My School :
Educational institutions are the true seats of learning. The students, who are really anxious to learn, can develop healthy habits only in the schools. In a school we are taught how to move in society, how to behave with others and how to progress in life.
I read in the St. John’s Higher Secondary School - Andaman and Chennai. With a lush garden outside, the school building presents a magnificent view. Its grassy lawns and gravel path with flowers along its sides and the Asoka trees growing near the gate add to its beauty. Any outsider may form the idea that it is perhaps a memorial building.
Besides the beautiful building, spacious grounds and flowered beds, there are other things which attract our particular attentions. There is a grand swimming pool where every facility is provided to the students to learn swimming. The school has its own canteen where some eatables - hot tea or coffee and cold drinks - are always avail at subsidized rates. Hygienic conditions prevail in and around the school canteen. Besides, there is a cycle stand where the teachers and students park their cycles and scooters. An attendant is there who looks after the vehicles.
Our school has many firsts to its credit. It has won many trophies in inner-school debates and declamation contests. The hockey and basketball teams of our school are adjudged the best in the inner-school sports meet for the past four years.
In studies, our school shows goods results every year. Our school figures in the merit list every year. Our Principal is a great scholar. He meets some of the classes himself once a week to ensure regular teaching. Our teachers are well qualified and trained. They take pains in the teaching work. The students are well behaved and intelligent. The physical training teacher has also worked a lot for the benefit of the students.
The educations authorities are highly satisfied with our school. I am proud of it. It is one’s first and foremost duty to respect one’s school.
