Japanese students graduated from Minecraft because schools in the country are quarantined due to a coronavirus pandemic since March 2, 2020. This was told by the parent of one of the students.
Typically, the school year in Japan ends in late March and begins in April. Pupils of one of the elementary schools in Japan modeled their assembly hall in Minecraft and spent their graduation evening in it.
At the same time, some schools still held graduation parties, however, limited the number of participants in the ceremonies, and obliged students to be more than a meter apart from each other and to be in medical masks.
