Recently, our school held a speech contest for grade 10 students. As if the next generation of "great orators" had been born, they demonstrated their extraordinary speaking skills.
Among the topics presented were: "How to improve self-restraint"; "The importance of future planning and goal setting", "My personal goals”, "How to do my best" and "How to get rid of bad habits". Some students’ speeches were "Patriotic ‘,whilst others exchanged "optimistic ideas"...
From the perspective of speeches, it is clear that these students are dedicated to discussions about the topics that people are familiar with. They convinced us with their clear viewpoints, inspiring ideas and structured content. Their speeches were concise, witty and fluently delivered, and they impressed us with profound and interesting topics which were easy to understand, vivid and moving.
From the perspective of knowledge, these students have developed deeper and more unique thoughts and visions, achieved through their studies at school and their observations of life experiences. In his speech, Chen Shuyu suggested reasons for student’s achievements: “We should study conscientiously, whilst at the same time seriously and carefully measure our own abilities. When learning from others, we should pay attention to our own personality. We should start from our own advantages, develop ourselves, place ourselves in the right position to set goals and grow.”
“Our country is like the sea, not a small pond. When the sea is calm, stormy days do come. A strong wind can overturn a small pond, but not the sea. After countless storms, the sea is still here, and China is still here.” Wang Da touched the audience with his moving speech and strong sense of Chinese cultural confidence.
This coincides with Yu Wenzhuoye's patriotic feelings: “We love Chinese culture and we love Chinese art. We should share the purest things with the world, so that the whole world can experience the beauty of our Chinese heritage!”
In the spirit of fairness, impartiality and openness, a number of awards were made after the competition.
These students are constantly demanding more of themselves, busy with self-improvement, and growth, and continue to possess a “red” Chinese heart. In the future, they will be the masters of Chinese and Western learning, embrace the motherland, have a world-wide vision, and a unique combination of virtue and talent!
