Describe your first day at school

  • Where it was?
  • What happened?
  • Explain how you felt on that day
Sample Answer

Though I have a vague recollection of my past, still if I go down the memory lane I can recall few incidents of my life.
When I first began schooling, I was admitted in a play-school. My parents had pre-planned everything beforehand. However, I do not know the reason why, but there was some problem in my documents, and there was a lot of paperwork that my father had to do that morning. My father was quite upset about it, as it was the school management’s fault. This incident is the only first thing which comes to my mind whenever I think of my first day. My school was in Dehradun and I was approximately four years old. I also remember that during the first day, an interclass competition was held, so that the students could interact with each other and make new friends. So it was a race where the kids were supposed to hold a spoon in their mouth, and put a lemon in the spoon and walk fast. We were not supposed to run, but it was a fast walking race. I participated in that and I was declared the third winner. It was a very proud feeling because when I came back home, my father was happy to see that. I studied for seven years in that school. Those were the most memorable years of my life.

Follow Up Questions:

Q1. Do you think students should be taken to school by their parents or go by themselves?
Answer: Children in primary classes should not go to school by themselves. Either the parents should drop them, or they should arrange a van or bus. Children in high school and secondary school can go on their own.

Q2. Should children rely on their parents or be independent?
Answer: Children should rely on their parents till they are studying. Once they complete their studies, they should start earning and become independent and support their parents.

Q3. How can children become more independent?
Answer: Children can become more independent if parents let them take small decisions on their own when they are very young. If parents allow children some
freedom, then children can become independent very soon.

Q4. What is the effect if parents interfere with children’s life too much?
Answer: If parents interfere with children’s lives too much, they either become rebels or become introverts. Their personality is
snubbed, and they cannot develop to their full potential.

Sample Answer

Life has given me a lot of happiness and moments to celebrate with my near and dear ones. I have celebrated many happy moments by hosting parties for someone and attending other people’s parties as well.

I have attended many parties on different occasions in my life but the most enjoyable one was a party that I held to mark my elder sisters twenty-fifth birthday. It was a surprise party that I planned with the help of my mother. It was on the twenty-fifth of September last year, and I had started to plan it two days before. After my sister left for work in the morning I started decorating our garden and installing the setup including the tables and chairs. My mother started baking her favourite chocolate cake while I called all her friends and our relatives to the party in the evening. I then proceeded to order snacks and appetizers along with the beverages for the evening. The celebrations finally commenced and all the guests had arrived before she came. We welcomed her with the birthday song and hugs from everyone.

We all had an amazing time at the party. Everybody socialized, we played party games, danced and had a lot of fun throughout the evening. The best part was the fact that everyone was happy with the celebration and there were smiles all around me. My sister got gifts from everyone and was all smiles when I gifted her a necklace. She was spellbound and thanked me profusely for organizing such an amazing party.

Sample Answer 2: 

Frankly speaking, I am not a party buff and usually attend only those parties wherein I know some people or there is something exciting going on. The party that I am going to talk about is the one I went to last year. It was my friend’s friend birthday bash and she invited all of us. Initially, I was fine with going there but later on my friend told me she cannot come along and I almost cancelled my plan, when my friend’s friend actually called and invited me again to come.

Hesitantly, I said a yes and I would say that was the best yes I had ever said. The party was in Rishikesh, a tourist spot in Uttarakhand, India. It was a night party and there were campfires, music, dance, games and a lot of interesting people. To my surprise, Anusha i.e. my friend’s friend knew a lot of people and had invited them all. And I met and talked to many interesting people that I might otherwise never have come across! This included the self-employed interior designer; marathon runners; entrepreneurs, writers. It was exciting to talk to them and find out how they are connected with the host.

Not only were the people great, but the food and other services were also fantastic. There were stalls of different kinds and one could eat whatever they wish. And it was really tasty food too!!

What’s more, I discovered that actually, I did know quite a few people there after all. I am almost won over. Next time she offers to host a party, I might even find myself looking forward to it, you never know.
