The motherland is the sea and we are the surging sprays; The motherland is the blue sky and we are the flying clouds, we snuggle tightly in your arms, unwilling to be separated for a second. The performance was concluded by Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 students singing in chorus “My Motherland and Me”, and the whole audience stood up and joined them, waving the five-star red flags and singing loudly together, bringing the atmosphere to a climax.
