Japanese school holds graduation on Minecraft

The coronavirus quarantine in Japan has not stopped one school from celebrating their graduation.

The students were so determined not to miss out, they built their virtual graduation ceremony – on Minecraft!

The father of one of the boys involved shared pictures on social media saying it looks as good as the real thing.

The students built a huge assembly hall with a stage and seating. They also had a red carpet for all the virtual classmates to walk down.

Minecraft has become a place for students in Japan to hang out, following the government’s decision to close schools two weeks ago.
