    Schoolkids dance during the celebration of the Last Bell on Red Square.

    Russian high-school seniors graduated and said farewell to their student years on May 25, in a time-honored ritual that includes the ceremonial ringing of the "Last Bell" at schools all over the country.

    With lots of tears, but also delight and pride, the graduating 11th-graders put on celebratory ribbons to mark the day. The last bell is a symbol of the end of school-life. Students danced, performed on stage and thanked their schools, teachers, and parents for their support.
