There are different disadvantages about dating in secondary school. One of the disadvantages is that family members and friends will be ignored because you concentrate in your dating. You cannot share what you think with them and your relationship will become less close. So, more argued may happen at same time. Another disadvantage is that it may be affect your exam result since you have spent a lot of time on dating. It is because if you are dating during exam or test, being your result will absolutely be bad. It will easily hurt and let you down. Because the love is not just like any fairy tale, and you will fall in love quickly. But, if you end a relationship with your boyfriend, you will get in blue and cannot work wherever or study. So it must are affect your school life and study.

Another advantage is that your life will not be so boring because love can lead our life. You can have more positive power to work hard in your studying and find your target about the future if you have boyfriends or girlfriends. If your boy or girlfriend is a good student, it will give you an impact such as study together and work together. It can make you have more confident for teenagers because their girl or boyfriend will give support to them.
There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages for dating at secondary school; I think if you can balance it well, you can handle for the dating. I think you can date at secondary school.

Good morning everyone!!!!! Before I start my speech, I want to ask you a question, do you agree that money represent everything include our life or study?

Love includes the love of family, friends or even lovers. Let me give you an example. The characters of some people are bad, they don’t have any friends, so they use the money to their classmates for exchanging the friendship, but this behavior is bad. Although they have friends to play in the leisure, the friendship is not the truth. The friendship between them is only a trade. Will you be happy for this kind of ‘friendship’? We can divide this word into two part.. They are “friend” and “ship” . This is a kind of love that is trading by ship between our friends.

Let me introduce other example. In the 8 magnitude earthquake in Sichuan which occurred in 12 May 2008, this accident led to about 70 thousands people died. Many people loss their families , friends. Could we pay for their families or friends back? Because of love, the Hong Kong people donate much money to help the people in Sichuan to build up their homes. If we don’t have love, we won’t do that , aren’t we?

In conclusion , Although money can fulfil your physical needs , but it is not represent that money is greater than love . Love is around us, the difference is our mindset. Love is the greatest power in the world . If we don’t have love , our life is full of darkness. Finally,I hope that you all can find out the truth of love.

This is the end of our speech.Thank you!

Good morning everyone,

Firstly, before I start my speech, I want to ask everyone some questions: What is
your feeling of dating in H.T.Y.C.? Do you think there have some advantages and
disadvantages of dating at school?

Today, my topic is “The advantages and disadvantages of dating at secondary
school”. I want to share a poem: There had a couple; the girl is 14-year old. The boy didn’t like her anymore because he likes the other girl. When the girl who is 14-year old knew that, she was so upset. After that, she went home and jumped off from the building and died! At this moment, except you Ms Betty, everyone is the students in this secondary school! For me, I think dating is not acceptable when we just a secondary school student! Because when we were having dating in secondary school, we may not care about the study at school anymore. You may just thinking when you will go to the cinema, watch the new movies with your couple after the lessons; when will you go to play with your boyfriend/girlfriend! Perhaps, you will think that, I’m just playing a game, it‘s not so important! I’m just a 14 years old student, I’m steal young! It‘s none of anybody else’s business! However, have you thought that when
you are dating in secondary school, do you have enough qualifications to your life in
the future?

Besides, at school, we need friends, but I’m not talking dating. We can also have
fun even though we are a boy or a girl. I’m a good example, I ‘m not just have good friends with the boys, my best friend who are the a girl! Although there have a lot of
disadvantages of dating at secondary school, there have some advantages! What do you guys think? We need to do a lot of projects, a lot of quizzes, dictations etc. Sometimes, we need to do the homework until midnight! So, you want to have a good friend to talk to. We dating in secondary school, we can gain the experience of love. You can learn from the dating, what do think so?

At last, I want to share a poem which was written by me: Dating, Couple Dating, Love Dating? Hate Dating? Oh! It’s none of our business now! Isn’t it? That’s all for my speech, thank you!
