There are so many functions held in our school. But the prize distribution function of our school is unique. The whole machinery of our school is put to its fullest power.
This year the prize distribution function of our school took place on the 20th of February. The Director of School had very kindly consented to preside over the function.
The whole school was swept clean and white washed. All the rooms of the school were well decorated with mottos and drawings. The school compound was decorated with pink and yellow flowers. They presented a view of a beautiful garden. The decoration of the compound held the people spell-bound. A large number of flower-pots were well arranged in every comer of the school. The school garden had an attractive look.
A big shamiana was set up in the School compound. A special dais was made for the day. Carpets were spread over it. It was also decorated with paper buntings and flowers. On it were placed some easy chairs for the important guests. Dames were spread over the whole ground for students. All the students were in their school uniform. Every teacher was alert to his duty given to him.
Exactly at 3 P.M. the Director of Schools arrived in a car. He was received at the main gate by the Principal and the teachers. A guard of honour was given to him by the Scouts. The Inspector had a round of the school. He was pleased to see the paintings of the young children. As he came to the dais, he was cheered by the students and the guests. He was garlanded by the Principal.
The programme began. The mass drill of the boys of class VI was splendid. The Scouts gave a show of drill which everybody liked. The fancy dress made people laugh again and again. Tit bits, stories, speeches and songs had a great effect on the onlookers.
The Principal then read out his report. The school had marched ahead with great success. The secondary results were brilliant. The school had won a name in games also.
The Director was then requested to give away the prizes which he did in a nice way.
The Director, in his short speech, congratulated the Principal, the staff and the boys on the wonderful success their school had made. The function came to a close with the singing of National Anthem.
