I’d like to say “Good Luck” to people who are leaving and say “keep fighting” to the people who are still here. My friends, don’t waste your time! At Last, I hope I’ll not get detentions for the rest of my Avalon Life. Thank You.
Although I’m not leaving this weekend, I’m giving a speech here. First of all, it is such a pleasure being at Avalon College in which people make me very happy in my early overseas study life.
On my first day I came to Avalon College, I didn’t understand what Mr Parkin was saying to me. I didn’t recognise why people were finishing their first meal and then went to the kitchen and filled their bowls again. Now, I know this was called “Seconds”. I also couldn’t hear clearly what the teachers were talking about. I thought the people around me, people in my class were smarter than me. That is the cause of my worst habit thinking to myself that “this is hopeless!”
Gradually, I’ve found out that everyone is friendly here. We can help each other and support each other as a big family. At the beginning I didn’t do very well, Even though my teacher, Mrs Ashton, often encouraged me. Ms Ed always told me what my weaknesses were and in which way I could get over it. Mrs Birchell also gave me a lot of help about my writing and reading.
I think I’ve got thousands and thousands of “thanks” to say, but the time is limited. Anyway, Ive learnt a lot from here, especially Mr Parkin who has given me three morning detentions and two running detentions exactly when I thought I would never ever be punished till my departure. Thanks Mrs Akila who cooked lots of delicious food for us and Ms Tamara who took care of me several times.
