Essay on My Last Day at School
We have joys and sorrows in life. Birthday gives us happiness while last day gives us a feeling of sorrow. We have to leave that place. It is a custom in our school that 11th class students bid farewell to the 12th class. They make the parting day joyful. They arrange a parting feast.
This year, 20th February, was my last day at school. The school bell rang as usual. The 11th class boys were sad. After the first period the teachers and the students of both classes met in the school hall. The Principal and the teachers sat in the chairs. We, they students, took our seats on the chairs.
The function was started by the students of eleventh class. They read poems. They sang songs. They made speeches suited to the occasion. Every part of the programme was about the outgoing class.
Then our class in charge stood up and made an emotional speech. It really moral us. He told us that we would soon enter the field of life. Our care-free life would end. Soon after we got our school certificates. After passing this examination we would have to face hard realities of life. He advised us to set an aim of our life and try to achieve it with fair means.
Last of all the Principal stood from his seat. There were clapping from all corners. He made a brief speech. He said that the goal of the school, that we were leaving for good, should be at the heart of every student. It was the school and its teachers that had prepared us for the struggle of life. He explained in detail the advantages of simple living and high thinking. He wished us all a successful life.
Then our monitor his thanks to all on behalf of the students. He promised on that they would keep in mind the lessons taught by the teachers. He assured the Principal and the teachers that they would never forget their school and worthy teachers. He promised to remove ignorance from villages. After these speeches the grand tea-party took place. Fruits and sweets were served in great quantities. We ate them to our fill. There was a lot of fun. At 4 p.m., we were photographed. This was the last item of the function. We left the school with feelings of joy and sorrow. We were sorry to miss the teachers. We had a feeling of sorrow because we were leaving the class fellows as well as our junior companions. All were wishing for our better future. It was a memorable day.
