Every first and last day at school has unique significance for students. The first day causes anxiety, fear and nervousness while the last is surely a day of hope, confidence and preparedness. However, nervousness and hope is common in both days. On the last day, I was happy because I was going to be free from the strict discipline of the school and sad because I was going to part from my teachers, friends and no doubt parting in life is painful. I had been a student in my school for five years. I feel for a movement that it is the last chapter of the glorious book of my student life. It was a golden period of my life which passed away like a happy movement.
Bid Farewell Party of School
The junior class students bid farewell to the outgoing class which is a good custom of our school. They arrange a parting dinner for us and bear all its expenses. They do their best to make the function remarkable. My last day at school is still fresh in my memory. I felt relaxed on one side because there was no teaching work nor home work. My heavy bag was off my back at last. It was a big relief in deed but also felt anxiety on the other hand because of parting of my friends that day.
I took the bus quite easy and got off at the school bus stop. I chatted with my fellows throughout the way. We were talking noisily and a good many grappling with one another. I reached my school in this way. The teachers and the students of high classes met in the hall after the first period. The Principal and staff sat in chairs on the stage. We, the outgoing students took our seats on dual desks.
Our juniors of ninth class hosted a farewell party and entertained us. We gathered in the main hall of our school. Our worthy headmaster and kind teachers also participated in the farewell party as usual. The students of 9th class started reading poems, sang songs and made speeches. Every item of the programme was directed towards the outgoing class. The principal rose from his seat and moved towards the rostrum. He advised us to set an aim of our lives and try to achieve it with fair means. The principal made a brief but beautiful and learning speech. He directed us to keep association with the school.
The principal explained the advantages of simple living and high thinking in details and advised us simple life. He wished us all a successful life and a bright future. The headmaster advised the students to work with devotion and be well-mannered to succeed in life.
After these the grand party took place, fruits and sweets were also served to us in large quantity and we consumed it to our fill. We embraced our juniors and thanked them for their nice farewell party before dispersing. There was a lot of fun. We left the school with mixed feelings of joy and sorrow.
