Through our constant encouragement and students' great effort, we are pleased to see the big improvement and outstanding achievements of our students in different local and and international competitions. What we encourage and matter is not the rank or title that they got. What we emphasize is the students gaining confidence and getting improved more completely through different challenges. The good thing is to open our visions to learn from each others' art.
