A school is nothing without students. It has lost all its life. The return of students brings energy, excitement and brings the building to life with joyous laughter, active bodies, and curious minds so we are happy to welcome you all back for the second semester.
Let’s work together to make this semester a very positive one.
We encourage you all to be independent learners and to be the best that you, individually, can be. We encourage you to make wise choices, to think for yourself, and not to be afraid of making mistakes either. Mistakes are new learning opportunities there is no such meaning as perfect.
We encourage you to work to discover your strengths and make them shine and look to improve the things you think you are not good at. They may prove to be your greatest talents those that you haven’t discovered yet. Be courageous, be a risk taker.
We want you to be happy in school and to find that happiness through learning and discovering new things by yourself and with your classmate’s teachers and parents. Share with your parents about your learning. Ask their help sometimes but also learn to solve things yourself. Never be afraid to ask questions that is how you truly learn and to be fascinated, not scared, by things you don’t understand and want to work out. Don’t be scared to speak out in English and in Chinese. We will support you.
The responsibility is being given to you to find out what you are really interested in learning about, for yourself, and always remember that your talents will be different to your classmates because you are all unique with your individual passions, ideas, and skills. Make your own choices.
We wish you a very happy new year of the ox. Welcome back to OCAC. Have a wonderful semester of new learning.
