A New Head Teacher's Address to His Class
My dear fellow boys and girls, my friends,
When I stand before the teacher's desk, or, I would rather say when I stand on the stage, it seems to me that the purple curtains of both sides are drawing open gently. And on this occasion a play full of vigor is on its way. To my extreme happiness, you all, Class Two of Senior Grade One will perform the play who, I think, will be loyal to your performers each. The play may be one of the longest plays in the world, because it will last three years till your whole period of senior grade.
Because of all these, I would like to be a warm-hearted announcer. I would like to take the opportunity to declare that the play by Class Two Senior Grade One begins.
Above all, I think, as a head teacher of your class, I should be a well-qualified director. I am eager to direct plays full with modern atmosphere. The key tune will be unity, intentness, earnestness and liveliness. The main contents will be comprehension, friendship and love each other, pioneering and creativity. The main story will be the love of collective and collective of love. As a director, I will carefully design attractive plots, typical characters and striking stories for all of you. Now today every one of you present shows us your own brilliance as you can.
The stage belongs to you. Of course you are the leading roles. I will be willing to be a supporting actor and try what I can to serve you all. I will share the enjoyment of your success silently.
Moreover, I will be willing to be a pious audience who would like to smile, tear, and applause for your wonderful performances. I will be willing to shake hands with you all with heartfelt words: Congratulate you on your success.
When you say goodbye to your middle school life in the end in the three years and when you ascend the stage of life, you will feel greatly that what you get from the class are so valuable to you. What an unforgettable period of your life you have in the class!
After three years when our curtains of the class close, I would like to hear your remark on my work; Mr. Lie, you are our qualified director as well as a very good supporting actor, and you are still the audience we all like.
Thank you for your applause. From you applause I can see your comprehension and support, although the curtain just begins.
Let me wish to have our smooth and successful cooperation!
