Flag Raising Ceremony in August
2017-08-14

[SCIE web news, Aug 14th, 2017] Along with the summer heat, students of SCIE came back to the college, looking forward to another new semester. After a two-month long break, everyone was so refreshed and energetic. Unlike many flag raising ceremonies, it was also a welcoming gathering to our new students. They will start a new journey in SCIE, with their desires and dreams.   

The main content of the flag raising ceremony: welcomed the new teachers and students; awarded the winners of Global Citizenship Award; introduced the new Prefects; congratulated the winners of the American Physics Cup Competition and Peterhouse Essay Competition. 

Mr. Greenwood warmly welcomed all the new students, and sent his best wishes to them, hoping every student can enjoy his/her high school life here, work hard and also don’t miss the wonderful journey in SCIE. To express his joy and longing, Mr. Greenwood quoted a poem:

 

Summer Rain 

What could be lovelier than to hear the summer rain
Cutting across the heat, as scythes cutting across grain?
Falling upon the steaming roof with sweet uproar,
Tapping and rapping wildly at the door?
No, do not lift the latch, but through the pane
We'll stand and watch the circus pageant of the rain,
And see the lightening, like a tiger, striped and dread,
And hear the thunder cross the shaken sky with elephant tread.

– Elizabeth Coatsworth

Every year, a group of new teachers came and joined SCIE family, Mr. Greenwood introduced each of them to the students, and hope we can all get along well, and make progress together. 

What came next was awarding time. According to the selection criteria of Global Citizenship Award, which evaluated each student’s performance in Extra-curricular activities, community services, classroom performance and so on, the top results of last year came out, and Mr. Greenwood awarded the outstanding winners and applaud  for their achievement.  

Carefully selected by the school, the new prefects came to the stage and showed their great attitude toward student service. The Prefect team was a passionate and dedicated collective which made SCIE more like a big family.

Thomas, the head of Physics department, announced the result of the American Physics Cup Competition. As usual, our students made some great achievements: the Global Individual Award Top 100, Team award, Divisional Individual Award and so on.

In the last school year, some students participated the Peterhouse Essay Competition (from Cambridge University), and performed so well in their writing skill, especially in the essay of Science and History. Some of their work were even marked as “Highly Recommended”. Sarah, the most outstanding student, was highly praised by Mr. Greenwood.

The flag raising ceremony is over, and the new semester starts! Mr. Greenwood announced.
