PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY OF MY COLLEGE

The last prize giving ceremony of our college is still very fresh in my memory. It was held on the first week of February last year. The DC of our district had consented to preside over the occasion. We decorated our college premises with flowers and festoons. When the DC arrived he was accorded guard of honour by the BNCC of our college. The proceedings began with the holy Quran Telawat. Then our national anthem was sung when all of us kept standing up. The principal read out his annual report. He recalled the progress that had been carried through during the past years, the achievements of our present and ex-students in various fields of activity. Then the main ceremony began. The principal called each recipient of award by name, announced the subject in which the award was made and the place of honour he occupied. I got two prizes -one for my standing first in the last annual examination and the other in sports. When the prizes were awarded, the cheering crowd greeted the recipients with applause which was loud enough to be heard miles away. With the complimentary speech of the president, the function came to an end. When I remember the day I feel very happy and wish to have the day again so that I can get prizes.

Prize Giving Ceremony of Your School

The prize giving day is the most remarkable and happiest day for us in our school life. We pass the day very happily. This year the prize giving ceremony was held on the 15th of March.

In the morning of that day we were very busy to decorate the school building. The main gate was decorated with green leaves, garlands and flags. The school hall was well decorated with green leaves, coloured papers, flags, and flowers. The stage of the hall was decorated with beautiful screens. Some seats were kept reserved for the invited guests.

We, the students had to take our seats in the hall half an hour before the time. The Headmaster and the Secretary were waiting at the gate to receive the chief guest. In the mean time, many guar­dians and respectable gentlemen attended the meeting. We invited the Education Minister as the chief guest of the occasion. He came in time. The Secretary and the Headmaster of the school received him cordially. Then he was taken to his seat. He was garlanded by two fair-looking girls of class VI. The meeting started at 3 p.m. A verse from the holy Ouran was recited by a girl of class VII. Then the Headmaster read-out the annual report of the school. After this, some boys and girls recited selected poems, both in English and in Bengali. Some students sang songs. The chief guest was glad to hear all these.

Then the distribution of prizes began. The Headmaster called out the names of prize-winners one by one. The students took the prizes from the chief guest and saluted him. I got one prize for my good result. After this, the chief guest delivered a short but significant speech. Then the Headmaster ended the meeting with a vote of thanks to the chief guest and all other guests.

A prize giving ceremony is a source of great pleasure and joy. It broadens our outlook. It should be observed in all schools for the interest of the students.


THE PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY OF YOUR SCHOOL

Every year the students and teachers of our school and many respectable ladies and gentlemen including the guardians of the students assemble in the central hall / auditorium of the school building to witness the distribution of the prizes among the deserving students. It is a grand occasion for all of the students and teachers as well. This year we had such an occasion celebrating the prize giving ceremony.

 

It was in the month of February. A day was fixed for the award of these to the happy winners. We who did not win any of these were no less happy, for anything that contributed to the glory of our institution was matter of rejoicing for all us. The Inspector of the Schools himself had consented to preside out the occasion. So we set about decorating the premises, and the artists among us were soon busy mapping out the designs to be followed. Not only the winners of prizes but all students were busily engaged in decorating the building. Green leaves with numerous garlands of various colours were set all round. Gates were erected to welcome the visitors. The hall was decorated with evergreens, flags and festoons. Flower pots with bouquets of roses were placed on the table just in front of the President’s chair. The flowers and festoons artistically laid out gave a gala appearance to the whole scene. The ceremony was fixed to start at 4 P. M. By then everything was spick and span.

 

Attendance: By there-thirty the invited guests began to come in. The volunteers with their distinctive badges were all attention. They guided the distinguished guests to the seats specially reserved for them. The guardians of the students were seated in the rows allotted to them. The back seats and the side spaces were crowded by the students, who were in their merriest mood. As the seats filled up, there was a hubbub of subdued voice; men and woman talked with each other and exchanged greeting and comments.

Punctually at four the President came in. The students provided the guard of honour, and made a brave show of it. The Headmaster and the teachers conducted him to the seat of honour. A loud burst of cheering welcomed him as he took his seat, and he bowed his acknowledgments. We could see his face wreathed in smiles as he spoke to those around him.

 

The proceeding began with the singing of the national anthem. All of us standing as the solemn music rose. The Headmaster then read his report. He recounted the developments that had been carried through during the past year, the achievements of our ex-students in various fields of activity, and of our present students in their studies as well as in games and athletics. He also spoke earnestly about many difficulties which faced the institution-lack of funds, lack of building space, undesirable over-crowding in the classes, absence of opportunities to bring out the best that was in each one of us. He made a moving appeal to the Government and the public not to treat education as a subject of lesser importance than any other, for on it depended the fate of the future generations and the welfare of the country s a whole. There was a burning sincerity in his speech which went straight into the heart of the audience.

 

Then the main ceremony began. The Headmaster called each recipient by name, announced the subject in which the award was made and the place of honour occupied. The winners of the topmost award were vigorously cheered by all, while their friends shouted words of good-humoured encouragement, not unmixed with some of chaff. The sportsmen, I could see, were by far the most popular. When the colours were awarded, the cheering was loud enough to be heard for miles. It was obvious that those who cheered were no less happy than those who received the prizes and medals, for the winners were somewhat shy and ill-at-ease with the burden of new distinction, but the cheers were entirely uninhibited.

 

The distribution of prizes and medals over, the President rose to speak. He congratulated the Institution, the teachers, the students, and in fact every body on the good work done in the past year. In a very simple and impressive language he encouraged the winners of success, but at the same time warned them not to be overjoyed. He appreciated that the best was always achieved by mutual co-operation. He spoke a few words of consolation to those who could not win prizes. He advised them not to lose heart, but to make greater efforts to win them next year. He hopped that the Headmaster’s appeal for help from the people and the State would not go unheeded. He gave the students valuable advice which certainly did not fall on deaf ears. And then came the most welcome announcement: the least that he could to express his appreciation was to grant us all a day’s holiday, which we received with great joy and loud cheers. With the customary vote of thanks proposed by the senior-most teacher and seconded by the most brilliant student, and with a concluding song suited to the occasion the ceremony drew to a close. All the students of the school as well as the invited guests were treated to a light refreshment when the function was over. The cheering were tumultuous; and slowly, the evening faded into darkness, the gathering broke up and dispersed. It was quite an enjoyable evening. It will remain an unforgettable event in my life.
