2018-01-31

[SCIE web news, Jan 31st, 2018] On January 30, 2018, it was the coldest moment of the year in Shenzhen, but it was also the warmest day in the history of Shenzhen College of International Education(SCIE). After 7 years hard work, the new campus of SCIE, was finally breaking ground with the strong support from the government and all sectors of society.

 

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus of SCIE began at 10:10 AM, and it was celebrated, not only by the director of SCIE, the school leaders, the representatives of staff, parents, alumni and students, but also by the officers of relevant government departments, project managers and supervisors, builders and other distinguished guests.

 

Our principal of SCIE, Mr. Joe Greenwood was invited to address a speech for the new campus. In his speech, he recalled his first visit to the Shui Wei campus in 2005, and now, twelve and half years later, it seems fitting that I should be making a speech during my final year, bookending to some extent the Shui Wei years. he said, and used a biblical quote to express his feeling: “‘Moses then went up Mount Nebo to the top of Pisgah, looked over the promised land of Israel spread out before him, and died, at the age of one hundred and twenty. Standing here, like Moses, and looking down on the promised land, we should all begin our preparations for a new and exciting phase in the history of SCIE. He also mentioned that, the new campus will have better facilities, more classrooms, nicer dormitories, more space for sports, more specialized rooms for student activities, a theatre, a swimming pool and much, much more. At last, he congratulated the Board of SCIE on having the vision to make this bold step forward into a new era.

  

What came next was the speech of Mr. Neil Mobsby, our principal-elected. 9 years ago, when I walked into the Shui Wei campus, I heard a lot about the new campus, and at that time, everyone thought it would happen immediately, but its not until today, it finally comes true. Its a long process of building a new campus. The board had to go through all the planning and permission making sure everything about the new school would be perfect, safe, good for students, so it did take a long time. We have been waiting for many years, and we are here for the next step. Mr. Mobsby also said he was so pleased that the Board have the confidence to stick with the dream of building a new campus, and he felt so proud to be the first principal, and he said he couldnt wait to welcome all students and alumni to come when the beautiful new school is ready.

 

Then, Mr. Wei Qingguo, the Party Secretary and the Director of The Second Construction Engineering Company LTD. of CSCEC, came to the stage and addressed a speech. He was moved by everyone who came to this ceremony in such a cold weather, and he wanted to share two sentences with us: I devote my whole life to the dream of an architect, making every effort to build high-quality architectural works one by one; we hope SCIE would be the best place for children to grow up by providing them the best education environment. And we also hope, together with SCIE, we can make the new campus as one of the masterpieces in our works.

 

On behalf of the China Overseas Supervision Ltd., Mr. Wu Lijun, the Vice General Manager extended his warm congratulations on the ground-breaking of the new campus, and his sincere gratitude to SCIE for entrusting the management and supervision of this project to him, which played an important role in the transformation and upgrading to his company. For the following work, we would always bear in mind that its our major responsibilities to monitor the project quality and make sure the safety of it. We must work hard, devote ourselves to fulfilling our mission. At the end of his speech, he also mentioned that they already set up a first-class team for this project and developed a very reasonable procedure of management. We must achieve the construction target on schedule and return SCIEs trust and support with outstanding performance. he promised. 

After the session of issuing the order of project commencement to the representatives of the China Overseas Supervision Ltd., and the Second Construction Engineering Company Ltd. of CSCEC, the ground-breaking activity began. All those attending to the ceremony were invited to take the shovel and lay the cornerstone with heavy soil, sprinkling their expectation and blessing for the new campus.  

After the completion of the new campus, the conditions of SCIE will leap to a new level. SCIE will continue its efforts to strengthen the leading position in China, and strive for making greater international influence, and it will become one of the most successful soft environment in Shenzhen, to cultivate more outstanding talents for the future of Shenzhen and China.
