In May, the sky after the rain washed more cleanly. In this wonderful season, my heart not only has the joy of getting an offer from my dream university, it’s even sadder to say that high school time is coming to an end.
The days at WES really made me find the wonderful feel of youth and the fulfillment of a high school life. The international way in which the school teaches let me know better how to think and solve problems independently in my study and helped me lay a solid foundation of knowledge for my future study. I remember when I first started high school, I didn’t quite adapt to such a teaching method. I always thought that when I study, there is a routine or pattern that I can follow. However, during the period of contact with the A-Level courses, I gradually realized the importance of this ability in learning. For example, like the Art and Design course I chose, it is itself an innovative course which offers this kind of ability, also this way of thinking helped me earn more marks. In addition, the guide from teachers and the activities organized by the school made me understand the truth for people and prepare for the challenges that I will possibly meet when I go to university.
Sound like there are three years, but it was actually very short. In these three years, we have grown up when experiencing different challenges, joy and sadness.
At the time of graduation, I am full of longing and passion for college life, but also full of gratitude for the school and nostalgia for all the good times.

When I write the graduation speech, I even do not know how to start. I really cannot believe that I’m going to graduate, even I still remember the night three years ago when I was imaging how my high school life would be.
I feel this school is all different from my previous school: there are students from different grades in the same classes, we do not need to raise hands to answer questions and we have less homework, etc. I always say I am not like a high school student since I do not have stress from Gaokao and much homework or tests. However, my biggest change in my three years is that I can express myself confidently now. All in all, I am happy growing with the school together in these three years, thanks all teachers and goodbye my cute friends.

Time flies like a colt, before we really had time to savor the fine details of WES, we already arrived at the moment of departure.
First of all, I want to thank the school, which provides a unique learning environment for us to accept advanced teaching methods and education concepts in Changsha. Thanks for all the teachers, thank you for three years of care for me. Thank you to my classmate who have been accompanying me for the past three years, although Some bumps are inevitable. I also want to appreciate my parents for their financial and spiritual support, which enabled me to study in this school for three years
I think the most important thing I’ve learned in WES is to find a way of life that really suits you, Find the way you want to go in the future and work hard to achieve your goals step by step. Everyone is unique, so you don’t have to take the way others have walked.
This three years is neither long nor short, but for sure it’s important in our life, also, Every day is mixed with different Ups and downs that are sometimes difficult to face. We are about to separate, and fight for our goals. We will return to a new starting point and start another race in our lives. Gathering together is a kind of fate, but all good things must come an end, I will always cherish this friendship. I also wish other students can get good grades and enter the ideal university in the future.
We are so excited for the futures of our graduates and want nothing but the very best in the years to come. We believe that every one of them will succeed in anything they put their minds to.
Keep making good choices and work hard every day. You are going to be amazing!
