Today is the 103rd day I have been in Avalon College which isn't a long time, but they are unforgettable days in my life. In these days, Avalon College really makes me feel here is my second home. Thank you to all my friends especially my housemates who made Brown House so much fun at Night. Also, I want to thank my friend Jacky Z who always chatted with me at night. He inspired me when I was at my lowest point. Moreover, I want to thank all the staff and teachers Avalon College. I still can remember the morning staff always saying "How are we? Are we Happy today?" I can also remember the staff always making sure that we were organised before homework, and Mr Parkin who said "See me at 5 o'clock" and showed me how to do gardening.
I have been in Australia for more than half a year but the days in Avalon College are the happiest days for me. Next week I'll start High School and I'll miss all of you. I hope you will all miss me in the future. I hope you will all go to High School soon.

Ladies and gentlemen, It is time for me leave Avalon College. I came here only 7 weeks ago, but I have had many good experiences at Avalon College.
When I first came to Avalon, I thought it was a beautiful place with a great view of the Geelong City. The activities in the afternoons were very fun too. I think it is very hard to understand everything but the teachers always helped my study. Thank you to Mrs Elakis and Mr Matthews for teaching me and helping me to understand the topics they taught. Thank you Mr Paull and Mrs Drakos for taking care of me. Thank you Mr Parkin and all the other staff for not giving me any detentions while I stayed at Avalon College. Thank you Mrs Akila for cooking the delicious food for me.
I am very sad to leave Avalon College, but I promise that I will use the knowledge and experiences for the highest benefit. See you later. Good Bye!

After finishing this fantastic journey in Avalon, finally it's my turn to give a speech. The experience in Avalon was quite tough for me. I still remember my first week at Avalon College. Mrs Kay asked me to go to her office and she said "OH, Mr Ezee, I don't think you can graduate on time!" However after 6 months of hard working, I did it! I did it with the help of my teachers and staff. I'm the person who has been everyone's classmate in all the classes. So I made lots of friends and I would like to thank Mrs Grey for giving me the first grammar test on my first day. I would like to thank Mr Nontapan for playing an amusing game with us, I would like to thank Ms Jones for showing her lovely laughing and Mr Ed for being extremely helpful to me. Thank you Mrs Kay for pushing me so hard that I have to do my best every day. Thank you to all the staff that gave me so many detentions in which I finished my last one yesterday. Finally, I learned how to discipline myself.
Thank you to Mrs Akila for providing all the delicacies to include the pasta. At last, I need to say thank you to all my friends as they are the first group of friends that I made in another country. I have to treasure them.
Now I can't hesitate and I will go to my new school. But I am sure I will miss this amazing place. See you.
