My First Day at School

After about two months of summer vacation our school reopened of  16th of July, 15th of July being the Sunday. After a long relax  of two months in habit to wake up late the morning. I got up early in the morning. I took my breakfast and left for the school. The school was to open at 9 a.m.

On one hand I seemed to be quite enthusiastic to be again with my friends whom I really missed during the vacation but on the other I seemed to be averse to the routine of the school which was not so exhilarating for its disciplined code of attending classes and reading lessons, solving sums and doing laboratory work. Still there was something which made this routine somewhat worth doing.

On the way to school , I met my friends. Everyone looked cheerful. As we reached the school gate, we heard the ringing of the call bell. We first huried to our classrooms to keep our bags and then to prayer ground to attend the prayer. At the end of the prayer, our Principal addressed the boys. In his address, the Principal mentioned Wordsworth’s observation, “A a twig is bent, so the tree will grow”. In relation to tender and delicate students he said that the minds of students were like photographic plate, whatever impressions are left on  them, they retain it. So he advised us to cast the impressions which would include love the motherland, devotion to duty, regularity and punctuality. Then at the end of his address, we all went to our classes.  

On the first day , we did not have our regular studies. Most of the teachers were busy with new admissions. Moreover, the students were also not in mood to study. The students were talking about their experiences of the summer vacation. I told them about my visit to Ajanta, Allora and stay in Nanital for a fortnight. In school, I found a large number of changes, broken window panes had been replaced, rooms were white washed and the furniture repaired. Everything looked new. The thing which I liked most was the water cooler, which was a great comfort to us in summer.

While we were enjoying gossiping in the class, the bell announced the beginning of the recess period. This year new canteen was installed in the school. It was run by “Students Cooperative Society”. I went to canteen with my friends. The  tea, coffee, cold drinks and snacks all were available at cheap rates. I had a cold drink and some snacks there. In the mean-time, the call bell rang and we all went back to our classes.

After the fifth period, all the students assembled in the hall. The new comers were seated on the stage. At first the Principal welcomed the new students. some of them seemed to be very active and smart. They told about their liking’s and hobbies, which were admirable. In the end, the Principal welcomed the teachers. Soon the function came to an end. I returned home with the sweet and happy memories of the day.
