Dear Arti,

You would be happy to know that our school celebrated its Silver Jubilee last week when you had gone to attend your cousin’s marriage. During the week, the Arts Club of the school organised a poster and painting competition for junior classes. This was followed by a ‘walk a mile rally, in which besides the students, parents also participated with great enthusiasm. The rally was led by our School Captain Amit Mishra. The objective of the rally was to create awareness about conservation of natural resources to safeguard the environment.

However, the climax of the jubilee celebration, was a scintillating function held in the school auditorium, in the benign presence of the Founder Director Shri U P Singh. The function began with the traditional lighting of the lamp by the Director, in the presence of the school Principal Ms Joseph. In his brief speech. Mr Singh recalled the memorable past, the glorious present and the bright future of the school. After his address, the cultural program organised by the cultural club unfolded. As the captain of cultural club, I had made special effort to present something new, for which I had sought the help of our music teacher Mr Sharma.

The theme of the function being ‘HOPE’, we presented through songs and dance, socially relevant messages highlighting the importance of character building, dignity of labour and unity in diversity.

The music and ingenuity of the program, left the audience spellbound. The show reached its pinnacle, when the we sang ‘Jai Ho’, which so enthralled the audience that they also joined in the chorus.

It would have been wonderful if you could also have joined in the celebrations.

Looking forward to seeing you in school.

Your friend,


You and your friends decide to play truant from school and go to a morning film show. In the cinema hall, you are spotted by a relative who promptly informs your parents. Write a letter to a friend who lives in another town, expressing your feelings on being discovered, the punishment you received from your parents and what you have learnt from this experience.
