Dear Miss Chu, Principal, Vice-principal, teachers, fellow schoolmates and all of our guests,

Good morning. It is my pleasure to welcome our special guest Miss Linda Chu, the chairperson of the New Life Group, and all of you to our annual Cultural Festival.

The Cultural Festival is a meaningful event because it not only provides a platform for different talents but also promotes arts activities and social inclusion in our society.

All money raised during the festival will go to the New Life Group to help people with hearing problems.

The New Life Group is a non-profit organisation based in Hong Kong. It promotes a socially-inclusive society for the disabled. For example, it provides training for the hearing disabled so that they can work in restaurants and provide catering services.

Today and tomorrow, you can play at our game booths, watch a musical, a play or a puppet show, and listen to Body:

Put further details about the event and all the relevant information in a few paragraphs.


Welcome everyone to the event.

Use a formal greeting.
