2019 NFLS New Year’s Gala
the annual lights are on
the road for the students afar to return home
and to warm you at a cold night
the fluttering hearts
when snow flakes are dancing
above 30 Beijing East Road
I believe, wherever you are going to
this beautiful moment
will forever be remembered in your mind
maybe you have forgotten the wonderful English class
maybe you have forgotten the pain in the exam failure
maybe you have forgotten the fights with your deskmate
maybe you have even forgotten your teachers’ names
but you won’t forget
this cold evening which snows just for you
then, no matter where you go
come home often, please
On December 28, 2018, the annual NFLS gala party kicked off at 17:45 as scheduled. The outdoor temperature of minus four degrees Celsius did not stop the enthusiasm of the students, who gathered early in front of the stage or the playground, waiting for the brilliant performance quietly.

The Student Union continued its traditional treasure hunt and creatively added cultural elements. The theme of this year's Art Festival is "Impression Jinling", so the design of treasure hunting was divided into six small cubes, a total of 250, scattered in every corner of the campus. Each small square emblazoned with one of the six dynasties (Wu, East Jin, Song, Qi, Liang, Chen). If you were lucky enough to find a small square in the specified area, you could get mobile phone HD head, or a warm scarf or other gifts. On campus, students can be seen everywhere with flashlights, bending and carefully looking for the cube, occasionally surprise screams could be heard when they discovered a treasure , adding lot of popularity and liveliness to the evening.
Hanging festive red lanterns are lantern guessing activities organized by the Guofeng Club and the Literary Club. The winners were rewarded with the treasure of a dynasty. At the same time, the Calligraphy Club also held writing activities on the scene in the art classroom 201 .
