Welcome Speech for Chief Guest at School and College

Welcome Speech for Chief Guest by the Principal at Annual day

Good evening everyone,

I heartily welcome you all on the behalf of ABC Public School, Noida, for the prestigious occasion of our school celebrating its 25th Annual day on the event of completing its 25 golden years, in other words, celebrating its Silver Jubilee. It is very difficult to believe that what was once dreamt is being fulfilled now. The idea of putting the foundation of an educational institution is so inspiring: what was once planted as a sapling is now all grown into a large tree. Here I can see a blend of extraordinary and smart students and their parents who have made this day arrive; they have come to us from each and every corner of the city.

Every year, I find it to be my pleasure to address you people who are the young minds of today and the responsible citizens of tomorrow. I and whole of our dedicated teachers’ team appreciate the efforts put in by the parents along with their wards. So, here I feel privileged to extend my warm welcome to all the dear parents who are constantly extending their support & love to pupils as well as faculty members of this school.

Taking our evening further and to begin with the Annual Function, I on the behalf of everyone present here, heartily welcome the inaugurator and the dignitary of the priceless function today, the Guest of honour, Mr.XYZ Kapoor, who is the social worker, educationist and philanthropist. I am especially thankful to him as when we approached him with the invitation card & requested him to grace the evening as the Chief Guest, Mr Kapoor accepted our request and readily agreed when he looked at today’s event and its program.

Mr.Kapoor is a well known name in the matters related to Women Empowerment. He has put in a lot of efforts for promoting the education of girl child, for this he has even set up many small education centres for girls and ladies. His initiative of setting up an orphanage and the old age home is what everyone is talking and praising about, nowadays.

So, give a huge round of applause as I call upon Mr. XYZ Kapoor, for the lamp lightening ceremony and request him to speak a few words about his endeavours and his life experiences.

Thank you all!

Welcome Speech for Chief Guest by Principal at the Annual Sports Day

Good afternoon everyone,

On the behalf of St. JKL Academy, I extend a very warm welcome to all of you present here on the 14th annual sports meet of our school. Sports are an integral as well as necessary part of our lives.

Sports, whether team based or individual are a great activity for children that provide us a variety of benefits other than physical fitness. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem, confidence and can motivate children to excel academically and can help build their social skills. It can even teach children the ways and benefits of goal setting & practice.

So, with this purpose, we organise a sports meet every year in an order where 100% participation is encouraged and each participant is rewarded and it is the participation of children that is most important for us and gives us immense joy. This year our school has been declared as one of the best institutions of the city which has included and is following extra-curricular activities in the daily time-table. I wish to thank and congratulate each one of you dear parents for, without your support, it would not have been possible for us. Dear parents, what you see today, is the culmination of massive, continuous efforts put in by the students and teachers. So, sit tight and cheer our students with your generous applause.

I am pleased to share that the distinguished guest to honour us with her presence today as the Chief Guest of our Sports day is none other than Ms Babita Kumari Phogat, the legendary Indian wrestler & Olympian. After a biopic (“Dangal”) has been made over their inspiring life stories,  I believe almost all of you must be aware of Phogat sisters who epitomise unfailing spirit to succeed despite all odds. Miss Phogat is one of the Indian women wrestlers who have made their nation proud many a times by their outstanding performance in the area mostly dominated by men.

Her valiant struggle backed by her strong determination brought her all the way where she is now. She has won 3 Gold medals and 1 Silver medal for India in Commonwealth Wrestling Championship along with 2 Bronze medals in World Wrestling Championship & Asian Wrestling Championship. It is a privilege for all of us gathered here to have such a celebrity between us as our esteemed guest of honour.

So, with a huge round of applause, let us please call upon Miss Babita Phogat to grace the dais and share her inspiring life story with all of us here.

Hope you all have a great time.

Thank You!

Welcome Speech for Chief Guest by the student at the academic award ceremony

Hon’ble Chief Guest, Mr. DM, Mr. DG, Director, Mrs. P, Principal , Mr. VP, Vice Principal, dignitaries on the dais, respected teachers, parents and my dear friends, a very Good Evening to one & all present in the Auditorium. It is a great pleasure of mine to address and share with you this delightful evening to celebrate and reward the academic achievements of the students of “XYZ School”.

This is Abc, the Head Boy and student of class 12th-A. School & I am extremely honoured and have this opportunity to address you at this prestigious moment when our institution, XYZ School is celebrating its 15th Annual Academic Award Ceremony where our school rewards the scholars for their hard work and motivate them to keep their aspirations higher.

Aside, from the fact that this ceremony underlines, our institution’s successful back to back 15 years, in the realm of imparting education to the children, this day is also going to witness the showcasing of the talents of the young minds of our school.

Education is about far more than what happens within the four walls of the classroom and we are very fortunate to have such teachers, trainers and instructors who recognises this. If this building and teachers are the two resources available to the school, then certainly, we the students are the third. Really, one of the joys of teaching is to draw that creative, academic, sporting potential out of their students.

Our school believes that they are not just looking for Academic Qualifications but also for personal qualities like Leadership & teamwork, Determination & Flexibility, Confidence & Self -Belief, Respect & Consideration etc.

I on the behalf of the school and behalf of myself feel delighted to see the hard-work done by the students of 9th &10th standards even more than we used to do and our fingers crossed for them as they await their results to be declared tonight. I would also give a great deal of credit to all of the students who worked hard and could hit their targets.

The duty which I am bestowed today is to welcome everyone to this grand celebration of encouraging students. So, Firstly, I would like to welcome our Hon’ble Principal Ma’am, the life blood of our school who sleeps less and works more in planning about the betterment of the school and students. We welcome you in the most humble & prestigious programme. It is a special pleasure to heartily welcome all the dearest parents who have constantly extended their love & support to all the high prospects of our institution.

I am glad to respectfully & cordially welcome the Chief Guest of the evening, who does not need any formal introduction as almost all of us gathered here are aware of his deeds done for the development and improvement in the city’s infrastructure and environment. He is the person who has ensured the safety of girls and ladies at prior along with his social services done for the poor and needy people by providing them with shelters. He is none other than Mr. DM, the District Magistrate of the city.

So, with a huge round of applause, May I please call upon Mr. DM on the stage so as to get an opportunity for all of us to listen to such a great personality.

Thank You.
