It is pleased to see the connection between alumnus in different years has getting closer and closer and their return assistance to the school students has great impact on their life learning. Quoted by Mr. Greenwood’s poem below, no matter how far you go, SCIE will always be your sweet home to return.
Just as every salmon swimming
Through the ocean deep and vast
Must return to its beginning
So we wander home at last
As the pigeon bound for roaming
Flapping wings will fly away,
Has been found to start her homing
So we come back to Shui Wei
But the poets solemn duty
Is to make words rhyme and scan
So let us embrace the beauty
Of SCIE in Antuo Shan
