2020年，又一届园外毕业生将从这里走向世界，他们将秉承“诚心勤勉，学用四海”的校训，做敢于面对问题、有能力解决问题的人！ 我们坚信，分离之后定会相聚，风雨之后必有晴空！ 祝愿全体毕业生一帆风顺、前程似锦！
In 2020, another class of graduates from SIPFLS will go into the world from here. They will adhere to the school motto to be sincere and diligent and to learn from all corners of the world. We hope that the graduates will become individuals who dare to face problems and have the ability to solve them. We firmly believe that there will be reunion after separation, and there will be sunshine after wind and rain! We wish all graduates bon voyage and have a bright future.
