School Song & Graduation Farewell Song

Two songs impressed everyone deeply throughout the graduation ceremony. One was the school song, in which the lyrics of “pursuing excellence, braving the wind and waves” made students feel like going back to the time when they just entered the school.

The other was the graduation farewell song See you again. Written by graduates themselves, it echoed in the whole concert hall with piano accompaniment. The lyrics and voices were full of longing for the four years junior high school and nostalgia for school life.

Award & Certificate & Group Photo

Best Graduate Awards were presented at the graduation ceremony to the following students evaluated by the school.  They were CHEN Jiayi, ZHANG Yaqiao, WANG Weihan, JIN Mincheng and LIANG Xinning from the junior high school of the International Division.

Next was the most anticipated moment for graduates.  They went onto the stage and received graduation certificate presented by the School Principal Mr. Li, who shook hands with them one by one and finally they took group photos together as a souvenir. After the ceremony, the graduates took group photos with teachers, classmates and parents freely, freezing the warm and unforgettable moment.

Some junior high school graduates will stay on Hua Er campus for senior high school education and others will go to other schools around the world for further study. They will all start a new journey upon graduation from junior high school, and the International Division hopes that the year-2021 junior high school graduates will continue “pursuing excellence and braving the winds and waves” and the International Division is looking forward to “seeing you again”!
