Speech on First Day of School

Speech on First Day of School

Good morning to everyone present here. I will be speaking few words on a very interesting topic ‘first day of school’.

The mere mention of this topic brings back a flood of memories to all of us for sure. There is a ‘first’ for all events in our lives and first day of school definitely takes an important position in the same. Well, the experience might not be the same for everybody, but there are definite memories engraved in the mind of each and every individual regarding this one day.

Nowadays, children go to playschools much before they go to real schools and hence their experience might not be the same. There was a time when kids were taught basics at home before they got admitted at a formal school by the age of 4-5 years. I would like to speak on such lines here. Once the admission in school is confirmed, it is time to begin preparations for the very first day of school. More than the child, the parents seem to be nervous and jittery. They have various kinds of confusions and doubts in their minds whether the child will be able to cope up with school and staying away from home and hundred other important and unimportant things.

The morning of the first day of school is special as well. The child gets ready for entering a new phase in his life. For some kids, both parents take him to school on the first day as no-one wants to miss this experience. While some kids are happy, some are scared and tensed. Some are seen smiling, while some don’t stop crying. The scenario at the school is amazing. Some kids willingly go inside the school guided by seniors and teachers; while others go wailing and shouting as if being punished. The first day of school is usually for a brief period. When the child comes out from school on this day, he has already made a memory to be cherished for lifelong!

Essay on Rose Flower

Rose Flower

Do you like roses? Do you look forward to getting fresh roses and embracing their profound beauty? For many years, roses have been a symbol of love, friendship, and happiness. While some view roses as the perfect gift for saying “I’m sorry,” others have embraced the sadness of roses at funerals and wakes. A prickly bush or shrub bearing red, yellow, or pink flowers, roses have become a classic favorite flower for many people around the world.

Whether you are buying a rose to show love and appreciation for the love of your life or buying a rose for your mom, presenting these flowers to that special someone represents something meaningful to anyone who receives them. However, showing appreciation and love isn’t the only meaning behind a rose.

Meaning of a Rose

For many receiving a rose may say “I Love You,” but there are also other meanings in the colors and reasons why people receive roses. Some of these meanings include:

  • Red Rose – The classic red rose has become a way that many have shown affection to their loved ones. With it being a way to say, “I Love You,” the red rose is a symbol of love and romance. It has also become known as a symbol of perfection. If you decide to give a dark red rose to someone, then you are recognizing an undeniable unconscious beauty.
  • Lavender – Giving a lavender rose is a more unique and beautiful way of saying, “I Love You,” and this rose is good to give to others if you are hoping to build a stronger bond with a person.
  • Salmon Rose – With the salmon-colored rose being a pinker shade of orange, this rose is not only unique in color, but also in the meaning behind it. Expressing excitement and desire, if you give this color rose to someone, you are saying that your desire for them is very strong.
  • Yellow Rose – A yellow rose has many different meanings and usually gives people a warm feeling of happiness. If you are wanting to show appreciation in the friendship and joy you share with someone, then a yellow rose would be the rose you would give to that person. Cheerfulness is also another meaning that is represented with this rose when giving it to someone.

More Rose Color Meanings

  • White Rose – Many may see the color white as innocence, but white roses have been known to be used in weddings. In celebrations like this, a white rose can likely mean new beginnings or memories. This rose can be given to someone to make them remember good times or get ready for a new beginning in their life. Either way, you will find graciousness if you give this rose to someone.
  • Green Rose – Another symbol of cheerfulness, a green rose is a celebrator of the abundance of living. Giving this rose to someone says that you appreciate their constant rejuvenation of life and spirit. Green is a color that represents life.
  • Peach Rose – If you need to say “Thank You,” then giving someone peach-colored roses will do just that. Giving someone this color of rose also shows the person you are giving them to, how much you appreciate them.


Even though roses are admired because of their beauty, they express and say the things to others that need to be said. If you are wanting to say “I’m sorry,” then giving someone red roses will always do it. If you are really wanting to show your appreciation to a loved one, then the adoring peach roses will be what you would give your loved one. Roses have been the best way to express every kind of loving emotion for years. Many may love the classic red rose, but the color of love and appreciation can be given in any color.

Speech on Fire Safety in Schools

Speech on Fire Safety in Schools

Good morning everybody. I am standing on the podium today to speak on the topic ‘fire safety in schools’.

Proper provision for fire safety amenities will not only ensure safety of the kids studying in the school, but also be a safeguard for the property of the school.

Fire safety in schools is kind of mandatory and there should not be any kind of compromise with the same. School is a place where large numbers of students gather together and an incident like fire will affect all of them. Depending on the severity of the fire, there can be cases of casualties as well, which is not desired in any way. A fire breakout in school is difficult to control normally because there are different kinds of inflammable materials. The furniture in school – tables, chairs, desks, etc. are made of wood and catch fire easily. Moreover, there are many inflammable chemicals present in the chemistry lab, which can make situations worse. If the school has a canteen, there will be use of gas for cooking, etc. and is a vulnerable area for fire as well.

Fire safety is of great importance in school. Every floor of the school should have fire extinguishers, which are in working condition. Children should be taught to operate these in case there is an emergency. There should be sand banks so that they can be used when needed. Teachers, non-teaching staff and others should be informed on operations of the fire extinguisher. The message of this speech in short is – Prevention is better and fire safety is one way to ensure it.

Speech on Each One Teach One

Speech on Each One Teach One

Hello everyone. Today I would like to give a speech on the topic ‘each one teach one’. I am sure many of you will have already heard the term. The meaning of the phrase is quite clear, but we often don’t understand the real meaning of it.

To understand the actual meaning of the phrase ‘each one teach one’, one has to understand the history associated with the phrase. This is actually an African-American proverb.

Today this phrase has gained international importance as it points towards a duty that people have towards society. The educated class has social and moral responsibility to teach minimum one illiterate person each. One small step is bound to make a great difference to the society at large. If every literate person teaches just one illiterate person, in no time the problem of illiteracy will be wiped from the surface of the earth.

It is true that various kinds of government policies and plans are being made and implemented for spreading education to all. Moreover, various agencies and non-profit organizations are also involved in the cause. But to make ‘each one teach one’ successful, individual contribution from students, homemakers, professionals and from everyone is needed. The practice can be started at home and then can be taken to bigger levels. This step is indeed worth taking!

Speech on Gandhiji

Speech on Gandhiji

Good morning everyone. I am here to present a speech on Gandhiji.

Popularly known as the Father of the Nation or Bapu, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869. His role and contributions to the Indian Freedom Movement is known to everyone, where he stands as a tall figure. Born to Karamchand Gandhi and Putlibai, Gandhiji spent his childhood like any ordinary kid.

At a very young age of 13 years, he was married to Kasturba Bai. However, he continued his studies and passed his matriculation and other exams. After completion of his college studies, he went to England to pursue the study of law. He became a barrister and returned to India. In 1893 he went to South Africa for some case, where he spent almost 20 years of his life. It was in South Africa that his social and political views were transformed. He begun nationalistic organizations for the Indians in the country along with starting the Tolstoy Farm.

In the year 1915, Gandhiji returned to India and joined the national freedom movement immediately and joined Congress. His first battle against the British was launching the Satyagraha movement. Non-cooperation movement and ahimsa (non-violence) were his weapons for fighting against the British. No one can ever forget the historic Dandi March and breaking of the Salt Law. Both these movements was led by this man. Gandhiji also fueled the fire for ‘Quit India Movement’ in the year 1942. When India got independence on 15th August 1947 from British shackles, one prominent name behind the victory was that of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

Gandhiji had a frail body and used to be clad in cotton loin-cloth; he also led a very ordinary and simple life. He played a prominent role in upliftment of Harijans.

On 30th January 1948, Gandhiji was assassinated in the evening when his usual prayer meeting was held.

Speech on illiteracy

Speech on illiteracy

Hello and warm good morning to all. My topic of speech for the day is illiteracy.

All of us have heard of the term ‘illiteracy’ innumerable times in our life. We all know that illiteracy is one of the biggest vices, which leads to many other kinds of problems. Eradication of illiteracy is necessary not only for an individual, but also for the society as a whole.

Illiteracy is the inability of an individual to read and write. A person who knows to read and write and sign his own name is considered to be literate in our country. Sadly, quite a huge part of the Indian population is illiterate till date. And this is one of the biggest hurdles for economic development in the nation.

Illiteracy and ignorance go hand in hand with one another. An illiterate person does not have basic knowledge on things, which are so very important in life. This leads them to remain in darkness. If you take note and carefully observe, you will see that illiterate people are easily duped and cheated by fraudsters. The imposters trick these illiterate people and make them understand things in a wrong way. Due to the lack of knowledge and understanding, the illiterate people fall prey to the trap and are wronged. Many such people have lost their lands and properties to imposters. They only came to realize of the loss, when the harm was done and nothing else could be done to damage the repairs.

One of the biggest challenges in our country is to combat illiteracy completely. Various kinds of steps have been taken by the government, non-government agencies, and non-profit organizations and so on to bring literacy to every corner of the country. Each boy and girl should be provided education. This will not only make a strong individual, but will make the backbone of the society strong and bold.

Eradicating illiteracy completely from a country like ours is an uphill task, but efforts are being made strongly in the field.
