Dear Shenmo students at home and abroad:
Today is June 1st, the International Children's Day. I am very happy to say something to you on this special day. Wish you a joyful holiday!
At this moment, maybe you are together with your family, maybe you are playing with your friends, maybe you are immersed in your "small world". Children's Day is yours. I hope you can be particularly happy on this day of the year.
Currently, in China and around the world, our lives are still affected by the coronavirus. You may have adapted to wearing masks and have developed better hygiene habits. The virus is not terrible, and the epidemic will eventually pass. This special experience will make each of us stronger. Whenever we think of your bright smile, our hearts will be warmer and more powerful.
In the past few days, the First "Shenmo Cup" International Little Scholars Online Abacus Mental Math Competition was successfully held. There will also hold a grand online award ceremony today. During the competition, we were very proud to see every one of you from different countries who was focused and confident in the competition. Abacus mental math has no borders, so do love and friendship. I hope you can grow up and elevate yourselves happily in Shenmo Schools.
In Shenmo, every child is a shining star.
I look forward to seeing you shining, and look forward to meeting you soon!
Your "Big Friend"
