A Prize giving ceremony Paragraph: A prize-giving day is a day of great joy and enthusiasm to the students and the teachers of a school. On this occasion the school wears a festive look. On this day prizes are given to the students for their good results, attendance and their conducts, and for their special performance in various games and sports. Almost every school organises a prize day to distribute prizes among the students.
The last prize-giving ceremony of our school was held on the 25th February, 2015 in a befitting manner. The school was tastefully decorated with coloured papers, green leaves, flags and festoons and flowers. A big pandal was erected to hold the programme. A nicely carpeted platform was also made for sitting the chief guest, the president of the function and some distinguished guests. The prizes and the medals were arranged on a nicely decorated table. The chief guest’s chair and table were beautifully adorned with colourful flowers. The function was presided over by our Headteacher.
The Honourable Education Minister was the Chief Guest at the function. When he arrived at the function, the Headteacher, some senior teachers and local elites welcomed him with bouquets of flowers. The guardians and the elites of the locality also attended the programme. The volunteers with their distinctive badges were all attention to the guests.
The function began just at 10 a.m. with a recitation from the holy Quran. Then our national song was sung by some of the students. After that our Headteacher read out the annual report of the school describing the gradual progress of the school. Then the main ceremony began. The Headteacher called each recipient by name and the chief guest gave away the prizes to the winners. The winners of the awards were vigorously cheered by all. Then the chief guest delivered a short but instructive speech. He congratulated all the participants, the teachers and the students.
After that a cultural programme was arranged by the students. Some songs and recitations were performed by the students. A one-act play was also staged. All these were highly applaused by the audience.
The function came to an end with a thanks-giving speech of our Headteacher. It was quite an enjoyable day. The memory of the day is still fresh in my mind.
