School Anniversary, when classrooms turn into shops, and campus into performing
A. School Anniversary
Every year, to celebrate school anniversary that falls on November 15th, we hold a series of activities to guarantee all the visitors an enjoyable day. We have various performances from extracurricular clubs like marching band and honor guards, in-line skating, hot dance, and school choir, some of which are highly entertaining. We also hold exhibitions on works of students from advertisement design department, an artistic touch to the lively celebration.
B. Practical Shops
The trademark activity is the Practical Shops, whose purpose is to enhance students’ understanding of the procedure of opening a shop. It is hoped that students can apply what they have learned in class to open and run a simulated shop.
The yearly practical shops are set up by the seniors of the year, from
both day and night schools. Each class forms their own separate shop,
and the classroom thus takes the form of the location of the very shop.
Just like regular shops, the practical shops are run by the
students throughout the process, from the early design of framework, through
planning, budget raising, application for permission of setup, and finally
to the conclusive check and count. The high participation of the students
can not possibly be compared by outdoor bazaars held in other schools.

In addition to the clubs listed above, there are contests and competitions
of all kinds on the campus; for instance, there are frequent contests
on topic writing, Chinese calligraphy, speech, and reciting, etc. All
these make it possible for the students to exert what they have learned.
Inter-class competitions, such as sports contest, military songs contest,
classroom decoration, or poster drawing, also have the effects on uniting
the whole class and enhance their sense of honor. The parents of students
are regularly invited to school to attend meetings, so that better understandings
between the parents and the school, as well as the chance to work together
on the students' problems, are thus available. Irregular speeches are held
to broaden the students' knowledge. The Weekly Meetings of all students
plays the role of reinforcing their legal conceptions. Activities of blood
donation or CPR training is a virtual practice of helping people. The
organization of study groups helps students to read more good books, to
inspire their minds, and to facilitate their mental interactions with
