    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!

    Good afternoon everyone. Today it is my turn to say goodbye. First of all, please let me show my appreciation for Avalon College. Thanks to Mrs Ashton, Mrs Ed and Mrs Birchall for teaching me English. Whenever I ask questions you always listen patiently, explain things clearly to me and encourage me and give me confidence. Thanks to the Avalon Staff for caring for me so much.
    What's more, I need to thank Jasper because he made me not afraid of any dogs. He was the first dog that I touched be myself. Thanks to Mr Parkin who is pretty wise, I learnt many things from the conversations between us. I experienced a lot in Avalon College that were both positive and negative, but I am sure they were all beneficial for me. I became a stronger, more independent and a more mature person. Again, I appreciate Avalon College from the bottom of my heart. I'll bring all the precious memories with me and see you in the future. Wish you all the good luck.
    Thank You!
