Alumni Welcome Speech

Alumni Welcome Speech

It does not need to be said it’s a privilege for all of us, to have our ex-students here with us at the Alumni Meet of the year ( … )

Ladies and Gents, let’s tread down memory lane to when this school started nurturing you, gradually and slowly with care and responsibility. For those of you, who began their journey here as infants, this was the place which helped teach you right from wrong and laid the foundations of your successful lives.

If you don’t remember your first day in school you must remember the opening weeks full of trepidation when you had to be cajoled to say farewell to your mother. The cheerful smiles of your teachers and fellow pupils who I’m sure warmly welcomed you to new your new surroundings helped you settle.

You got to know your classmates who replaced the comfort zones of your familial homes and that priceless connection of belonging is underpinned by your valuable presence here today.

Speaking for myself, schooling became one of the best experiences in my life, probably down to the mouth-watering school dinners [ Chuckle… ], Do those days bring excitement to you too?

Wouldn’t it have been amazing to look into the future and see ourselves today as young adults and as alumni, talking about our first steps on the road of school education?

With great enthusiasm and excitement, we request you all to share your experience of this college and importantly your outside lives with us. How far are the foundations of your studies here taking you today? How has this wonderful school influenced you?

In my opinion, this school has not left any stone unturned in making its student’s good human beings, first, and well-educated citizens closely second.

Esteemed Alumni, we are looking forward to listening to your accounts of your lives today and how the school helped shape who you are today. We welcome you all to individually to step onto the stage, introduce yourselves [ if you have changed many chuckles] and tell us your experiences, socially, work-wise, and your goals. We will listen with pleasure…

I hope you have a very enjoyable evening. I know I will.

Thank you, everyone!
