Farewell Speech by our Std XII Students
Isha Desai-XII B
For the better part of my life, this school has been my second home, and it’s really hard to talk about 14 years of memories in one short speech. Now that we’re all here today, officially saying Goodbye to this school, our teachers & to each other, it finally dawns upon me what a big piece of my life I’m leaving behind.. Some of you, I’ve known since forever and some of you, just a couple of years. You guys are some of the most amazing people I know and I’m going to miss you all. This past year, I have had the honour of being the head girl of this prestigious institute. I take immense pride in the fact that everyone has shown so much faith in me. All my teachers, every single one of them has played an important role in bringing me where I am today. Always ready to help, academics or otherwise, you are an integral part of me and I thank you for being there when I needed you. This big blue building means more to me than words can express .It saddens me now that I realize I will never be coming back here again. As much as it kills me to say this, Today is the day, today is the day we venture into the world. Today is the day we leave school. Today is the day we say goodbye. But don’t be dismayed at goodbyes ;a farewell is necessary before we Can meet again. Thank You

Good Evening Everybody, I am Malhar Bhoite
I wrote this speech last night and the only thing I couldn’t find was the perfect opening line. Everything has been heard and said over the years. All I know, is that I stand here today, with a heavy heart. What does Vikhe Patil mean to me? It simply defines who I am. I like to think of VPMS as a sculptor ,which takes in every year, a group of uncultured minds and sends out every year, a batch of refined individuals, each with a unique character and ambition for his/her life ahead. This difficult task of chiseling is done by our teachers. Today, being one of the outgoing students, I hope I make my teachers and school proud of me. The school has taught me so many skills and values that its not possible to list them down in one small speech. It has been an enriching and memorable journey of fourteen lovely years and being the Headboy this year.
It’s a ruthless world out there! The elders say, people will not hesitate to trample you. but, I believe that along with the required skills, one needs to be a good human being to succeed professionally and personally. This, is what I have learnt here. It goes without saying, my life is not going to be the same without school. Being in school subjects you to a healthy routine and discipline. If you stray off the track ,there are always people who will guide back. In college, there is going to be no such support system. Each individual is on his own, and all of us have to face various challenges and make difficult decisions. That’s natural , but how you deal with it depends on how you have been moulded by your parents and school. I am confident that both have done an excellent job and I am ready to take on the
world. Also, the kakas & Maushis keeping it spic & span and making it a pleasure to step into school every morning.
I take this opportunity to thank all the teachers for teaching us not only the assigned curriculum but also enlightening us with the valuable lessons of life. next, the management of VPMS for showing us how to run the school with dignity and discipline and ofcourse ! I would like to thank my dear friends, some, who taught me what to do in life by being shining examples and some others, who taught me what not to do!
A special thanks to all the teachers present here today for being a part of these final two years. Looking at them take a keen interest and excel in their respective subjects has always inspired me to pursue and master at least one, if not more of these subjects. All my teachers and friends have always been an integral part of my life and not seeing...
