Japanese students missed their graduation day as schools remain closed in Japan due to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, but a group of graduating elementary students found a way to celebrate the joyous moment in “Minecraft.”
The virtual graduation was made possible by a group of friends who created an assembly hall in the popular video game “Minecraft,” according to SoraNews24.

What’s even more amazing is that they never had any help from teachers or faculty members at their school to achieve this project.
