- No expensive graduation balls should be held in five-star hotels of exclusive restaurants compelling graduating students to participate and contribute additional and excessive amounts.
- Any contributions already collected from graduating students and/or parents or guardians, whether voluntary or compulsory, for alleged expenses for these graduation balls should be reimbursed provided the amounts already expended are properly audited.
