A special farewell program

Today was a special day! Although the rain greeted us in the morning, it turned out to be a sunny day. We kept our morning class schedule, helping the students with pronunciation of nursing terms and health questions asked at a visit to the doctor’s office. After our class was over, some of us were given a tour of the campus which included the sports field, communication center, dormitories, and cafeteria.

It was a special day because a farewell program was held in a big assembly hall. It was also the last day of school for the week because of the Autumn Festival celebration. The Global Volunteers trio was introduced and each of us had to make a brief introduction of ourselves. After that it was questions and answer time, followed by talent performances of dancing and singing by some students. Julia and Baoli joined the trio in singing “What Aloha means.” The Urghur students got up to do their native dance and pulled us up to dance with them. It was fun! What a grand way to end our service adventure.

Before we left the college campus, the college president presented each of us a Chinese Scroll – a picture taken from the wall of an ancient cave - and a Chinese Poem. Mahalo Nui Loa to all!
