Sweet School Memories

October 15 is celebrated as World Students’ Day annually to commemorate the birth anniversary of India’s former president, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. Kalam loved interacting with students and always encouraged them to develop their talents and pursue their goals. School life is the most important period in one’s life. The experiences children have as students shape their personalities and these memories live on forever. SCARLETT RODRIGUES spoke to a few RobinAgers to know more about their most unforgettable school memories.

The day I enjoyed the most in school was the day each one of us dressed up like our favourite sports stars. I went to school as Virat Kohli. I wore a jersey and my mom painted a beard on my face. My friends dressed up as Sachin Tendulkar, PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal. Many of my classmates dressed up as famous football, hockey and tennis stars. Each one of us had to speak a few lines about the athlete we were dressed up as. It was so much fun!

The best day I had at school was the day our teacher asked us to enact the story of Sringeri Srinivas, a farmer who grew bananas that made the most delicious banana halwa. I was given the opportunity to play the role of the main character, Sringeri Srinivas himself! I used a marker pen to draw a beard on my face to resemble the character. Enacting the story was so much fun! It brought the story in the book to life. My classmates enjoyed the performance so much that they asked me to autograph their notebooks at the end of the play.

We were being taught swimming in school. We normally swam in the small pool but on one particular day, our teacher allowed us to swim in the big pool. It was a very exciting experience. We splashed water on each other. My friends and I had short swimming races. We formed teams and decided that the losing team would give the winning team chocolates. We had an amazing time.

The best memory I have in school is the annual day celebration I was part of. I was chosen as the main dancer of the group that was to perform a western dance. My group had practised very hard before the final day. On the main day of the event, all of us were anxious. This was the first time I was chosen as the main dancer. My heart pounded as the name of our group was announced. But once our performance began, it went on very smoothly. Everyone in the audience cheered for us and the auditorium was filled with the sound of claps by the end of our performance. I will always remember that moment.

When I was in class 6, we had a fun day in school. Our teachers planned a day filled with games and activities. We enjoyed the treasure hunt the most. We formed teams and searched for clues all around the school, laughing and enjoying ourselves as we went from class to class. Then, when we went to our classroom to rest, one of my friends stood up, walked towards the blackboard and randomly broke into a dance. All of us clapped, sang and cheered for him. Soon, all of us joined him and the jig turned into a Dance Fiesta. This is a day I will always cherish.

The Independence Day celebration in school this year is something I will always remember as I got a chance to participate in it. The flag hoisting took place at the hands of our principal. This was followed by many performances including a street play in which I participated, a melodious song sung by the choir group, a dance gracefully performed by the seniors and a song sung by our teachers. The best part of the event was when the teachers, the student council and the participants got together to click a picture. What a wonderful day it was!
