Honorable teachers and dear classmates，
Today，the topic of my speech is To Be Civilized and Rational Students of Lanzhou Country Garden School.
What is civilized manner? Civilized manner is a flower carried with us which pleases you and me. Civilized manner is an olive branch stretched by us which shows our honesty. Civilized manner is a piece of mirror reflecting our souls which purifies our heart. It makes a person serious not solitary, steady not rigid, enthusiastic not arrogant, sober not dumb, gentle not conform.
Civilized manner is everywhere in our life. It is a smile when we meet on the road. It’s also a help when classmates are in trouble. It is kindness to others and greeting to seniors，also an apology from our heart. It is a silent behavior of putting garbage into bin.
Manner is showed in our daily behaviors. Dear students, please comb tidily and dress decently, have dinner elegantly and wipe mouth timely, always keep the bag and card with you, line up and walk rightfully, talk appropriately and sleep well. Only by doing these can you be a mannered lady or gentleman.
Since we put Ten Merits into practice, our school has become more and more beautiful and harmonious. Our students develop good habits gradually. However, have you ever found out anything discordant? Fences around lawns have been built to prevent treading on grass. Sign posts in the flowers have been set up to avoid fruits picked. Banners have been posted up in front of elevator's gate to remind students to line up from chaos. Tips of Keeping Silent have been posted on the door as well. What’s more, there is always leftover in the barrel after dinner and cleaners have to wipe stains over and over again. My dear students, what do you think of these behaviors? In my point of view, they are overshadowing our school.
Dear students, let’s strive to be civilized students to guard our school and build our school into a harmonious one.
Civilized manner is like a breeze to brighten people's mood. Civilized manner is like a fountain to soak our dry hearts. Here we sincerely hope that the flowers of civilization will bloom all around our school. Let’s make our school a poetic and civilized land of education which is open-minded and tolerant, green and warm!
