Its Time to cherish School Memories

We grow,move to college,then to offices and finally settle down to marriage but we never forget the moments we had spent in our school.

Normally as a kid we hate school,getting up early,exam days,homework and we get all sort of ailments and aches to avoid it.Once we leave it,we start missing  and feel pride about each and every element of our school life.

It has been more than 10 years since I left the safe confines of my school to enter this competitive world to prove my so called worth .Life was so easy then,we had family friends,teachers push us into comfort zone,things have changed now.

I wish I could go back to School as I miss it a lot.

Today’s post is about all those lovely moments you could relate to your school days.

Parent’s Teacher Meeting:

The day can be termed as ‘Dooms day’ when parents and the teachers meets to discuss you.

You expressions when teacher showing exam sheet to your mom.

This is how your mom looked at you after checking your answer sheets.

Morning Assemblies :

Coming up with excuses and bunking the morning assembly to escape the uniform checking and scorching heat.After all, the accomplishment of bunking the 30 minutes morning assembly under the sun, to relax under the fan inside the classroom, gave such a big high!

Making sure your morning pledge was “conditional”. Ahem….!!!
” … All Indians are my brothers and sisters except….. and …… …..” wink emoticon
Most of us used to even skip this linetongue emoticon

That Wow!! moment when you get the chance to stand besides your crush in morning assembly.

Forgetting to wear the white canvas shoes on Saturdays and getting punishment from the “PT” teacher.schoolshoes

And how many times did you rub white chalk on the dirty shoes to make them ‘whiter’?

Slam Books:

Most of you must have still treasured your friends profile.

Slam books were best to describe one’s own self when Facebook didn’t existed.

Artist in you :

SUPW classes for most of us meant to be Some Useful Periods Wasted tongue emoticon
Masterpieces created in SUPW classes with our rich collection of colors:

We all considered ourselves a great painter.

Fancy Dress competition were cool to be part of :

Cheaters:

During exams,you wrote down difficult Maths and Science formulas for Cheating.

Tuition Classes:

Heading to tuition and coaching classes after school meant some more time with friends. And if there were kids from your own school in the same coaching center, you had the time of your life!

Sports Period:

Most Awaited Period in the week was the Sports Period.

Cricket,basketball,volleyball,badminton,Kho-Kho was so much fun.

I still remember the lyrics we used to sing while playing,I sent a letter to my mother on the way i dropped it….Someone came and picked it up And put it in his pocket!

That one hour was the best part of your day.

Birthday Celebrations in school:

Celebrating birthdays are never the same once you’re are out of school.

The entire class singing ‘Happy Birthday To you’,distributing toffees and then distributing  chocolates to all the teachers in entire school was undoubtedly the memory we want to relive.

Some close friends gifting birthday cards make u feel a star.

How many of you tried ringing it with your hands?

Recess/Break time:

After hours of back to back classes ,much needed was the recess to freshen up the minds and fill our empty stomach.

We had similar reactions when one of the friend had Maggi or sandwich in his lunch box.

Recess used to be much more fun than the whole Twenty-Twenty for boys.Some of them just drove to the playground to play their favorite games.

Some VIP’s who used to come without homework, had their best time copying notes.

Possessiveness  for Uniform:

Styling uniform and getting punishment for it was every other day’s job.Hating the school uniform and later fighting with friends from other school that our uniform is better than theirs.

School Trips:

The memory of trips with your school friends to wonderland/Fun Parks or science city were the best thing at that time.

Celebrations :

Excitement at peaks of finally performing the dance you’d practiced for months.

Participating in annual functions was the best way to skip classes officially.How could one miss that?

For conventees ,Christmas was their love!!

Christmas celebration were gala,with decorations,cake and Santa arriving on the lyrics of Jingle bells Jingle bless ,Jingle all the way

In-acting the story of birth of Jesus was kind of every years curriculum. .How cute we looked dressed like shepherds,angles,kings,Mary ?

Class Photographs:

The day we cannot afford to miss school.Eagerly wait for the day when we had class photo.

Punishments:

Punishments is the synonym of school life.The punishments were funner than attending class.Off course being late to school turns a day to start with a punishment.Some of your friends making noise and then entire class gets suffered .cane-corporal-punishment

Excuses to roam around:

Always an eye to grab the chance to take the notebooks to staff room when the teacher leaves the class.Then coming back covering extra miles with the longest possible way to reach the class .

Favorite time-pass after stepping out from the class is here ….which was actually heaven for us

First Crush:

Remember the days when teacher were your first crush? Perhaps your Geography or chemistry teacher?

Cool Fantasy:

Rohfaza in water bottle was the coolest fantasy of childhood.

 

Reliving Memories:

Even today when we visit our school campus,  we relive the memories.Do You Miss the Corridor of Our School which Everyone Would Want Back
The Part Of Our Life When There Were No Worries,Tensions
Just A Worry Of Completing The Homework And The Excitement Of Playing In School Or After Reaching Home
