My First Day at School – An Exercise in Descriptive Writing

Every child’s first day at school is always very exciting. At least, it was so in my case.
I remember my first day at school very vividly. I remember it was my mother who took me to my school on my first day there.

My First Day at School


I had a small bag in my hand. It contained an exercise book, a pencil and an eraser beside me. I actually did not need all these things but had insisted on my taking them with me.
My father had already filled up the admission form and submitted it to the school Principal a number of days before. Now, I had to appear for an interview. My mother went to the school superintendent and got the admission form. She took it to the Principal. Before entering the Principal’s office, she had to wait outside for a few minutes. She sent a slip in and was soon called inside.
My mother took me inside the Principal’s office. I felt a little awed as I saw a big tall lady with a dominating personality occupying a revolving chair. However, her sweet voice soon allayed my fears.
She studied the admission form quickly. She expressed satisfaction regarding my age and my parents’ qualifications. She asked me to come close to her. I moved forward rather sheepishly. But she patted me on the back lovingly. Then she asked me a few very simple questions such as my name, my papa’s and mummy’s names, etc.
Meanwhile, I had gathered courage and I was able to answer all the questions without much hesitation. The Principal was satisfied with my answers and she expressed her satisfaction through a broad smile. She wrote ‘yes’ at the appropriate column in the admission form. My mother along with me came out and deposited the fee with the fee clerk. I had got admission to the nursery class. It was, however, on the next day I was actually sent to attend the class. The day of my admission to the school was really an exciting one for. As soon as the bell declaring the end of the recess period goes, the students hurry to their classes and studies again start in right earnest.

Ans:                  My Experience of Travelling by the City Bus.                            

 Travelling by the city bus in Delhi is an experience in itself. It is a rare sight to see a city Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus going empty. If somebody sees an empty bus, he thanks his stars profusely. Once inside the bus, a passenger has to buy a ticket. Of late, these tickets have become costlier. Then, the passenger moves forward and looks for a vacant seat. A gentleman cannot occupy a ‘Ladies seat’ reserved for old and young ladies. If by chance, a Youngman sits on a ‘Ladies Only’ seat he becomes a victim of everybody’s witty jibes. In all, it is an interesting experience travelling by a DTC bus.

The Role of Schools in Preventing Communicable Diseases

 Before we embark on addressing this topic, we should try to understand about communicable diseases. Surely, communicable diseases, as the very word ‘communicable’ implies are those diseases which are communicated from person to person. This communication of diseases often takes place through certain media such as air or water.
The commonest communicable diseases ale T.B, asthma, bronchitis, cholera, Hepatitis B and C, diarrhoea, dysentery, etc. In order to prevent these diseases, it is essential to keep the atmosphere neat, clean and hygienic such as not to create an ambience for the concerned bacteria to grow and flourish.
It is essential to take effective steps to prevent the multiplication of flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches, etc. which act as agents who carry the disease germs to the victims. Hands must be washed before eating and all clothes and utensils must be kept clean and washed after every usage. Preventive vaccines for diseases such as Hepatitis, cholera, measles, etc. must he got inoculated quite an in time.
As for the school’s role in preventing communicable diseases, effective and well-meaning functions for the purpose may be held in schools, where people from the town and adjoining villages can be invited. At such functions, causes of such diseases and their remedies can be highlighted.
Students should be encouraged to visit slums and rural areas, especially during summer vacation, to enlighten the people regarding the necessity of keeping their surroundings clean.
 In case a disease spreads in an epidemic form, schools can be changed into temporary hospitals and dispensaries where the patients, can be treated by experts and the school teachers and students can do all kinds of social service that is necessary to make the campaign a success.
