The season of goodbyes is here. Most of us will be done with our final papers and exams and will be raring to return to our home sweet home. So where does the question of making a ‘new beginning’ arise? All of us learn something new at every point in our lives. It is the end of the hall term but the world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.

Many will be returning home for a short break to rejuvenate themselves, while some will be going back home after an exchange experience, then there will be a few going for their own exchange experience abroad. Doesn’t this signify a new beginning for everyone? During this process of ‘moving out’ from our rooms, we might be faced with the dilemma of choosing what to keep and what to discard.

Local students: We urge you to keep in mind that some things which may be useless for you might be of great use to the underprivileged. So donate these items in the donation box. There is a recycling collection box for used items in good condition in the covered area between JC Academy Hall and Chan Sui Kau Hall. It may make a difference to someone else’s life! Do not hoard but DONATE!

Non-locals going on exchange: We suggest that you box all the essential items properly and ask your local friends to keep them safely in their rooms or use the storage services provided by CSSA. Do NOT box the important documents! Make sure they’re with you.  You’ll need them.

Exchange students: You may not be able to squeeze the whole room into a couple of bags but we hope that you can keep all the lovely memories with you. After all you don’t have to worry about the weight limit or the excess baggage when you ‘store’ in your memory =)

Even though it is good-bye time, ResLink would like to state that, “We shouldn’t be sad because we’re saying goodbye, we should be happy because we have memories that we’ll cherish forever.” We wish you Good Luck for the new beginning!
