As the golden sun comes out, we cheerfully begin a new day in Guangzhou Huamei International School. I really enjoy working here because of its fresh air and green trees. Look, students in Guangzhou Huamei International School are full of energy. They are young and vigorous. School is their second home. On this beautiful campus, various activities are held to educate the students. Here I will introduce you two valuable events in our school.
The first one is sports meeting. The annual sports meeting is one of the biggest events for us. On the afternoon of November 15th, we had the opening ceremony in track and field. Everyone was ready for that. Each class gave a wonderful performance. Sports Meeting was interesting and exciting. We liked it very much. Students took part in different sport events the next day. Many students, teachers and parents got together in track and field. All the contestants tried their best to win the prize for their class. Some students watched the competition and took some pictures. Others were busy writing some scripts to encourage and support their classmates who were striving for success in track and field. Both 1500-metre races and the relay races were exciting. Everyone cheered for the competitions, especially when the contestants put on a spurt in the last few metres to win the race. When they scored for their own class, their classmates were so excited that they screamed and jumped to their feet. All the students and teachers were tired but they were so happy.
The second meaningful event is parents meeting. Parents meeting provides a good opportunity for teachers and parents to have a better communication face to face. From the parents meeting, parents can have a better understanding about their children and the school, so that they can cooperate with teachers better.
Every parents meeting is well prepared and organized. Take one parents meeting of my class for example. Some students were selected to host the parents meeting. And teachers of this class were invited to give a speech in the parents meeting. To help parents know more about their kids, students’ voice from their heart was heard. Many of them expressed their thanks and deep love to the parents and teachers. Some of them said they would try their best to behave well, and they also hoped their parents would understand them better and not to be too strict with them. Others hoped that their teachers and parents would leave them some time and space. Parents also expressed what they wanted from their children and the school. At last, parents could see their kids put on some performance, like singing, dancing, telling English stories etc. In a word, the meeting built a bridge between our school and parents.
As a teacher, I sincerely hope that all students graduated from Guangzhou Huamei International School will be proud that they don’t idle away time when they look back. There is no doubt that their unforgettable school life in Guangzhou Huamei International School will be one part of their best memories.
