Personally, I feel that this year’s Speech Gala is extraordinarily special because I finally had the chance to meet Miss Tavares after over a decade since I last met her in HKU where I completed my teaching diploma. Miss Tavares was my teacher and mentor. Her professionalism, cheerfulness and positiveness have been staying in my mind. She carried on with all these precious qualities to my school and appreciated and supported our boys to the fullest. Seeing her at work made me feel like a student all over again!
While the Gala gives all the boys equal opportunity to take part in the learning and training of the language arts materials, I am surprised every time by the different ways the finalists employ on stage to give a distinctively new life to the piece they perform. So much effort and innovation is shown year after year!
I congratulate all participants in the finals and thank all my English Teaching teammates for making the event educational and entertaining again.
I am already looking forward to witnessing the next Speech Gala!
