On February 14th, the school opening ceremony was held in CDEFLS (West Campus), where six grades (over 4,000 students and 400 teachers and staff) attended the ceremony which represented another new journey in this semester.
The ceremony began with raising the national flag. Speeches were given by students, teachers and the headmaster. The student representative, Wang Junlin, said that the students should learn from them-selves, from the teachers and the elders and from the society in order to make progress, to satisfy parents, to pride the school and to contribute to the society. Then the teachers representative, Mr. Zhong, gave a speech titled “To Cherish” which encouraged students to cherish life and friendship, to focus more on the progress of learning and growing up. He urged the students to strive for their dreams and to get ready for any challenges.
At last, the headmaster expressed his wishes and also put forward several requirements for both students and teachers. Students should remain grateful, take the initiative to fight for the best and be proud of themselves who can bring pride and honor to the school. As for the teachers, they are supposed to be responsible and dedicated. They should cooperate with each other to fulfill the teaching aims.
The first day of this semester began with the hope that every grade would be successful after their hard work.
