English Essay/Paragraph/Speech on “Turning Over A New Leaf” for Kids and Students for Class 8, 9, 10, Class 12 and Graduation Examination

Turning Over A New Leaf

Rohit was the naughtiest boy in our class. In fact I would say that he was the naughtiest in the whole school. He always seemed to get in trouble with the prefects and teachers. The prefects avoided him and the teachers had a hard time while controlling him.

He was destructive, to say the least. Our classroom did not have a single window pane as he had broken all of them. Over in a corner lay a heap of broken desks and chairs, the result of his handiwork. He had been caned twice in front of the whole school for his misdeeds but he remained unrepentant. I was sure that he would be sacked from school if he carried his behaviour in the same manner.

One day Rohit’s mother died. For a whole week he was absent from school. When he returned, he was totally changed. I nearly did not recognize him. For a moment I thought we had a new classmate, but it was Rohit well-groomed and neatly dressed.

Not only his appearance changed but his behaviour also changed dramatically. He had become the most well-behaved boy in the class. No longer did he break chairs or anything else. The teachers and prefects were visibly shocked, but they were glad for it.

It was a miracle that Rohit turned over a new leaf. One day he confided to me that it was his mother’s death that changed him. He realized how horrible he had been just before his mother died. So he made a promise to his mother at her deathbed to change himself into a well behaved boy and thus he kept his promise.

I am glad for him. He is now a pleasure to be with and one of my best friends.
