Good afternoon everyone. I am sorry to disturb your lovely lunch. Today is my turn to do a speech and the time I must leave Avalon College. Although I have only stayed in Avalon College for ten weeks, I received plenty of knowledge about English and Boarding Life.
During this ten weeks, there are many people who I should appreciate. Firstly, I am grateful to my teachers who taught me a variety of English skills. Furthermore, I am thankful to the staff who restrain our negative lifestyle. Thank you to the cook who made delicious food. Last but not least, I appreciate all my friends. You are the priceless treasure and never made me feel lonely.
Tomorrow I will take all the valuable memories and start my new study life in Ruyton Girls' School. Hope to see you again.

Hello everyone. I really enjoyed this time at Avalon College. Thank you to every teacher that has taught me, especially Ms Jones for making our class more fun and interesting. Ms Jones, I will always remember your evil laugh and you crazy dance which you always performed in class. Thank you to all the students in Avalon when I am sad because they always cheer me up. Thank you Mrs Akila for your food, it always will cheer me up especially seconds. Thank you BHS staff and Mr Parkin for taking care of me. Thanks to all of you. Bye Bye.

Good afternoon my friends. Although I’m leaving this weekend, I’m doing my speech now. Surely, I will miss these days in Avalon College. I won’t forget you, my friends. However, we will keep in touch, so there is nothing to feel sad about.
Before I came to Avalon College, I thought the life in Avalon College would be so hard and difficult, because the bush around was like Africa. Nothing around Avalon College, but only might feel like a military camp. I though the life would be like a sailor’s training. But after I came to Avalon College, I found out that I was wrong. This is a lovely place. Avalon College is like a watermelon. It looks tough on the outside, but it is sweet on the inside.
My friends, we are all going to a new school, a place where all the people speak English, but not our own language. We have to try hard, work hard and fight for ourselves. I wish you all the best, my friends.
Jordan, I won’t forget your breathtaking version of “Hotel California” as a violin solo. Feng, I won’t forget that you invited me to play piano. Mr Paull, I won’t forget jamming with you on songs and singing with you guys. Tommy, I won’t forget that you shared metal music with me. I also won’t forget singing with Lancelot and Jerry, listening to Dew play the guitar. In fact, I enjoyed making music and sharing music with all of you. It’s my pleasure and I deeply appreciate your talents. Keep Going! Don’t give up!!!!
Lastly, I would like to thank all of the staff and teachers in Avalon College. Also, I want to thank our lovely cook Mrs Akila. I want to apologise for being late for slush, and for sleeping in class. That’s all. Thank you, my friends.
