CI-USP Lautoka Campus Successfully Held Chinese Class Graduation Ceremony

On November 15, CI-USP (Confucius Institute at the University of South Pacific) Lautoka campus successfully held its sixth Chinese class graduation ceremony. Dr. Pramila Devi, Director of the campus and some senior staff were present at the event.

In her speech, Dr. Devi firstly congratulated all the students who successfully completed the Chinese study in this semester. Her special congratulations also went to the two students who are going to study in China for four weeks in December and wished them success in China. At the same time, she sang high praise of the achievements of CI-USP Lautoka campus especially the great success of the In-House training programme conducted for the first time at Lautoka Campus. She also wished Chinese Courses in Primary School success in the future as it is ongoing now! In addition, she showed her special appreciation to the efforts made by the Chinese lecturer who was to finish her work in Fiji and go back China. After that, the certificates of completion were issued to all the Chinese students by Dr. Devi. And those excellent students and outstanding students got their awards respectively.

After the certificates conferment, the chorus The Flowing Stream kicked off the beginning of the performance. After that, the Chinese minority dance Look at the Moon won great applauds from the audience. Then the beautiful song The Moon Presents My Heart by In-house Training students found an echo with the audience. And the lovely songs Love Song in Kangding & Welcome to Beijing brought a fresh feeling about China to all the audience. At last, the Chinese lecturer who is going to leave Fiji sang the song The Moon Presents My Heart again which best interpreted her deep attachment to Fiji. In the end, with the Fijian farewell Song IsaLei by all the CI-USP Lautoka campus students, the graduation ended with the sad mood of departure. All the teachers and students took pictures and exchanged wishes at the end of the ceremony. Now Chinese courses have not only served as a way for studying Chinese, but also functions as a bond and bridge connecting different nations and different cultures.
