Farewell Speech

I remember thinking  to myself that it would be hard to say goodbye ... and I was right - it is hard. Yet I consider myself fortunate to have learnt in such a special school ... a school that we care so much about ... that it really aches ...while saying goodbye .  

As we say goodbye, we remind ourselves that farewells are not forever, nor are they the end. They are simply words to say that we will miss you dearly and that we will remember you all fondly.  
To quote Shakespeare, who is a better word-smith than I am:

"And whether we shall meet again I know not.
Therefore our everlasting farewell take:
For ever, and forever, farewell, friends!
If we do meet again, why, we shall smile;
If not, why, then this parting was well made. "

Although we may be separated by time and distance in the interim, nothing will diminish the important role that the school and my friends have and always will play in our lives. I wish you happy adventures, fantastic new friendships, amazing experiences and the journey of a lifetime. The school always will be with us as we carry it always close to our hearts. To see you here in front of me, the last time all together, is a picture I will treasure for a very long time.

So... until the next time we gather, my very dear friends, farewell for now. May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warmly upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand!!!
