SOME 500 Form Five and Form Six students from SMJK Sam Tet in Ipoh marked a major milestone when they attended their graduation day at the school.

It was an equally meaningful event for their parents and teachers — witnessing their labour of love for the children.

The ceremony also saw students going on stage to receive awards for excelling in various areas, from good conduct, full school attendance to sports and music.

Describing the school years as a “lifelong treasure”, school principal Teh Eow Kok said the graduation ceremony marked the start of a more challenging phase for the students and advised them to persevere and be diligent at all times.

Chairman of the school board of governor Monsignor Stephen Liew Khoay Siong told the students that life was full of opportunities and that their future was in their hands.

“The ceremony today is a special event, a culmination of your efforts all these years.

“Be courageous and continue to soldier on,” advised Liew.

Parent-Teacher Association chairman Desmond Chen Kian Loy’s advice to the students was to cast their vision far and wide and strive to realise their dreams.

He also hoped that the students would contribute to the school in future.

The school’s Old Boys Association chairman Chak Kong Keong reminded the students on the importance of gratitude, using the Chinese saying, “Yin Shui Si Yuan” ( when you drink water, remember the source).

He hoped the students would continue to have the school at heart and contribute to keeping it a strong and progressive institution.
