Student Club is one of the significant parts of our school which brings joy and diversifies school life of our students. As one part of our school culture, before winter holiday, all kinds of activities will be designed to make the fall term more colorful and create a meaningful and happy ending of the semester, such activities like Spelling Bee, Star Club election etc. For each student clubs, the big event is required for them in order to make it more challenging and enable them learn a lot through holding large scale activities. To avoid time conflicts of each club, a Club Carnival is coming to provide the whole and complete time specifically for big events.
第二天下午，国际部好声音The Voice总决赛点燃了全场的热情。六位超强实力的选手在合唱了一曲后，开始逐一对决，由四位评委打分，评选出这一季度的总冠军。大家的实力都不容小觑，每个人都有自己的特色。“音乐是心灵的迸发，对伟大的音乐来说只有一种真正的特性，那就是感情。”参赛者们让大家充分感受到了歌曲背后的情感流露，这正是他们的魅力所在。在一番激烈的比拼后，也终于产生了这一季度的总冠军：高二二班谢佳鸣（Jessica）。她的歌声十分动人，十分深沉，冠军当之无愧。赛后，她讲到：“The Voice更像是一个展示的舞台。这个舞台聚集了八一国际部最热爱音乐的一群人，他们对于音乐的热情和才华都令人尊敬。每位选手都有着自己的特点和风格，这就是The Voice如此精彩的原因。每一轮的比赛也都是一次锻炼自己的机会。正如Mrs.Temons所说，站在那么多人面前接受评价，对任何人而言都是一种挑战。非常感谢所有成员付出努力让我们能有一个展现自己的舞台。”正是这种热情，执着，坚持，才造就了如此天籁般的声音。
林偲芸：在这次活动中，让我感受到了国际部的学生们和老师们的热情和努力。不管是Drama Club的幽默戏剧表演还是The Voice的完美演唱都让我感到无比兴奋和有趣。在场的所有人都在专心地倾听着美妙的歌声，观赏着精心为我们准备的戏剧表演。在场的每一个人都在为他们喝彩，给他们加油助威。
I cannot say how much I love the ten Spartan athletes who have given their best of best on the stage in front of all audiences to prove their strongest inner selves.
I took huge proud in Rock, my greatest athlete who is featured by his ultimate toughness and will of power towards elite fitness: he did not let me down.
I am thrilled at Andrew's rocketing pace completing the WOD: he absolutely deserves the honor to conquer the game in two consecutive years and absolutely guarded the honour of the Butter Group. Same applies to Thomas. Even though he opted out halfway, I know he is still Mr. Buttefield's most proud weapon!
The most touching moments to me arised from Jessica and Neil. My eyes were moist, hands were shaking and my heart was trembling when watching they two pushing towards the limit they have never ever gone through and I have never felt sooooo relieved when seeing them completed. The constant applauses and cheers were probably the best acknowledgement of their perseverance.
Girl power was well reflected in the other young ladies Becky, Jiayi and Christy: They shocked most men onsite and place them into shame!
Despite being faced with stronger candidates, Stuart and Dennis had never showed a sign of fear and still executed to their maximum efforts. And this is exactly what we call for in GRIT!!
Through the all the amazing activities contain the toughest workout ever in Bayi ID held in the semester of the Grit club, I am dare to assert that you cannot find any looser or weak heart in this club. All you can feel in the Grit Club is the true love of physical training. As all the athletes do, I regard the activities as the most enjoyable activity during school time, because we are all clear that our efforts we paid and every sweat we dropped on the floor will definitely lead to plenty of visible improvements on both our bodies and minds. These confidences of pushing ourselves sweating more and more intense till reaching out limit is tough yet meaningful. However, the reason why we dare do this and consider no consequence is owing to our most reliable advisor---Dr. Zhu, who provided an unlimited platform for us to show our enthusiasm and prevented us from accidentally get injured. The Spartan competition was a perfect conclusion to the past semester, for which it allowed all the athletes to demonstrate their full abilities and show off their confidences in front of people.
I also think the name of Grit Club itself is the best way to show the source of our infinite energy---do everything fully gritted. The two awards were the matter of course for the attitude which Dr. Zhu and his student leader treating the every activity and club record. We actually spent lots of time and energy on the stuff like writing report and planning club events. More than that, when compare to other artistry-related clubs, the Grit Club is absolutely more capable to evoke everyone’s passion to participate into the game. The Vitality team activity held in the middle of the semester was the best example---each advisory group grouped united together to fight against each other, showing unprecedented spirit of solitary. There is also no other club event can allow all the students to truly join in the game and totally have fun.
In the end, Yumin and ROCK want to express our sincere gratitude for everyone's continuous support and love. Without you all, we will not be able to make it this far with fruitful achievementsand we are going to strive for more activities and make Grit the best club ever!
