I actually find the students to be abit rude in these ceremonies. Often they talk while the person on the stage is talking. And usually the teachers do nothing about this. The students at my school in Australia would never get away with that.
Unlike in western school, the students face the person presenting them with the award. And not just when they are being handed to them. They stand there while the award is being announced. It is very different to my school in Australia.
Such a learning curve!!!!!!!!!!
