    The third Wednesday of October witnessed hysteria sweeping the field when students were cheering for athletes representing their homerooms. Their eyes stationed on figures standing by at the start line of the track, leaping silhouettes over the sandpits, prominent veins on arm muscles due to tensions and weight from the shots; their ears shadowed the voices announcing results; their faces seemed to have been caught in their minds and failed to function in interactions; deep within, their adrenaline soared, heats pounded, sweats emerged in their palms. They were more intense as if they were competing in the Fifth Sports Meet instead of watching on the benches.
    本周三高中部的孩子们在赛场上为各自家庭班级的参赛健儿呐喊助威。他们的目光凝聚在一个个身影上,在起跑线前,在沙坑上,在铅球场等等,他们的耳朵追随者广播里的结果名次公布,他们全神贯注,即时你现在走上前去想和他们说话,他们也看不见你,因为他们满脑子想的都是赛场上的比赛,仿佛他们不是观战者而是参赛者。
    They thought the sunset marked the end of excitement for this day, and they were wrong.
    随着闭幕式的召开,同学们觉得这一天的兴奋,呐喊,团队协作到此结束,不禁有点伤感和怀念。但是他们想错了。
    For what they experienced in the next few hours left them with more intensified feelings, except for the fact that they were cheering for their friends in a mental wrestling, our traditional and annual Maple Leaf Cup Speech Contest.
    因为在这一天接下来的几个小时,他们观战了更为激烈的比赛,那就是枫叶每年的传统——“枫叶杯”英语演讲比赛决赛。
    With 15 contestants competing for that top one crystal trophy through presenting their original ideas followed by a live 1-minute long Q&A session. With Mr. Austen, Mr. Karamati, Ms. Woo, Ms. Madik, Mr. French, and Mr. Wickson being the judges, this finale became the highlight of the day. What else ends the day better than this? Hardly any. Once again, the whole auditorium were dead quiet from 6:30 to 8:30 because everyone else were afraid that any move or whispering may cost them their chances of listening to every single word from the contestants. Their attentions, again, left them for other adventures brought by the contestants. They were more intense as if they were delivering the addresses.
    本次决赛有高中三个年级共计14名选手参加,每位选手展示3分钟以内的原创演讲,随后评委现场提问并在1分钟之内回答,分数由演讲和回答两部分组,从内容,音量,肢体语言,语法和现场发挥各方面考察,满分25分。加方校长Mr. Austen,加方副校长Mr. Karamati,英语中心吴文飞主任,高中组组长Ms. Madik,高三英语老师Mr. French,科学老师Mr. Wickson担任评委。现场气氛跌宕起伏,掌声不断。更有中场的绕口令环节,孩子们不仅聆听了幸运观众的展示,更是在座位上跃跃欲试。更有王金英校长,易凤枝校长和李莉主任的光临让演讲现场增色不少。
    At 8:30, the finalist was crown and outstanding performers were recognized. With that, the audience left the auditorium, thinking what a great day to see both physical and mental contests today and deciding to frequent daily exercised and academic language usage.

    比赛的最后,14名选手一齐走上台,共同发出了“我们要在课堂内外多说英文”的口号,全场按照班级依次响应。最后的颁奖典礼上蒲星潼和杨婕同学摘的一等奖桂冠,梁锦珂,曾嘉奕和陈靖朗同学获得二等奖,三等奖则由邹浩宁,王子逸,曹舒雅和徐曼珂同学取得,王嘉诚,罗睿霖,张恒瑞,李汶果和彭有为同学获得优秀奖。比赛虽然结束,孩子们践行诺言的时刻则刚刚开始,让我们拭目以待吧。1.jpg
