Head Boy and Head Girl
From our Head Girl Candy Deng
First of all, I would like to thank all the teachers and students for giving me this opportunity; I would not be able to stand here today as the Head Girl of GOS without the support from you. It is also a great honor for me to take up this role. Acting as the leaders of the Student Council and role models for the school is definitely a challenging task for us, but I am certain that we will always try our best in order to make GOS a better place for everyone in this community. We will never give up no matter how difficult the task is, because we know that we have this responsibility to show the younger students what we should do when facing difficulties.
As the Head Girl, I believe we must continue with or surpass the high standard that the previous heads had set. As a team, our goal for this year is to use our actions to show you that all the ‘dreams’ and promises—proms, trips, and a lot more—will eventually come true if we put in hard work, so together we can make our school a more colorful and content place! Please don’t hesitate to find us if you have any problem or idea. One of our jobs is to hear from you guys: this is what we are here for, and this is what Student Council is here for. I am looking forward to hearing from you and work with you!
Deputy Head Girl Tiffany Lim
I feel privileged and very grateful to have been given the role of Deputy Head Girl. I want to say that GOS is a school that gives students lots of opportunities and support, and I would like to thank all the teachers who have given me this opportunity, and all the students supported me. As I am a Korean, I can’t speak Chinese fluently, but I will try my best to hear from you, understand you, and bridge the gap between school and students!
I am excited for what the next few months will bring, and I hope to fulfill my role as Deputy Head Girl with much enthusiasm. Helen Keller said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched-they must be felt with the heart”; my aim is to fill the school with love and happiness, to make the school a better place, to be a more beautiful school. However, this cannot be done by the four Heads or Student Council only. We have to work as a team, the four Heads, the Student Council, and all the students in Green Oasis School. So, never be afraid to suggest any ideas to us! This is why we are here. We look forward to hearing from you; your ideas and suggestions, and let’s work together to make them happen!
From our Head Boy
In January this year, I travelled to many classes in school— meeting people, delivering speeches, collecting opinions, pinning up posters, airing videos… in a campaign to gain the support of the secondary students of GOS in trusting me with the position of Head Boy. In those speeches, interactions, posters, and videos; I told the students of GOS of my dream, or rather, our dream, a common dream that I share with many students at this school: we dreamt of change and improvement— that there can be more activities for students in this school, that greater considerations can be placed upon the opinions of students when decisions are made in this school, and that students could gain certain benefits in this school.
I will never forget, that it was because of this common dream, and the hope and prospect of it coming true, that the students of GOS decided to elect me as Head Boy. Therefore, first of all I must give my greatest thanks to those who supported me, for their trust in me to lead the Student Council and to fulfill this common dream of all GOS students, without your support I would not be able to deliver this message here and now as the Head Boy. Secondly, it should be my duty to not disappoint such trust and support, and I will put in all my effort to achieve this common dream of all GOS students—to organize more activities and school events with the Student Council; to ask management for more student rights and benefits; and, if anybody has any suggestions, opinions or problems, please do not hesitate to discuss this with me or the other Heads, it has always been our pleasure to work with you……It is our dream, and our duty, to improve the school and make it better. Already, a lot has been done and a lot is being done. Here is my callout to you, to every single student of GOS: let’s add to those efforts, let’s work together to make GOS the best it has ever been!!!
