School News丨FLIS幼兒園畢業典禮：I'm ready to go!!!
2020 ECE Graduation
2020年7月9日，福州西湖國際學校舉行了隆重的幼兒園畢業典禮。今天，我們大班小朋友就要畢業啦！這是孩子們此生所經歷的第一次畢業，自此，他們將告別幼兒園，成為一名小學生！On July 9, 2020, FLIS held its grand kindergarten graduation ceremony. This is the first graduation the children will ever experience in their lives, and from then on they will be saying goodbye to kindergarten and becoming a primary school student!
記得那年九月，小朋友們初來乍到，有些迅速與大家打成一片，有些害羞地躲在一邊，也有些無法適應環境、啼哭不止……如今想來，仿佛還是不久前的事情——但我們已經一起經歷了那么多！對FLIS幼兒園的每一位老師而言，看著萌寶們一天天長大，好奇地探索這個世界，變得大膽、自信，能夠以流利的英文與外教對談……這多么令人欣慰；最后一學期遭新冠肺炎疫情打亂，孩子們經過漫長等待終于再度回歸校園，這次重聚更顯珍貴！Remember that in September, when the children first arrived, some quickly mingled with everyone, some shyly hid away, and some were unable to adjust to the environment and cried from time to time… now it seems like it wasn't that long ago -- but we've been through so much together! For every teacher in the ECE Department at FLIS, it was so gratifying to watch these cute babies grow up and explore the world with curiosity, becoming bold and confident, able to speak fluent English to foreign teachers. The last semester was disrupted by the COVID-19 epidemic, so it was so precious to see our ECE kids after a long wait, when we were finally back together on campus.
典禮當日，伴著兩位老師的鋼琴演奏音，幼兒園畢業生們緩緩入場。副校長Jeanne女士與幼兒園主管Chloe女士分別上臺致辭，為孩子們送上美好祝福。為向這一階段告別，也為了迎接即將到來的新生活，全體畢業生們為大家帶來一曲《我準備好了》（I'm ready to go）。動人的一曲落幕，臺下觀禮家長也不禁感慨萬千。之后，全體教師上臺，孩子們一一接過頒發的畢業證書。On the day of the ceremony, ECE graduates slowly entered the stage, accompanied by the piano playing of two teachers. Ms. Jeanne, the Vice Principal, and Ms. Chloe, the ECE Principal, gave speeches to the children and sent them their best wishes. To say goodbye to this phase of their life and to welcome the new life ahead, all the graduates performed a song called “I’m ready to go". The touching song ended, and the parents could not help but feel the emotion. Afterwards, all the teachers went on stage and the children received their graduation certificates one by one.
Once again, a big thank you to all parents for supporting their children and FLIS! There is still a long way to go in the future; FLIS will continue to work hard with your trust, and we hope the children will continue to move forward with the love of FLIS. Congratulations!
