LDS Primary Graduation Ideas


When the primary children turn 12 they move onto the Young Women and Young Men programs. When I was primary president I would do an interview with the graduating child using the interview sheet below. I would also check to see if they had passed off all of their requirements for their Faith in God Award. If they had than I would sign their Faith in God Certificate and have the Bishop sign it as well. Then during opening exercises of primary we would have them come up front and spotlight some of the answers they gave during the interview. We would then sing either their favorite song or the Farewell, Goodbye song. We would also give them one of these cute Journals. They are made from a composition book and one of the printables below. You could also just buy a journal if you would prefer. Then our Beehive or Deacon classes would come and get the graduating child from primary.  The bishop, primary president and the teacher of the graduating child also get to sign the Certificate of Advancement. This is usually provided to the primary president by the Ward Clerk.





Here are the lyrics to the Farewell song (I am not sure who wrote the lyrics). The song is sung to the Primary song, "Hello Song" found in the Children's Songbook pg. 260.

Farewell Song
Farewell, (Adios)
See ya later (Alligator)
We're sad to see you go (Goodbye).
Farewell, (Adios)
See ya later (Alligator)
We're glad you came our way.
To share with us on primary day.
And be our friend in a very special way.
Farewell, (Adios)
See ya later (Alligator)
We're sad to see you go (Goodbye).
