Most nations have declared a complete lockdown due to the rapid surge in coronavirus cases. Schools and colleges have been closed for indefinite period to avoid transmission of the virus.


In such a situation, a number of students will be missing out on their graduation ceremony this year, an important part of a student’s life.


The COVID-19 crisis has made students come up with innovative tricks and ideas. A group of elementary school kids in Japan have designed their own graduation ceremony in Minecraft. As the video shows, the kids come together for the ceremony, where they receive felicitations.
