22 May 2023 is indeed a very memorable day.
On that day, we held a learning activity with more than 200 participants －"2023 Outstanding Students Recognition Tea Gathering". After the epidemic, the campus has returned to the bustle of the past. In addition to studying, students have also actively participated in different activities and achieved good results. This activity hopes to praise these students in their studies under the witness of all guests, parents and teachers. Students with outstanding performances in terms of conduct, conduct and extra-curricular activities.
I believe that for the students, participating in every activity is also a learning opportunity. Apart from the outstanding performances of the students, if other students can gain other learning experiences through serving in different service positions, would not it be great to kill two birds with one stone? It was this idea leading to the activity of "2023 Outstanding Students Recognition Tea Gathering".
Initially, I thought it was an impossible task because the preparation of the event involved different learning areas, including: Tourism and Hospitality Studies, Home Economics, Counselling Team Stickman Project, Filming Team, Dance Team, Singing Team, Goodwill Ambassadors, etc., involving more than two hundred students. The success of the commendation tea gathering was due to the hard work of these "heroes behind the scenes".
Under the guidance of the teacher, the students studied and prepared every detail carefully, such as the production of tea and catering, etiquette for entertaining guests, venue layout, singing and dancing performances, filming, master of ceremonies and other affairs of the conference. The students showed their organizational skills and teamwork spirit during the event. They put on neat uniforms, kept their posts, and behaved sincerely and politely. These performances are worthy of our appreciation and praise. What is more, a group of parent volunteers sacrificed their rest time to return to school on a hot Sunday to help prepare food, arrange the venue, and even carefully iron each set of hospitality uniforms. I would like to express my sincere thanks to them for their love and support to the school.
Thanks to Chairperson Lo Yuen Ting, MH for being the officiant guest on that day. At the commendation tea gathering, Ms. Lo shared with her classmates her life during her studies and work, how she faced numerous challenges and moved towards her goal, and encouraged the students to go all out even if they encounter difficulties, and to overcome difficulties until they accomplish their goals. After the guest of honor's speech, there was a performance session of the school's dance team and students singing. The guests, parents and students invited to attend enjoyed the wonderful performances while tasting the catering and food cooked by the students themselves.
I especially want to thank the teachers in charge of the event, because of their persistence and hard work, they can complete this impossible mission. Finally, I wish the commended students can continue to maintain their excellent performances and lay a solid foundation for their future; at the same time, I also hope that other students can be inspired by them to pursue their dreams bravely and make continuous progress and growth.
