speech at christmas eve by hubert zhai
ladies and gentlemen, good evening!
tonight, we are meeting here to celebrate this special, peaceful, silent and holly night. here and now, allow me，on behalf of all the members of the school committee, to express my hearty regards and seasonal greetings to all of you. merry christmas and happy new year!
and i am very glad to tell you that we have two distinguished guests from england to join us tonight to celebrate this special christmas eve with us together. this is because christmas eve has the same meaning of safe and peace with ping an in chinese. just as the chinese saying goes, “safe and peace is fortune and luck”. so i’d like to extend my best wishes of fortune and luck to everyone here and those you love as well as those who are now still working in their posts.
christmas is a time to give thanks, so let’s give our hearty thanks to our parents, our teachers, those around us as well as our great motherland with our sincerity, loyalty, intelligence and diligence.
my dear boys and girls, the mid-term examination is over, and all the students in our school did very well this time. since the examination, many students are working harder than ever before, and they are becoming more active in class. especially through english corner, they’re getting to understand the importance of learning english. meanwhile, i hope every student in our school will take an active part in learning english and using english, and enjoy english.
