Portage la Prairie, MB –
Portage home schoolers celebrated their gradation over the weekend with a Bible study themed prom event at Henry Plett’s machine shed free from any of problems associated with alcohol and the opposite sex.
After more than fourteen years of education three families came together to mark the accomplishment of their sons who have gotten to know each other through once-in-a-while connecting lunches and physical education outings.
While no young females were part of the event older members of the opposite were allowed to attend.
“We allow the mothers, aunts and grandmothers of the boys to attend,” Henry Plett explained. “Although they are of the opposite sex, they are not sexual in nature. We want to avoid any sexual thoughts from tainting this blessed day.”
The evening was highlighted by the opening prayer and scripture reading followed by the singing of hymns, a special number performed by the grads and ended with a special guest speaker from Waldheim Bible Institute.
The graduation celebration included the yearly awards with the major winners as follows:
-Most Likely to Get Married and Have a Large Family – Jake Plett
-Most Likely to Become an Undertaker – Peter Roland
-Most Likely to Become a Pastor – Franklin Roland
-Best Bible Study – Jake Plett
-Most Likely to Never Have Internet – David Pauls
