Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. After listening to other students speeches, eventually I found that it became my turn to do my speech. I have already been here for 21 weeks. Although this is not a very long time, I have improved my English skills a lot.
Firstly, I want to thank Mrs Ashton, Mrs Ed, Mrs Grey and Ms Wong. You have been very patient to answer all my questions and worries.
Secondly, I want to say thank you to all of the boarding house staff. You helped me to adjust to the environment when I first came here, Thank you so much. Especially, I want to say thank you to Mr Parkin. Even though you have been very strict to us. I still remember the time when I was upset because of my report, you comforted me and told me that this was not the end.
Thirdly, I want to thank all my roommates. You guys have been very nice and always listened and helped me to make better friends through communication. I won't forget every day that we spent together. You friends that I can always rely on. Please remember that you will always be my best friends.
Moreover, I want to thank Mrs Akila for cooking delicious meals for us.
I will always treasure these remarkable and precious memories at my new school. Hope all of you will have a happy school life. See you soon and thank you

Geelong is a peaceful and picturesque place. There’s vivid blue seas, bright meadows and clean air. You can also see beautiful stars up in the sky at night. The environment here is magnificent and spectacular. Every international student will absolutely enjoy life studying in Geelong.
There are a number of grad schools to choose from; such as Geelong Grammar School and Geelong College. I believe that international students can benefit from the education provided in these schools and graduate as remarkable people.
There are many shopping centres and restaurants in Geelong. International students will find it easy to shop for what they need and look for food that they like. Life is extremely relaxing and enjoyable here.
I would recommend Geelong to future international students.
Geelong is a suburb that is advanced in education area. There are also several excellent high school which located in Geelong. The teachers are professional and experienced. The school also has cultural history. Take Geelong Grammar School as an example. The school is successful and helps hundreds of international students get a satisfied grade in VCE and IB.
The schools at Geelong also had a good communication with the international student’s family. It also builds up a co-operative system in helping us, which was effective and significant to protect our safety and personal rights.
I first heard about Geelong when I decided to further my study in Australia. An online agency strongly suggested that I could come to Geelong to study. The advantage of the education at Geelong sounds exactly like what I expected. Thus, I came here to further my study.
One reason that pushes me to come to Australia for study is that compares with China, the education at Australia is more suitable to me. From where I'm, standing, we need passion and effort to enhance ourselves. That's why I chose Geelong.
