Speech on Vote of thanks for farewell day
The moment has arrived when I am standing in front of you all to deliver my speech on my final day at college. When I was preparing myself for this day, I had planned a lot of imaginary speeches about my relationship, my learning, my experience with my teachers and college mates, the time spent in the cafeteria, in the canteen and many more such things. But now, when the actual moment has arrived, I can’t think of anything else except the two words, that is, “Thank You”!
I can’t tell you how enriching my last 10 years have been here…(college name). I started my class as a pre-nursery student. I was a bit nervous and fearful at first. But gradually I realized how lucky I am to make friends who were always by my side and teachers who always were supportive and cheerful. I cannot forget the day when my friends organized my secret birthday party after college hours.
To date, these are those people who have helped me in every sphere in my life either it is sharing tiffin, helping in homework or driving me home when my cycle got punctured.
I would like to thank all of them and especially the Principal, who is like a mother to me who forgives me when I make mistakes. She always motivated me like a daughter when I was disheartened and for everything she has done for me till date.
Apart from giving me an enriching experience, all my teachers and friends have given me some real assets in the form of sisterhood and have me touch inspiration and competition to succeed. On a lighter note, I always worked harder to score better because of them.
I would also like to mention the name of the team who always gave me support from the backend. I had trouble on different occasions by asking for complicated problems, however, by besties provided me with that. Thank you guys, you have greatly contributed to my success so far.
I thank the administration team as well for their support as they have valued and acknowledged my suggestions by arranging for the logistics and helping in materializing them.
I would specifically like to thank the backend supporters to have done for me and for all other students in the institutions.
Last but not least, I would sincerely like to thank the cafeteria and canteen staff members for serving men with snacks, homemade food, and beverages.
My entire journey has not only been so enriching but rather also fun-filled. I am surely going to miss the days I have spent here and will use what I have learned here in my future endeavors.
Once again, thanks to all.
