The day I was disengaged from my school for appearing in the Senior Secondary Examination, would be remembered by me throughout my life. As your way the outgoing class, it was given a farewell by the students of class XI. Farewell party was given on Sunday
When I arrived at the school at 3 p.m. I saw that all arrangements had been made by the host students The school hall was beautifully decorated with charts posters, flowers and placards. The main table on which the principal and the chairman of the school were to be seated, was beautifully decorated with flowers photo There were many chairs for the outgoing students, staff and the students of class XI.
The party began at 4 p.m. For about one hour ate to your heart’s content, chatted and laughed without restrictions. The party came to an end at 5 p.m. The farewell function started after the party was over. Mr Anthony D’Souza, a student of class XI, made an emotional farewell speech in which he mentioned our long and deep association with the school as well as with his class. His speech, which was full of praise and appreciation for our outgoing class, was delivered in a befitting manner. His farewell speech was punctuated with humorous remarks and pleasantries. Anthony also prayed for our successful future. His presentation and theme were very touching.
After his speech, I, on behalf of my class, thanked the host students and got blessings from my teachers and the honourable principal. In my speech, I lauded the good arrangements made by the hosts and accepted their good wishes and feelings for all of us. While delivering the speech, I was experiencing a mixed feeling. I was feeling happy because I was on the verge of completing my school life successfully and was also sad because of the separation from the institution in
whose lap I had obtained education and training of my mind and body. For me, my school was an embodiment of knowledge and learning, whose sacred atmosphere would always be part of my memory. For me, this was not merely a school that imparted knowledge but a cradle of decent culture and civilisation.

In the end, the principal whose association with the school is as old as the history of our school, made an impassioned speech. In his farewell message, he gave us some pieces of advice, to be followed by us throughout our lives. He made a fervent appeal to build mind and character on sound lines. He stressed upon us to inculcate a spirit of service and sacrifice as well as of patriotism and nationalism. After his encouraging speech, the function came to end.
We parted after taking the blessings of our teachers and good wishes of our friends. While leaving, we felt sad. We shall always be grateful to our institution where we spent the most formative period of our lives. I miss my school a lot and often give it a visit when I feel too nostalgic.
