Tajik School Alphabet Ceremony: The Ceremony

Figure 1.-- Here are the children performing their little pieces and skits for the ceremony. Image courtesy of William Fergusson.

The ceremony lasts about an hour in which the children say the alphabet in verse rhyme and song. There are traditional Tajik dances which both boys and girls dance. There are also short skits or little plays. These tend to be of a humourous theme and make the audience laugh. Children sing nursery rhymes. Older children take part too and they play traditional instruments such as drums.
