As Mukul/Mahima of Alps Public School, write a speech in about 150-200 words to be
delivered in school assembly highlighting the importance of cleanliness suggesting that the state of cleanliness reflects the character of its citizens. (10 marks) [CBSE Sample Paper 2019]

Good Morning!
Respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Mahima of Class XII of Alps Public School am here to share my views on the topic, “Importance of Cleanliness”. It has been rightly said that “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. The term cleanliness implies the absence of dust, dirt garbage or waste, etc. If one wants to be healthy and fit, a healthy environment is necessary. It is important for everyone’s mind and body as well as spirits like water and oxygen.

The dirty environment affects the health of the people. The state of cleanliness reflects the character of its citizens. We can take a live example of today when people travel in a metro train, they never litter their surroundings, but once they come out of that vicinity, they hardly care. This habit shows their character. If we keep our surroundings clean, it will help in the nation-building exercise too as it will attract more tourists in the country.

Awareness of the cleanliness is the need of the hour in our country where diseases like viral fever, swine flu, malaria, jaundice, etc. are spreading fastly. The awareness camps should be organised by the government, private organisations, and NGOs, and people to make the areas neat and clean. People in society and the community should organise rallies. The revolution of the ‘Clean India Campaign’ is progressively making us aware. We have to continue it by understanding the motto, “Importance and Necessity of Cleanliness”.

The recent rise in incidents of violent behaviour of students is a matter of concern for all. The problem can be cured if students learn how to manage anger. Write a speech on the topic in 150-200 words to be delivered in the school morning assembly. (10 marks) [CBSE (Compartment) 2018]

Good Morning!
Respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Romila of Class XII am here to deliver my views on the topic, “Violence Among Students”.

Recent news of the students’ aggressiveness within the educational institution makes everyone think over it, how violent today’s students are. Be it the school premises or any other place, they are unable to control their anger. On trivial issues, they become temperamental and are dealt with vandalism.

Why do these students have such hostile and antagonistic approach? There are so many reasons. The ‘low self-esteem’ among the students gives way to ‘fear of failure, as a result, they become frustrated and adopt a combative attitude. They want to be the centre of attraction by showing their authority, covering their deficit in other areas of skills. They don’t know how to manage their anger. These are the students classically regarded as ‘Problem Students’. They often have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and show verbal aggression as arguing, cut-down, threats, bossing, sarcasm and teasing.

On the other hand, they show physical aggression exhibiting actions like kicking, lifting, fighting, hurting others, and destroying things and objects as well. This problem can be curbed by teaching them how to manage anger through introspection, meditation, and counselling. Focus should be on moral science and anger management for these students. Parents of these students should be given tips on how to deal with patience and love. They should be taught to adopt a helping attitude. They should be appreciated for the task given to them rather than reprimanding and insulting them before other students. They should be made to come out of their shell of violence through love and care, and giving them what they desire.

Your PGT English Ms. Geetha is a short story writer also. ‘Sky is not Far’ is a collection of her latest short stories. This book has won a national award. Write a speech in 150-200 words you will deliver in her honour in the morning assembly. (10 marks) [CBSE (Delhi) 2017]

Very good morning to Principal Sir/Ma’am, respected teachers, and dear friends. I, Anita, would like to speak about our PGT English, Ms. Geetha, a national awardee for her collection of short stories, ‘Sky is Not Far’.

Ma’am has had this literary talent for a long time. Many of us have already been made familiar with her publications earlier too. We were touched many a time, when in our Literary Club, she read out some of her short stories and requested us to write scripts to enact them in various functions in our school, in the special assemblies, and on two annual day programmes. The themes of her stories are child labour, old age crises, girl child, women empowerment, necessity of ethics for binding family members, compatibility, love for nature, and so on. Her lucid style, simple language, credible characterisation must have moved the jury to select her collection for the National Award.

We are proud of Geetha Ma’am as she is an inspiration for us, who wish to follow her footsteps. Let’s hope with the passage of time, she is endowed with more and more awards.

Thank you all.
Have a nice day.

As a Principal of your school, you have found some students reaching school late in the morning, coming late to their classrooms after recess, and returning lazily to the theory class after doing practicals in the laboratory. Write a speech in 150-200 words that you will deliver on the importance of discipline and punctuality in life. (10 marks) [CBSE (F) 2017]

Good morning students and my dear colleagues. Having noticed the current state of discipline followed by the students, it has become imperative for me as the Principal of this school to enlighten all of you on the significance of discipline in our lives to become successful in our pursuits. Discipline, as understood by most of us, is not about putting ourselves under constraint; it is not about the curtailment of freedom but about taming the mind in order to channelise our energies toward goals of greater happiness in life.

Discipline leads to consistent enjoyment of freedom since it is synonymous with organised life. Discipline begins with punctuality. Being punctual means doing the right thing at the right time. Punctuality ensures that our efforts get due recognition and reward. Discipline is a virtue. Lack of it can easily fail even the most experienced and knowledgeable person. It is essential for all of us in our respective pursuits to obey certain rules and regulations.

Be it a homemaker at home, student in school or college, soldier in a battlefield, player in the playground, administer in administration, etc. It demands self-control and dedication. However, the discipline is an art of living life which could be honed only by practising your dos and don’ts according to your priorities in life. Therefore, I would expect all of you to make it a part of your life and see the change in yourself.

You are Suraj/Sandhya of Gargi Senior Secondary School, Delhi. Games and Sports should be made compulsory in schools. Write a speech for morning assembly on the ‘Importance of Games and Sports in Personality Development’ in about 150-200 words. (10 marks) [CBSE Sample Paper 2015]

Good morning to one and all. Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Sandhya, would like to share my views on the topic, ‘Importance of Games and Sports in Personality Development’.

Sports and Games play a great role in developing our physical fitness. Playing a sport is undoubtedly a fun activity. But did you know that regular sporting activities not only take care of our physical fitness but also enhance our personality and help in maintaining our mental well-being. To top it all, it’s also a great source of entertainment!

It helps develop leadership qualities too and foster a sense of team spirit. Sports inculcate a sense of competition and help deal with success and failure with a positive spirit. Games and sports also help in the development of social skills. It teaches us to interact with people, communicate with them and collaborate as a team. It fosters collective thinking and harnesses your planning and delegation skills too. It is more joyful than sitting in front of a stationary computer and chatting. Sports make us active, agile and alert. So, don’t just sit and chat during the games period. After all it has so friany benefits for the body, mind and soul.

You have been asked to participate in a debate competition on the topic: “Community service once a week should be introduced in all schools and should be graded”. Write the speech in about 150-200 words either for or against the motion. (10 marks) [CBSE Sample Paper 2015]

Respected Chairperson, honourable judges, and my dear friends, I stand here today to speak for the motion, “Community service once a week should be introduced in all schools and should be graded”.

Community service helps students extend learning beyond the classroom and into the community. It also promotes civic responsibility through active participation in service. It fosters a sense of caring for others, and to develop a habit of volunteer service to those in need. Community service also helps in building character. It teaches selflessness. All these positive aspects show the importance of community service. That is why, it should be introduced in schools and made compulsory. It is a way of giving back to the society. It also helps in keeping children busy and away from addictions.

However, it is important that it be graded. Since it is a compulsion and not a voluntary activity, students will not do it properly and not take it seriously. In order to understand the importance of such things, students should be graded. Just like the other subjects, the grade in community service should also be a criterion for admission to various colleges.

You are Head Boy/ Head Girl of your school. Write a speech in about 150-200 words
on the relevance of good etiquette and cultured behaviour. (10 marks)

Good morning to everyone present here. Today, as the Head Boy of the school, I stand before you to deliver a speech on the relevance of good etiquette and cultured behaviour. I ask you all, what is the purpose of education? Is it to simply read, write and calculate or is it to develop our minds in a way that we can conduct ourselves as responsible citizens who can work for the progress of this great nation? I am sure you would go with the second option. And that is because we all know that to teach manners and the way we treat our fellow beings is what reflects how educated we are.

Be it home, at school, on the street or anywhere else, good manners are respected everywhere and they reflect well on your upbringing. Greeting teachers courteously, showing respect to your seniors and care towards your juniors are only some little ways in which you can become responsible members of the society. Every member of the audience would agree with me when I say that we all always want to be treated with respect. And to get respect, we need to give it. Therefore, it is always my humble appeal to all present here to conduct yourself appropriately.

Imagine you are the Principal of the school. (10 marks) [CBSE Delhi 2015]
A very good morning to my colleagues and dear students. It is more a good morning today, because after so many days, finally today, it is not raining. It is nice to be out in the sun but dear children, we need to be really careful. Recent rains and consequent water-logging have increased the risk of malaria and dengue. Be it your school or home, the conditions are the same. At school, fogging has been done by municipal authorities. As you can see, the school looks cleaner today.

We had employed more workers to get the school compound and its surroundings clean. I know it is still the summer uniform time. But to protect ourselves from dengue and malaria, it is important that full-sleeve clothes are worn. From tomorrow, you all have to wear your winter shirt, along with trousers. Do not worry, all this is only till this risk of dengue and malaria is present. At home also, you can take preventive measures.

Do not allow water-logging in or around your homes, in ditches, drains, potted plants, etc. Maintain cleanliness, so that diseases can be kept at bay. If you are not using water coolers at home, ensure that they are dry and clean. Also try and use mosquito nets, mosquito coils, repellents, etc. After all, prevention is better than cure. Let us endeavour to make us less susceptible to dengue and malaria.

Although students have been using cell phones consistently in their daily lives for almost a decade, schools continue to resist allowing the devices into the classroom. Schools generally grapple with new technologies, but cell phones’ reputation as a nuisance and a distraction has been hard to dislodge. Using information given below prepare a speech in about 150-200 words. (10 marks) [CBSE Sample Paper 2016]

  • encourage the non-educational use of devices in school.
  • they will be a significant distraction for teachers and students.
  • a potential tool for cheating.
  • could encourage cyberbullying.
  • other hand BYOD-Bring Your Own Device is gaining momentum as a learning tool.
  • can be cost effective.
  • banning any type of technology may foster inequity develop rules for how students physically handle the device in the class

Good morning to one and all. Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Shalini, am here to share my views on ‘Mobile technology in schools’. Of late, a new teaching-learning tool has come in our midst—the mobile devices. Critics believe that allowing these devices will only encourage their non-educational use in school. They feel that they will be a significant distraction for teachers and students. They also feel that it is a potential tool for cheating.

But I feel that if used judiciously, its benefits outweigh its negative points. These days, it has stopped being only a toy for entertainment and has in fact gained momentum as a learning tool. Students are more motivated to finish lessons on mobile devices than through traditional textbooks and workbooks. Using mobile technology makes students get more involved in classes. They correct mistakes in real time and are more excited to do the task. It is also cost effective for schools who need not purchase technology for students.

Teacher authority might be undermined when mobile technology is allowed in classroom. But at the end of the day, the job of the teacher is to be the simulator and to guide the students. The only thing that changes is the traditional books. When used the right way, mobile technology has the potential to help students learn more and comprehend that knowledge. Though in India, not every student has a mobile at home. We can use this technology to make learners aware of how mobiles can be used for more than just to play games or to listen to music. Privacy issues should be considered and tracking of cookies should be done. Ail this will facilitate proper learning and help learners not deviate from the goal.

The use of tobacco in cigarettes and other forms is a great health hazard. People do not pay much heed even to the statutory warning on cigarette packs. On the occasion of ‘No Tobacco Day’ write a speech in about 150-200 words about the hazards of tobacco, giving arguments for your stand. You are Shalini/Suraj of Greenfields Public School. (10 marks) [CBSE Sample Paper 2016]

Good morning to one and all. Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Shalini, am here to share my views on the ‘Hazards of Tobacco’. Tobacco no matter which form it is, like cigarettes (even light or filtered), cigars, chewable tobacco or huqqa, is a silent killer. Though tobacco does not kill anyone directly, but the large number of toxic chemicals including nicotine that are found in such products cause various illnesses.

Of these prominent are various pulmonary and pregnancy related complications. The most notable ill effect is cancer. Many people might say that they are healthy and young. Thev would quit later on in life. However, they fail to understand that the smoking is similar to corrosion. It is a slow but an irreversible process. The death rate of smokers is twice than that of non-smokers.

People who smoke compromise with their life. They have bouts of cough with phlegm, feel weak and have a low stamina, become breathless easily and so on. People do not pay much heed even to the statutory warning on cigarette packs. Non-smokers also fall a victim to second hand smoke and suffer from various deadly diseases. At the end, I would like to say, ‘Quit tobacco live long!’ It is the best gift you can give to yourself and your family.

Thank you

Great are the heroes who lay down their lives fighting for the country. Also great are those who without caring for their own safety help people in the hour of need.

Good morning to one and all. Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Suraj, am here to express my views about, ‘Our Indian Army’. Our heroes, the army men fight at the border for the country. Be it rain, snow or thunderstorm, they are forever there to help us lead a safe life. We sleep without fear every night without thinking of an impending attack by the enemy; all thanks to them. These heroes spend sleepless nights at the border to ensure that we sleep peacefully. Not only at the border, these men also coordinate with the civil authorities for search, rescue and relief of people.

Be it the incessant rains in Uttarakhand, Mumbai, Tamil Nadu and Jammu and Kashmir or the floods in Assam and Bihar, we find the army always at the forefront searching and rescuing people. Just like a true friend, they are always there in the hour of need. Due to incessant rains during the past few weeks, the Army has launched ‘Operation Megh Rahat’ in Naoshera, Rajouri, Thanamandi and Poonch districts of Jammu and Kashmir in coordination with the civil authorities for search, rescue and relief of people.

We find many other such programs to help the civilians. Let us not forget these people when we see them on the road. A simple smile and ‘Thank You’ when you see these people will help a long way. It will boost their morale. On this Republic Day, let us all salute these great men who help us live peacefully every day.

Write a speech in 150-200 words on ‘Benefits of early rising’ to be delivered by you in the morning assembly of your school. You are Karuna/Karan, Head Girl/Head Boy. (10 marks) [CBSE Delhi 2016]

Honorable Principal Ma’am, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Karuna, stand before you to express my views on ‘Benefits of early rising’. All of us have heard the famous saying “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man, healthy, wealthy and wise”. But how exactly is rising early beneficial.

An early riser has many advantages over the late riser. In early morning, nature is at its best. Early rising enables us to breathe fresh morning air and enjoy a variety of natural sights which a late riser can’t even dream of. The early riser finds time to do exercises, yoga and meditation, which are most beneficial when done in the morning. It will keep the person calm, happy and energetic throughout the day. Early rising enables us to start our day’s work early when the mind is fresh and there are no distractions. It also helps plan out our day which is not possible for a late riser who would be virtually running to get things done.

It is also said that whatever is studied early in the morning is retained for a longer time. The early riser has no hurry to do his work. They have sufficient time to do their work thoroughly. You can also help your parents with household chores. With all these benefits of rising early, I am sure all of us should start rising early. After all, it is the early bird that catches the worm.

Write a speech in 150-200 words on the topic, ‘Library plays an important role at School’. It is to be delivered in the morning assembly. You are Karuna/Karan, Head Girl/Head Boy. (10 marks) [CBSE Delhi 2016]


Importance of Library

Respected Principal Sir, teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Karuna, stand before you to present my views on the importance of library at schools.

The school library is integral to the teaching and learning process. It facilitates the work of the classroom teacher and ensures that each student has equal access to resources, irrespective of home opportunities or constraints.

The modern trend in education is to encourage students to collect their own information from various sources. From this point of view, reading in a library itself is a part of school education. A library is indispensable for such modern methods of teaching as problem-solving method, project method, assignment methods supervised study, etc. Thus, a library is the hub of intellectual activity in a recognised school and plays the same part, for all subjects, as does a laboratory for science subjects, or a workshop for technical subjects.

Not only for academic purposes, for earnest readers, school library is a boon. In today’s age, where the reading habit is dying fast, it helps in cultivating reading habits from a young age itself. Reading forms character of a person. What better place to start such a good habit, then our very own school library. Let us resolve to use our school library to the full, for that is what can make us not only intellectuals but also good individuals.

Write a speech in 150-200 words on the topic, ‘A student must know how to manage his time’. It is to be delivered in the morning assembly. You are Karan/Karuna, Head Boy/Head Girl of the school. (10 marks) [CBSE (Al) 2016]

Good Morning everyone. Respected Principal Sir, teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Karan, stand before you to express my views on ‘Time management’. This my friends is especially important for all of us. Especially with the board exams and entrance exams round the corner, I feel it is only appropriate to stress on this most important commodity-Time. It is a challenge to score well in board exams as preparation for entrance exams are also going on.

For my friends who would not be taking the boards this year, well, managing time is equally important for all of you as well. Time management is the way one organises and plans how much time is required for specific activities. Good time management leads to greater productivity and efficiency; a better professional reputation and lesser stress. It also leads to better opportunities. Poor time management can lead to missed deadlines, inefficient workflow and a stalled career.

One needs to understand and control the interruptions and judiciously manage time. Set your goals and work hard towards achieving them. The most important way to manage time is to stop procrastinating- Stop saying ‘I will do it later’. There is never a better time than now. I hope we all have learnt the value of time. Now, without wasting more of your precious time, here is wishing all the best for all the exams.

Write a speech in 150-200 words on the topic, ‘Discipline shapes the future of a student’. It is to be delivered in the morning assembly. You are Karuna/Karan. (10 marks) [CBSE (Al) 2016]

Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Karuna, stand before you to express my views on the topic, ‘Discipline shapes the future of a student’. Discipline means order or code of behaviour. It is the key to success. One needs to inculcate a sense of duty and obedience in life to be successful. Self-discipline is essential not only in student life but is important in all walks and ages of life. The absence of a structure in life leads to absolute chaos and confusion in life. Self-discipline needs to be inculcated early in life. It helps to promote restraint, builds self-confidence. It balances personality and inculcates good work ethics.

Discipline is a must whether we are at school or home. In today’s life, where there is a cut-throat competition and time is extremely precious, self-discipline is the most essential quality. Through self-discipline will come concentration which will in turn help a student to scale new heights. Discipline includes a system in our personal and public life. It creates an order, that is easy to follow. With order comes structure, time management, and a systematic rhythm of our lives. So from today, let us aim to be more self-disciplined.

Write a speech in 150:200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly on the topic, ‘Water, a valuable asset, conservation at home and at school’. You are Karuna/ Karan. (10 marks) [CBSE (Al) 2016]

Imagine a time when water becomes so costly that we have to pay to use water for our daily needs. Imagine how it would be to pay through our noses for drops of water. Whether such a situation remains a fantasy or becomes a reality is up to us. Honourable Principal Sir, respected teachers and my dear friends. Today, I, Karuna, stand before you to present my views on the topic ‘Water, a valuable asset, conservation at home and at school’. Water is the unique source of life. Without water, we cannot imagine the life here.

Water is considered an endless source of renewable energy, but what if we keep on wasting it and one day it becomes a non-renewable source. With most of the organisms on this planet dependent on water for living, would it not lead to a war? Already many communities around the world are running out of water. Construction of desalination plants, reservoirs or importing water seem too costly remedies, but this would be the only solution left if we do not take immediate measures to conserve water at home and at school. Simple measures like closing the tap when not in use and saving water from contamination would help. We can save water at home by making smart choices like rainwater harvesting and recycling of water.

Everyone should be aware of the water shortage rules and restrictions and strictly follow in their own area. Water conservation techniques should be promoted on every news media, such as TV, newspaper, radio, FM, community newsletters, bulletin boards, banners, etc. People should be more active in their area to report (to their owner, local authorities, water management of district) any problems related to water loss through broken pipes, errant sprinklers, open hydrants, abandoned free-flowing wells, etc. With all these measures, we would surely be able to conserve water for our future generations.

Write a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly of your school, highlighting the impact of yoga in our life. (10 marks) [CBSE 2019 (1/1/1)]

Good morning friends. Today, I am going to speak on the importance of yoga in a . person’s life. Human beings are made up of three components-body, mind and soul, corresponding these there are three needs-health, knowledge and inner peace. Health is a physical need, knowledge is our psychological need and inner peace is our spiritual need. When all three are present, then there is harmony.

Yoga gives us relief from countless ailments at the physical level. The practice of the postures (asanas) strengthens the body and creates a feeling of well-being. From the psychological view point, yoga sharpens the intellect and aid in concentration; it steadies the emotions and encourages caring for others. The practice of breathing techniques (pranayama) calms the mind. In the realm of the spiritual yoga, brings awareness and the ability to be still. Through meditation, inner peace is experienced. Thus, yoga is a practical philosophy involving every aspect of a person’s being.

It teaches the evolution of the individual by the development of self-discipline and self-awareness. Anyone irrespective of age, health circumstances of life and religion can practice yoga. Yoga helps to discipline our sense of power with the power of our own. If we peep into the benefits of yoga, there are numerous. It improves physical fitness, stress, controls general well-being, mental clarity and greater self-understanding. People of all ages can do yoga and it can also be adapted for people with disabilities or special needs. The asanas enhance muscle strength, coordination, flexibility and can help keep our body fit, control cholesterol level, reduces weight, normalises blood pressure and improves cardiovascular performance.

You are concerned about the cleanliness of parks, roads and even your school premises. In spite of various measures taken by local and school administration, lack of cleanliness is still a problem. You are Namita/Keshav. Prepare a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly of your school on the topic, ‘Cleanliness is the Responsibility of AH’. (10 marks) [CBSE 2019 (1/1/1) Set I]

Good morning, respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends. I am Keshav. I study in Class XII. Today, I would like to speak on the topic, ‘Cleanliness is the Responsibility of AH’. Cleanliness is very important in our life from all the aspects. Cleanliness means absence of dirt, dust, stains and bad smells from the surrounding areas. They say that cleanliness is another name for godliness and rightly so. Nature provides us unadulterated and raw natural beauties. But man has acted as the greatest villain. We have polluted and deteriorated the environment beyond redemption.

Here, I would like to remind you all that inspite of various measures taken by the local and school administration, students are not helping the management in keeping our surroundings clean. They are supposed to support in keeping the school compound and verandas clean. But the findings point out to the contrary. It is sad and shocking that some students of junior classes have decided that it is not their job to keep the s’thool clean and tidy. They litter the school compound and verandas with left-overs after having their lunch.

This act of theirs makes the school look unclean and untidy. Others throw garbage and rubbish not in the dustbins placed in the field but on the floors in the verandas. A few students also dirty the walls by making pencil or ink marks on the walls of the classrooms. Many students don’t observe a decent toilet culture. They don’t help in keeping the campus and the classrooms neat and clean. It is the duty of each and every student to keep the school and its surroundings neat and clean.

The school is a temple of learning. And this temple of learning must maintain its sanctity and cleanliness. We should not litter the school compound, verandas and classrooms with rubbish and left-overs. Let’s make and maintain our school a pleasant place which reflects cleanliness, decency and decorum.
