Sample Emcee Script for Moving Up or Graduation Ceremony 2023

Sample Emcee Script for Moving Up or Graduation Ceremony

A emcee script in the graduation ceremony is quite helpful because all schools will be conducting or celebrating graduation rites or moving up ceremonies every year. For those teachers who are assigned to be EMCEEs or Masters of Ceremonies but don’t yet have a guide, this emcee script will be useful for them.

An emcee script is sometimes difficult because there is a protocol to follow. Teachers who are always assigned to be the emcee at every event should be trained to guide them. Not only English majors but teachers from all subject areas must attend because not all English majors will be assigned to be hosts, but I believe all teachers who have the potential or ability to speak or communicate should also attend.

I. Processional 

Good morning. We are grateful to be able to celebrate graduation day once more this year because we want the graduates to remember it or mark it on their calendars for the years to come. Despite the fact that we are still dealing with the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic, the fact that we are here today to celebrate graduation is a great blessing for us. It signifies the end of one phase of one’s educational journey and the beginning of another, more challenging phase of one’s quest for a better life and future.

The art of beginning is great, but the art of ending is even greater. It is precise to acknowledge and recognize all the working hands that made this graduation ceremony possible. Ladies and gentlemen, our FPTA President, Mr. Ronie T. Milao, in his words of acknowledgement and closing remarks.

IX. Recessional    

 SHS graduates, be bold, courageous, and be your best. Your journey is never-ending. There’s always going to be growth, improvement, and adversity; you’ve just got to take it all in and do what’s right, continue to grow, and continue to live in the moment. To dream high is like reaching for the stars. Wherever you go, go with all your heart. If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door so that success will come to you. Face the challenges confidently and be positive in overcoming them. Congratulations!

The Recessional…….

This emcee script at a graduation is helpful for the newly hired teachers in schools who are appointed as hosts or emcees. Teachers will be guided in what they say, even if each school celebrates the event in its own unique way.

The usefulness of the emcee script at the graduation is as a guide or a door to open up the teachers’ ideas about what to do at the graduation. It helps them embark and add more colors to make the event more memorable for the graduates. The best graduation ceremonies are in the hands of the emcee and how she/he runs the program.Doki | Helpline PH
