Forging Ahead Together, Embracing the Future/ 携手共进,展望未来 立化67周年校庆

By Tang Kexin/ 唐可欣 (3F)


To celebrate RV’s 67th school anniversary, students across the school came together to put up a one-of-a-kind skit that depicted the lives of RVians before, during and after the COVID pandemic.


The skit started with a scene of life before the pandemic. The school was bustling with activity as students prepared for upcoming competitions, teasing each other and lamenting about their academics while enjoying school life to the fullest - until the sudden onset of the Circuit Breaker. The joyous atmosphere instantly became tense as performers returned to the stage, holding stands that represented computers.


Filled with anxiety and uncertainty, the performers struggled while getting used to the “new normal”, with students and teachers alike facing many challenges throughout this period.


However, it was these challenges that allowed the RV spirit to shine through. In a showcase of RVians' collaborative spirit and never-say-die attitude, the performance showed how RVians took the initiative to help each other throughout the pandemic, forging ahead together while embracing the challenges that came their way.


The audience felt their hearts swell with optimism as Guo Jingyou (23J05) started singing 惜 (“Xi”). The RV Wushu members also joined the students in the hall to lead them in executing the

立化拳 (”Li Hua Quan”), which symbolises the indomitable spirit of RVians. The performance came to an impactful conclusion as the performers congregated on stage and recited the school values together as a show of unity.


Overall, the performers blew the crowd away with their extraordinary performance, highlighting the theme of the celebrations - “Forging Ahead Together, Embracing the Future”.


Many RVians, including alumni who returned to attend the celebrations, could relate to the skit’s message of moving together as one RV, hand in hand. Despite the fact that many of them did not have much experience in acting, they still managed to wow the audience with their well-coordinated and expressive performance that was enjoyed by all in attendance.

随着冠病疫情的趋缓,我们终于可以齐聚一堂庆祝立化67周年校庆。首先登场的是校园歌曲创作比赛的冠军得主罗梓迅和辛恺溪演唱他们的得奖作品“希望远航”。接着,校庆以“立化艺廊”的开幕剪彩仪式拉开帷幕,参与剪彩仪式的主宾还包括现任校长蔡慧燕、第五任校长梁环清女士、第九任校长李惠棣女士和杰出校友黄振霄医生。黄医生在致词时,与立化师生分享了他多年来的创业心得。黄医生引用修身齐家治国平天下这句话展开他的分享。修身,指的是他在立化求学时的修生养性;齐家,在于建立一个关系紧密的团队;治国,在于管理好整个团队;平天下,在于尽自己应有的社会责任。他也跟大家分享他人生的座右铭——“舍得,有舍才有得,先舍再得”,借此提醒立化学子,不负众望需要很多割舍,要先舍弃眼前的干扰,才可以得到更多的回报。

这次校庆最大的亮点就是立化学生呈献的舞台剧。这个剧目通过一首首立化歌曲串起一个个发生在立化的故事,从娓娓动听的“立化情”到振奋人心的“立化拳”,体现立化师生如何在疫情期间展现坚韧不拔与携手共进的精神。剧终时,演员们推出一个生日蛋糕为67周年校庆划下一个美丽的句点。

祝愿立化67岁生日快乐,与日月争光兮,与天地共久长!
