Addresses from School Leaders
The Joint Diploma Program between Chengdu ShishiHigh Schooland Fairmont aims at helping you to become true global citizens, well-equipped to understand and operate between nations as well as within. For those who understand our two cultures, our two countries understand a majority of the peoples on the planet. When you have a grasp of English and Chinese you speak languages of growth and development, of wealth, and of power.
We at Fairmont are very proud to have been a part of your education and will be eager to watch as you continue to grow and learn. We want you to visit us when you are in southern California, and we want to hear how you are doing in college and beyond.
College will not be easy. It will be full of challenges: more language to learn – that of a college campus and college life. You will complete laboratory work, do research, write essays, debate and hopefully have fun and find friends, maybe even love.
This experience will add to the education you have received here in Chengdu. You’ll learn more about American culture, American roommates, being an adult, and more about fields that you can probably not even imagine now.
And for all of your hard work (and you’ll need to work hard), the benefits can be tremendous. We wish you all the luck in the world, but with hard work, you don’t need luck, since you will make your own.
Congratulations Joint Diploma Class of 2019!
This moment in time is your movement from childhood to adulthood. In our modern world, no other moment in time is more significant for a young man or woman. There will be more significant moments to come in your future of course, but sitting here today, you stand between the end of your childhood and the start of your adulthood. This is your first rite of passage. This is your first ending and your first new beginning.
For any student graduating from high school, this is an important moment, but for all of you, it is even more profound. In just two or three short months you will be boarding a plane with a one way ticket to a new place, a new culture.

Practice makes perfect. The saying is boring, and sometimes annoying, but 100 percent accurate. TOEFL writing part is hard, and here, practice doesn’t merely mean sitting in front of laptop and write a 400 word essay within thirty minutes like during a test. Rather, practice is merged into our daily life. Next time writing an essay, try to include some high level fancy words we played in Kahoot quiz with Mr.A. Physics, Calculus, and Statistics are not only limited in math, they can certainly get our mind trained and make our passage more logical in explaining our thoughts. Human Geography provides us tons of examples, especially when we encounter passage like discussing global issues, education issues, everything like that. Considering speaking skills, find something and talk with our teachers. Fortunately Mr.Jelly and I are both premier league fan and I always spend a few minutes starting a conversation with him before or after the class. You see, practice should be merged into of our study rather than left alone in some word documents.
