1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The Sixth Form 7 Graduation Ceremony ~ The Vote of Thanks by the Student Representative

Dear Dr. Marcus Chiu, Ms. Pang, Board of Stewards, IMC members, Our Honorable guests, Parents, Principal Mr. Chan, Teachers and Fellow students,

I am Wong Yuen Tung from 7A. It is my honor to share a few words here today on behalf of all the fellow graduates.

I have been studying in this school for seven years and it has been the most precious and important part of my life. In these years I have so many joyful and happy experiences, and, of course, there were also challenges. I was never alone as my dear classmates, schoolmates and teachers accompanied me throughout my secondary school life.

Our Principal has given us so many resources, not because of our request, but because he would like to provide us with the best. Every time we came across him, he smiled at us and asked how we were doing. There is no doubt that the workload of a secondary school principal is heavy, but our principal is still willing to spend hours on chatting and sharing his care and love with us. We really have learnt so much from you, thank you, Mr. Chan.

I wish also to thank all our teachers, because they have been so dedicated and thoughtful. Some sent e-mails to give us highlights in study and encouragements. Some sacrificed their personal time to give us extra lesson. Some even gave their cell phone numbers to us so that we could ask them whenever we had questions. We were so busy during the study leave and so were our teachers. We were so nervous during the examinations and so were our teachers. I would really like to, once again, give them our big thanks.

It seemed to me that the cert-level examination was tough when I was in form five, but now I could see that the two-year advanced-level study was even more difficult. There were times when I really wanted to give up and times when I felt frustrated. I was so glad that we have been facing every hurdle hand in hand. I am most grateful to all my classmates, for their love, care and support.

Most of us have been studying in this school for seven years and there are also classmates who have been studying in this school for a much shorter time. But no matter how long each of us has been joining the Makopanian family, I am sure that he, she or I myself will never forget the best friends, classmates, teachers, principal and all that had been done for us.

We will soon become alumni of the school after graduation. To demonstrate that we are still part of the school, we would like to contribute to the alumni scholarship, which serves as an academic support to our fellow schoolmates. We all think that this is very meaningful.

Finally, I sincerely hope that all our F.7 graduates could lead our life according to our school motto and the teaching of Jesus Christ, that is “Be the salt and the light of the world”. May our Lord be glorified.

Thank you very much.
