On the afternoon of December 15, Lanzhou No.16 Middle School was crowded with people, and music, loud reading and applause came in bursts. "I left gently, just as I came gently..." Zhang Yu, secretary-general of Gansu Recitation Association, recited Farewell to Cambridge, which conveyed the feeling of farewell perfectly. "This land so rich in beauty has made countless heroes bow in homage." Bian Cheng, honorary president of Gansu Recitation Association, recited Mao Zedong's “Qinyuanchun· Snow” with strong emotion, and won bursts of applause from teachers and students.
Teachers in Lanzhou No.16 Middle School recited "Love Lotus", "Gift", "Drinking with Li He", "Life is like Summer Flower", and students and parents recited "Gathering in Pomegranate Garden, Reading and Growing Together", to eulogize famous articles, tell stories about ancient heroes, and express their gratitude.
