“Music is a gift of human civilization and the armour of our spirit.” Throughout the many days of holding Shanghai together and fighting the pandemic from home, although teachers and students could not meet offline, they communicated vibrantly online, breaking down the barriers of space and distance. The Nightingale Choir from our Primary School performed a ‘cloud’ ensemble together with our school orchestra. We gathered in the music, collected our strength, and used music to convey love and confidence.
Singing “my motherland and I cannot be separated for a moment”, the students’ performance of “My Motherland and I” offered sincerest blessings to the motherland and our special city of Shanghai. The singers thanked everyone for their efforts and persistence.
Adding ‘icing to the cake’, the “Children’s Painting” art school team, dance team and convergence media team were also very active over the past few months. Under the guidance of their teachers, students experienced a more colourful campus life.
We miss the time when we trained and performed together face-to-face. Let us all look forward to our reunion soon!
