LRJJ’s Biggest Closing Ceremony Yet
LRJJ’s Biggest Closing Ceremony Yet
    
Shanghai, China, July 10th 2013 - LRJJ’s Biggest Closing Ceremony Yet - by Ms. KatrienSchats, Lecturer

Wednesday 10th July, yet another Closing Ceremony at LRJJ, but a special one this time. 130 students at once, the biggest one yet! It was a ceremony full of speeches, performances, student videos and awards.

The speeches were given by Dr. Sacha Stöcklin, our Academic Dean; Ms. Judy Hou, our CEO; and by our guest speaker, Ms. Brigitte Trattner, the General Manager of the InterContinental Hotel in Pudong, Shanghai.

All of the speakers were happy that the students had chosen the hospitality industry. Ms. Trattner described the industry as“An industry you’ll never get bored of…” because “…it has so many different faces”. Her advice to the students was to “try as many departments as possible, never stop learning, keep asking questions, always look for things that you can improve, and have a lot of fun”.

Dr. Stocklin was inspired by American pop music in his speech. He used Christina Aguilera’s words to encourage the students to push themselves:

“Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter.”
Also some of the students had prepared some words. They thanked their family and friends for their support and the teachers for their classes.

To give more color to the ceremony the A Cappella Club lead by YosepSupriadi sang the song ‘Whenever You Remember’ by Carrie Underwood. As a second performance we had the Dance Club. In between speeches we were also entertained with some videos that students had put together about their time at LRJJ.

But, of course, the most important part was the moment when the graduates received their certificates and showed their proud faces to the audience.

Before this wonderful afternoon came to an end, the kitchen team had prepared a lot of delicious food for all the students, their friends, and family.

Congratulations to all the graduating students and good luck!
