it‘s my honor to have a speech here. we all know that autumn is a harvest season;it brings us achievements and celebrations. but this year is quite different. we are welcoming the 60th birthday of our nation!
what proves the growth of our country? what proves that our country is becoming stronger and stronger? of course，the changes，the avhievements.now we can touch the pulse(脈搏，跳動) of the social progress，the changes of clothing，food，the living conditions and so on. once my grandma said that in the planned economy，everything has its own certificate，“new dress” is only a desire and many children could only expect new clothes on chinese new year. when my grandmother put on new clothes on new year‘s day， she would be quite satisfied and proud， because many children would come to appreciate it. at that time， new clothes are rare for common people. sixty years ago， it’s quite usual that a big family crowded in a small room. they put up a curtain separating the house into two parts， and sometimes there might be some mice. my grandma said they played only seated in bed and several children did their homework on a small table. but now， good conditions， most families not only have a nice house with a lot of furniture， but also have more than one house. great changes have taken place gradually around us， especially after the reform and opening up. history tells us and tells future， dengxiaoping‘ construction was right. in XX， our country joined the wto. then we launched the shenzhou v， vi， vii and chang’e spaceship into space， and held the beijing olympics. we still remember the yesterday of last year， when the big earthquake happened， the whole nation was shocked and moved. not only volunteers but everyone was devoted to help people in need. today we see a new look of sichuan people， the energy and hope of sichuan people. what a beautiful day!
as students， we are enjoying the benefits of the progress of our country. now we are studying in a garden school which has experienced one hundred years of unusual history. look， the bright classrooms， the tall buildings， the green trees and these energetic students! we should work hard， for our future， for our school and for our nation. and i‘m sure that a better life and a harmonious society are around the corner. have you seen them?
