Principal’s Message - July 2023

Sharing on the Golden Jubilee Variety Show

It is with great pleasure that I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who contributed to the resounding success of the Golden Jubilee Variety Show. On the evening of July 15th, the school hall was transformed into a spectacular stage, showcasing the myriad talents of our teachers, students, parents, and alumni. The tireless efforts of each participant culminated in a mesmerizing performance that left an indelible mark on our collective consciousness.

The theme of our 50th anniversary event, " With gratitude we share our past, with courage we carve our future”, was deftly embodied by the performers who masterfully blended tradition with modernity. The opening of the show was performed by the orchestra, which had a thrilling rhythm. Two students recited with great emotion and expression, while the Chinese music ensemble presented a unique performance, adding a festive atmosphere to the show. A duet sang with sincere emotions, their voices full of spiritual light. The choir sang with confidence, creating a beautiful harmony that made us want to clap our hands in appreciation. The jazz dance was a brilliant performance, with agile and dynamic movements. The a cappella choir, led by a remarkable vocalist, transported the audience to a world of ethereal beauty. The band performance by three students was a bold and daring experiment that showcased the depth of their musical talents. The Hungarian and Ukrainian folk dances were exquisite performances that left us spellbound, with their intricate choreography and stunning costumes. The parents' rendition of "Red Sun" was a stirring tribute that underscored their unwavering support for the school's mission. Finally, the short film "Hoiping Years" was a poignant reminder of the school's illustrious history, accompanied by a theme song that captured the essence of the jubilee celebrations. The short film, "Hoiping Years," was a poignant retrospective of the school's progress over the past 50 years, accompanied by the jubilee's theme song, which stirred our emotions and filled our hearts with a sense of pride and nostalgia. The lyrics, "Inheritance, innovation, and construction, embracing hope, let's work together to create," were a testament to the school's commitment to nurturing future generations of talented individuals.

In addition to thanking the performers on stage, we must also thank the bilingual emcees who handled the event with dignity, flexibility, and coordination. We also appreciate the reception team, stage management team, sound, and lighting team, as well as the teachers and students in charge of photography and videography, who worked tirelessly and supported each other through their hard work. The teachers and students responsible for designing the program, tickets, and decoration at the entrance, as well as the staff and IT technicians in the school office, all contributed their meticulous efforts, making the whole event run smoothly. You are all unsung heroes! Thank you to all the participating students who made everyone see the inheritance and innovation, witnessing that Hoiping is a place to discover talents. Practice requires perseverance, and you have achieved it! I sincerely express my appreciation and gratitude to you.

Hoiping has talented students and teachers. They not only guide and lead, but also perform on stage, singing and dancing. They played "Canon in D," performed a cappella, and presented a Mandarin short play. We also had performances that rival those of Korean girl groups. Colleagues, you are really excellent. You not only handle daily teaching and administrative work, but also participate in creation and rehearsal. I am truly grateful for your contributions and for setting an example for students. This is the best birthday gift for Hoiping's golden jubilee. Thank you, colleagues. It is your help that molds the students and your contributions that have made Hoiping what it was in the past, what it is today, and what it will be in the future.

In closing, I would like to express my profound gratitude to all those who participated in the Golden Jubilee Variety Show, whether as performers or audience members. Your efforts have truly made Hoiping proud, and I hope that this event will be remembered as a testament to the school's enduring legacy of excellence. May we continue to nurture and inspire generations of students to come, and may Hoiping's star shine ever brighter in the years to come.
