Mumbai: We’ve all experienced that bittersweet moment when we bid farewell to our schools, marking a new chapter in our lives as we enter college. But trust me, no period of life could be as memorable as school life.
Most students eagerly anticipate their farewell, excited to don their best outfits – girls in sarees and boys in suits – yet also feeling nervous about the upcoming phase in their lives. It’s during this time that juniors (typically 9th or 11th-grade students) plan farewell parties for their beloved seniors.
Students prepare speeches to express gratitude to their teachers and friends on the farewell day, while juniors also prepare welcome speeches for their seniors and teachers, celebrating their cherished time together. If you need suggestions and ideas for these speeches, please check below:

1. Respected teachers and my dear friends. On this farewell day, I want to thank all our teachers for their immense support and care. The school was like our second home and I want to thank all my friends and juniors for their love and cooperation. I would also like to apologise to everyone if I have hurt anyone unintentionally. I wish all the best to my friends for their future journey. Thank you all.
2. Hearty wishes everyone! We, the entire batch of class 10th standard, are going to miss this beautiful school campus. All the people I met here including my teachers and batch mates have played an important role in shaping my personality. I want to remind my classmates that farewell is not the end and we will continue to remain in touch with each other in future too. It cannot be the end of the sweet memories we created and bonds we built all these years.
How to start a farewell speech
1. Respected teachers and dear friends, today, we bid farewell to our school life with teary eyes. We will always remember our wonderful time we spent at our school throughout our lives.
2. Hello everyone, school has given me the best memory ever. I will miss playing on the playground with my friends and studying in my classrooms. How pumped up we all used to be on hearing the school bell? The inter-house sports competition used to be a thrilling experience. I will miss all of these.
Welcome speech for farewell (for seniors)
Good morning/ afternoon/ evening all of you, you all look great. Endings are only new beginnings, so let us cherish and revisit those moments you have spent on this campus. Our batch got tough scolding from teachers because you seniors have set an example by being excellent in academics, sports, and all extracurricular activities and making our school proud. We hope you accomplish a lot in the future.
We have planned an evening full of fun activities and surprises. Hope you will have a good time.
