A Fair Well Party

In every school there is a tradition that the junior students give a farewell party to the senior outgoing students. In this way in a higher secondary school every year the students of class IX give a farewell party to the X class students who are departing for their board examination. This day is definitely a sad day for those who are leaving. But at the same time it is full of hopes because they are now going to achieve their mission for which they had joined the school years ago. On this day both the students and the teachers give emotional and touching speeches at the farewell party. The voice of the speakers is choked. The students ask for forgiveness if they had been rude to their teachers during their stay in the school. The teachers bless them and wish them a good and bright career in the future. It is the day when a relationship which has been established over a period of nearly 12 years is snapped suddenly. The students take away the sweet memories of their school. Last year I had to appear at the secondary school examination in March. Our Principal gave us preparatory holidays for nearly two weeks in February. He also announced that the farewell function for the outgoing students would be organized on 15th of February. So it was my last day at the school where I had studied for nearly 10 years. The function was to be organized by the students of IX class under the supervision of our vice principal. We reached the school at 10:00 am. The function was to start at 10:30 am. We had been asked to reach the school half an hour before the actual time. The students of the class IX had beautifully decorated the school with buntings and balloons. In the school a small stage had also been erected. On the stage were our honourable principal vice principal and other members of the staff. Few items of cultural programe like songs ghazals jokes etc. were arranged. There were certain students both in class IX and X who give us good and touching songs. Some students also recited poems and couples befitting the occasion. The cultural programme which was organized for the entertainment of the students and guests was a great success. After the cultural program was over the monitory of class IX rose and gave a touching farewell speech with the permission of the chair. After this the monitor of our class also made a brief speech on behalf of the outgoing students which was also very moving. After this our respectable teachers by whom we were taught blessed us one by one They also gave brief speeches. In the end our principal gave us his blessings in an inspiring and memorable speech. He advised us to lead a disciplined and honest life. He also wished us succeed in our future career. All the students clapped when he finished his speech. After the end of the principal's speech we were served with tea biscuits cakes and fruits. It was a fine party which was liked by every one
