It is either hot or stormy in June, just like the expression on children’s faces, either a pleased look or a sad look. Our students frequently look back on the days in the past five years. June is not a good time to say goodbye, but the graduation day approaches at a fast pace. In this graduation season, a group of students will bid farewell to their primary school life and show their talents. VKBS held agrand graduation ceremony of Grade 5 on the afternoon of June 22 to show our attention and care for students’ growth and put a perfect and unforgettable end to their primary school life.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the looped video allowed us to travel back to the moment when we met these children. Back then, they were just like small buds, waiting for the gardeners’ cultivation. Five years later, they have become thoughtful and independent teenagers! As time goes by, these children not only grow taller but also get mature. Teachers and parents present were filled with emotion that came with the scenes in the video and realized that children grow up fast before you know it.
Today, our students have graduated! The teachers and parents who have worked hard to educate them have thousands of words to say. From the perspective of VKBS, Principal Cheng Min and foreign principal Ms. C have sent messages and blessings to our students in their ownway. The Chinese and foreign head teachers who accompanied the children in their growth every day also conveyed their reluctance to separate and their expectationsfor students with sincere hearts and a few words. Besides, Yu Youyou’s father expressed his views as a parent representative of Grade 5（2）. His speechfull of profundity and wisdom may also enlighten the children.
Five years of study enable our students to break the “cocoon” into a “butterfly”. Lu Yating of Grade 5（3） and Lyu Botai of Grade 5（5） spoke as student representatives and summarized their five-year study. We also saw the art nurturance for the children from theflute playing “New World Symphony”.
At the end of the ceremony, the school leaders presented graduation certificates of primary school to each class in turn. Standing on the stage, holding flowers and graduation certificates, ourstudents were so dazzling, energetic and promising. Although their primaryschool life has come to an end, their future life has just got started at this moment. In the future, they will always be the pride of VKBS no matter where they are!
