never turn away
When it seems all your dreams come undone

We will stand by your side
Filled with hope and filled with pride
We are more than we are
We are One

If there's so much I must be
Can I still just be me
The way I am?

Can I trust in my own heart
Or am I just one part
Of some big plan?

Even those who are gone
Are with us as we go on
Your journey has only begun

Tears of pain, Tears of joy
One thing nothing can destroy
Is our Pride, deep inside
We are One

We are One, You and I
We are like the Earth and Sky
One family under the Sun

All the wisdom to Lead
All the Courage that you need
You will find when you see
We are One

You will find when you see... We... Are... One!

Piano stops. Huge round of applause. I built memories.
