Sample speech for school / college farewell party

Good evening to our beloved principal, wonderful teachers and my dear friends.

Today, we have gathered here for saying 'goodbye' to our dear schoolmates and dear teachers. I feel great to express my views and share my experiences on this memorable occasion which is a blend of joyous and sad moments,

I still remember my first day (here you can mention the year / class) in the school. I was holding my mom's hands tightly with scary looks in my eyes. (You can mention this point, if you joined the primary class). Everything seemed new to me, new teachers, new classmates, new ayahs - a completely new and different world. My mind was full of doubts - Are the teachers here too strict? Do they shout and punish me for each and every small mistakes of mine? Can I make good friends here? Will my classmates / schoolmates, tease me and pull my legs? Can I adjust myself to this new ambiance?

Many such doubts cropped up in my mind and I was a bit hesitant to walk into the classroom when my mom took me to the classroom, introduced herself and me as well to the teacher who was in the class. I still remember the warmth in the teacher's face who welcomed me with a friendly smile.

I don't even know how the days rolled by and I gradually developed a strong attachment with the school, my friends, friendly and ever-helping teachers who tolerated all our mischievous acts. All our mischievous things, teasing, silly jokes on some of our teachers, stealing lunch boxes, fighting on petty issues and lot more such silly yet memorable acts are hidden deep in my heart and perhaps in the hearts of every out-going student present here. Though our hearts are heavy for departing our beloved school yet we take happy / cherished memories with us which will be treasured deep in our hearts. The memories are countless.

I take this opportunity to thank our beloved Principal who had been very strict yet guided us in a friendly manner. I extend my heartfelt and sincere thanks to each and every teacher who gave us great inspiration, motivation and above all good encouragement. I once again thank our teachers who provided the right direction to gain knowledge and shape our future. I know that ours is the naughtiest batch and many a times we got scoldings and had punishment from teachers and principal. But still we have great respect and love for you. There was warmth in your scoldings and you punished us only to put us in the right path.

Friends, lets say goodbye to our beloved gurus and the school. We are in the turning point of our life and we all will be moving in different paths. Friends, let's be in continuous touch with each other through FB and other social networking sites. Let's choose the right path / career in our life, become successful and responsive citizens and bring glory to our beloved school / nation.

Thank you all and wish you all good luck for the forthcoming board exams!

Have a wonderful time ahead!
