THE PRIZ DAY AT OUR SCHOOL
A MEMORABLE DAY OF MY SCHHOL LIFE
Introductions: The prize day is the happiest day to us in the school. It is a very happy occasion. This year the Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony of our school was held on the 2nd March. It was just the beginning of the new school session.
Preparation: In the morning of that day, we decorated the school building. The campus was cleaned the day before. A gate was constructed to welcome the visitors. A pandal was built for the ceremony. Guardian and distinguished gentlemen of the town were invited. The Deputy Director of Public Instruction was requested to preside over the function. The Chairman of the Board of Secondary Education kindly consented to be the Chief Guest.
The Ceremony: The president and the Chief Guest came in time. The Pandal was packed to capacity. The ceremony began with an opening song. Several poems were recited by boys. After this, the Headmaster read out the Annual Report of the school. He then requested the Chief Guest to give away the prizes.
Distributions of Prizes: The President and the Chief Guest read out the names of the prize winners. They came, one by one to receive their prizes from the hands of the Chief Guest. Prizes were given for general merit, skill in games and for other reasons. It was a memorable occasion for me. I got two prizes. I got a first prize for standing first in the Annual Examination of class IX. I got the founder’s Prize for good and exemplary conduct in and outside school. This was a moment of great joy for me. My joy knew no bounds.
Speeches: The prize giving being over, the Chief Guest delivered a befitting speech. He called upon the students to be sincere and earnest in their studies. In his neat and brief speech the President praised the prize-winners and encouraged other boys to try their best to win the prizes next year. The Assistant Headmaster moved a vote of thanks.
The ceremony came to an end with the singing of the National Anthem.
