Ladies and gentlemen,
Handphones, mobile phones, and tablets are becoming common in almost everywhere in our society, even now, small children have it too. Today, It has become a must have item to everyone. Even now, If I ask the audience, whether they have a handphone, probably almost all will say yes, isn't? Well, as for now this question exclude the students, because students are still prohibited to bring handphone to school, but if students are allow to bring handphone, most probably, all the audience in this hall, will say yes. But then, is it a good idea to allow students to bring handphone to school ? In every story, there are two sides of contracting ideas, therefore, I would like to take this opportunity, to let the audiences know the advantages and disadvantages of allowing students to bring handphone to school.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let me start my speech by stating the first advantages of student bring phone to school that is, to make communication easier, especially between parents and their children. It will allow them to communicate with each other at any time. In the past, parents often never knew where their children were until they came home. With handphone, parents can check up on their kids and arrange transportation or relay important information if necessary at any time they want. Like for example, the children can tell their parents what are their activities and thus make the parents less worry about their children whereabouts.
Secondly handphones can be an invaluable tool in emergency situations. For instance, if a student is severely injured or there is a crisis situation, the phones can allow students to contact authorities or anyone for help. Thirdly, with the technology available, it can help the students to learn more. More easy access to internet, students can search information on the internet easily. But it could also be the other way around. Students use the internet to find fun instead of studying. Now, I will focus on the disadvantages of student bring phone to school. Firstly is about theft issue. With more and more attractive phones available, there are good chances of phone being snatch or theft. This happen because some pupils might not be able to afford it, thus, the only way for them to have it, is by steal it. Students also can make extra money too by stealing the handphone and sell it. Moreover, students can at times be clumsy when keeping their things. We all know that once the item is gone, it will be gone forever. The price of handphone is not cheap, and when the theft issue arise, it can cause a lot of other trouble. Secondly, the phone can may cause distraction in lessons. Some students that did not shut off their phone and suddenly get a phone call, will disturb the lesson in the class. They can also play games in hiding during the lesson. With so many students in the class, teacher could overlooked these students. This is one of the instances of students misuse the purpose of handphone. By bringing handphone to school also will hinder pupils to study more as they are much more prefer to play games than to read book. They only used the privilege given for their own joy only. Thus, the passion for learning for many students will be decreasing and this is bad because study is important in life. Only With more knowledge we could be more developed, but if these young generation do not like to study, it will hinder our progress to be more successful. Ladies and Gentleman,
I have line out the pros and cons of allowing students to bring handphone to school. Now, it is up to us to decide and choose what is the best decision on this issue. Well then, I arrived at the end of my speech, and thus I would like to thank all for lending your ears. Therefore, I end my speech with thank you very much and good bye. Thank you.
