Dear Principal, teachers and fellow schoolmates,

I am Ivan Leung from form 4B. Today I am going to give you a speech about ‘Star Wars’. ‘Star Wars’ is one of my most favorite movie series of all time.

The character I admire the most is Anakin Skywalker. He is the “Chosen One “ in the ancient saying, who would bring balance to the force, and he was discovered by Qui-gon Jinn, a Jedi master, and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, at Tatooine. They want to bring Anakin back to the Jedi temple, but unfortunately, Qui-gon was killed by Darth Maul, a sith. Obi-wan then trained Anakin and when he completed his training, he then trained Ashoka Tano as to complete his way to become a Jedi master. But, chancellor Palpatine, the president of the republic, also a sith lord, declared himself as an emperor, decided to get Anakin to his side, and Anakin then declared Palpatine as his dark side master. He then hunt down Jedi alive, and his former master, and the Jedi high master, Yoda survived this attack. They trained Anakin’s son as a Jedi, and beat down Anakin in episode 6. Anakin was dead in Death star II, during the battle of Endor.

I am now looking forward to the new Star Wars VII as there are new sith lord and the formation of the new republic and the dawn of the empire. It will be in theatres in mid-December.

May the Force be with you!

Thank you.

Good morning everyone. Today, I am going to talk about an event of celebration called the Bonfire Night.

Bonfire Night is a name given to various annual celebrations characterised by bonfires and fireworks. The event celebrates different traditions on different dates, depending on the country. Some of the most popular instances include Guy Fawkes Night (5 November) in Great Britain, which is also celebrated in some Commonwealth countries; Several other cultures also include night-time celebrations involving bonfires and fireworks.

There are many food items that are associated with Bonfire Night. Toffee apples, treacle toffee, black peas, and parkin are traditionally eaten around Bonfire Night in parts of England. They are extremely delicious and many people love eating them.

However, bonfire celebrations can pose a risk to public safety due to the possibility of fires, injuries, or fights. For example, in London, calls to firefighting services are nearly tripled on Bonfire Night.

Moreover, the tradition of Bonfire Night has been criticised for its environmental impact. A 1994 study conducted in Oxford, England, found a four-fold increase in toxins in the air after a Bonfire Night celebration. In 2005 a Bonfire Night in Newfoundland prompted the provincial Minister of Environment and Conservation to remind the general public of their responsibilities for safety and the environment.

Bonfire Night is amusing but it is really dangerous. If you have a chance to participate in this event, you should have fun carefully.
