As an ancient Chinese poem says ‘a few early warblers fight for a warm tree, and some new swallows peck the spring mud’. With the lively sound of birds’ chirp and outdoor signs of spring, we finally have the new semester coming! Our children return to campus with unchanging dreams and this is a brand new start and a new hope. Under the bright red flag of our motherland, these flowers of the future are ready to go!
On February 22nd, at the grand opening ceremony of new semester, Principal Agnes expressed her expectations and blessings of the new year and new semester for all students with four key words: life, new, ox and dream. All teachers will also accompany students to sail through the winds and waves, travel in the ocean of knowledge and bravely climb new heights.
Life — The true spirit of life is about living happily and healthily. We should show respect to life, then we are able to have a bright future.
New — In this new semester, we should have a wonderful new day, meet some new friends, have new tries and welcome a new self!
Ox — No pain, no gain. We should treasure time and work hard like an ox, continue to be down-to-earth, and go forward in this year of the ox!
Dream — Dream is people’s best expectation and extension of life. Having a dream means you also have hope. I truly wish all your dreams could come true and at the same time you can enjoy the best view during this journey.
The stars of the award ceremony extremely sparkled and all fruitful results were the reward of the hard work in the past year. As an old saying says, ‘strong wind reflects the strongest grass and rain shows the most beautiful flower’. In this past extraordinary academic year, I would congratulate all our students on their amazing achievements and awards that they have made efforts on. They have improved themselves and progressed a lot.
We are like the rising sun, the buds of the early spring, the colorful rainbow after a rain and young eagles who spread their wings. I hope that all teachers and students could work together to create a fresh new chapter in this new semester.
