"20 Years School Ceremony Speech"

It is a very special and happy night for the Rockville Cantonese School (RCS) tonight. As you look around, we fill 35 tables and the atmosphere is full of joy and happiness, we can say that "The Triple Luckiness" has arrived.

The first luckiness: Tonight, we celebrate the 20 Years of RCS's establishment. Like the old proverb, it said, "Everything changes in 10 years time". We are now talking about 20 years! It is not easy to establish a school and let it blossom for years. Chinese saying, "Don't forget where you were from", the success of RCS rested on all the helping hands of all the dedicated teachers and parents.

The second luckiness: Tonight is also the ceremony for our second RCS graduation class. We have eleven graduated students this year. Our first graduation class was in the years of 2000. I am extremely pleased to see five of the years 2000 graduated students attended tonight's banquet. To graduate from the Chinese school is no easy task. You have to finish all the class and school requirements. These students set a good example as courageous and unyielding efforts to learn the Chinese language.

The third luckiness: The school will continue the scholarship program. We will not stop just because the Chinese School Association for the Washington Area has exhausted all its scholarship funds. Dr. So and his wife, Susanna, sponsor this year's scholarship funds. Two days ago, Dr. So sent thru airmail a congregations verse, just in time for tonight's ceremony. I ask all the students to continue to apply for the scholarships.

We occupy 35 tables for tonight's "three luckiness banquet." Last year we had 27 tables. The owners of this restaurant, Mr. Chan and Mr. Choi wished us that we will occupy the entire restaurant one day. I am certain that we will be able to do just that one-day. Like I said many times in the past, the success of RCS depends on the cooperation of all the teachers and parents.

I like to express my sincere thanks to all the teachers and parents who attend tonight's banquet, also thanks for their enthusiasm and supports.

Principal: Mandy Wong

今晚是洛城粵語學校特?喜慶的日子,你看高棚滿座,喜氣洋益. 歡欣萬丈,是學校三喜臨門的好日子。

第一喜:是學校創校二十過年紀念典禮. 正是"十年人事幾翻新",更何況二十年呢? 自古有云 : 創業難,守業亦難。 學校能二十年屹立不倒,欣欣向榮,真是不容易。 “飲水思源",學校能有今年,要多謝學校創校人,今晚的貴賓王懿敏校董 ( School Founder, Ms. Shirley Chow) 與開校功臣阮小玉家長,賴玉儀老師,資深最高趙高美蟬老師和第一任校長鄭碧玲,沒有她們的努力,就沒有今天粵語學校。

第二喜:是第二屆畢業典禮。今年畢業學生有十一位。第一屆畢葉典禮是在千禧龍年舉行。很高興看到第一屆畢業生中有五位能光臨參加今晚的宴會。要當上畢葉生真是不容易, 要讀到十二班才能獲得這個榮譽。他們為我們作了一個堅精不展與不斷繼續學習中文的好榜樣,值得我們所有學生去校發及追隨學習。

第三喜:學生全勤優良獎學金將會繼續舉辦。獎學金不會因為中文學校聯誼會一萬元的獎學金已頒發完畢而終止。獎 金將會由前兩天及時收到他們空郵寄來的二十過年賀聯卷軸,上寫著“教擇流長"字樣。請學生繼續努力爭獲獎學金,長流不息!

三喜臨門喜慶典禮中,剛巧晚宴開三十五檯',去年二十七檯。新財神大酒樓的老板陳先生及蔡先生希望學校能有一日席 間全問酒樓。我相信我們一定可以做到的。只要我們老師家長同心合力,熱心參加各項歡聚喜慶宴會,我們一齊把學校辦 得更好,更完善。在此,我衷心的感謝我們每位在座光臨參加典禮的家長和老師,更感謝我們家長熱心支持,風雨不攻, 接送子女功讀中文,真是精神可嘉。我僅代表全校老師獻上心形的禮盒來代表每位老師的愛心。他們將盡心和熱心教導 及服務學生。順請十年以上的家長上台接受學校嘉獎--獎狀及禮盒。謹感謝他們十年來辛勞和熱心支持,鼓勵子女學習中文。

好了,我不再"長氣"多講,頒發獎狀之後,請大家靜心欣賞精彩的節曰:古箏,中國功夫,舞蹈--仙女散花和扇 舞,還有名貴禮物抽獎,祝大家好運。

校長梁敏宜
