A traditional ceremony in the Russian schools has still managed to survive in modern times and even successfully lives in some other post-Soviet countries is commonly known as the “Last Bell.” A first-grader opened the ceremony by ringing the bell and releasing the graduates of their school time.
Girls’ attire consists of the Soviet-style school uniform, complete with white aprons and white hair bows and it seems the combination is a real hit on the internet. In the modern technological era, photos from the graduation are instantly uploaded to the social networks and guys at the Russian Yaplakal forum chose the best photos.
