In JJB, children are guided to be more independent, communicate bilingually, respect each other, and be polite, which will help them to adapt in the new environment.

This graduation ceremony was only the starting point for these children who will receive more certificates and go to a broader stage in the future. Some will enter the early years of international schools in Guangzhou, and some will go to public kindergartens.
