The smiling, gorgeous, handsome and “dressed to kill” individuals, the graduates and their teachers, family and friends, filled the Nan Hua Academy assembly hall to the capacity. Students who just finished learning Basic Computers, Ms Office & Pastel Accounting Courses at Nan Hua Academy and Basic computer courses graduates from Mamelodi gathered here to receive their hard-earned certification.
The speeches from graduate representatives were mostly expressing the appreciation to the temple for providing such an opportunity for them to gain some valuable computer skills, to kick-start their lives and get rid of poverty. The graduates thanked the staff at the academy for all the hard work and patience they put into ensuring success in acquiring the knowledge. They wished them a very successful life, and to continue helping other students in the future.
The graduations also was also attended by some of the Nanahua Academy sponsors, some of whom got an opportunity to deliver a speech, for example Mrs Du Man Yin and Mr. Phillip Chen. In their speech they encouraged the graduates to be brave, and to face all life difficulties with strong heart and determination, to be aware of the opportunities that present themselves, and also to get up every morning with a new hope of success in whatever they dream off.
The Keynote address was delivered by Venerable Hui Xing, the Manager of Nan Hua Temple, who made the graduates aware of two important things in life, knowledge and attitude. He stressed that none of these important items in life can stand on its own. A successful life for any person is not a subject of luck, but rather the combining of knowledge and positive mental attitude towards whatever the person has decided to do.
He wished the graduates best of health and opportunities and invited the graduates to come and visit the temple in the future, to bring successful stories of their lives, so
that others can learn and be inspired by them.
