This picture was taken on May 31st, 2007 on the last day of school at Zhovkva Secondary School Number 1 in Western Ukraine. These three girls have just finished first grade and are wearing traditional Ukrainian clothing. They're holding flowers that they will give their teachers in appreciation of the past school year. The Last Bell Ceremony is celebrated on the last day of May every year. The school year is officially finshed when a graduating 11th grader carries a 1st grader on his shoulder as she "rings" out the school year.
