15. PARTING OF THE WAYS (Graduation Song) - A song for those important end-of-year Graduation celebrations & liturgies as students move from Primary to Secondary School (or from Secondary to the wider world).

A song that could be adapted for other 'farewell' occasions.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID:
"We have been using 'Parting of the Ways' for graduations for quite a few years and my Year 7 students request its use year after year. They love it; it is most appropriate and they tell me it makes their Mums cry! (And quite often – their teacher!) A terrific endorsement from their point of view". (Denise)
"We used 'Parting of the Ways' last year in our Graduation ceremony with great success. There was more than one damp eye in the congregation as our graduating students stood before them and sang this song. We first used it in 2006 and it was so beautiful that I longed for a suitable class to use it again. In a small community like ours, it is like a family farewell and the song lyrics express this so well. Thankyou". (Judia)
