Good afternoon respected principal

Good afternoon respected principal, erudite teachers and my fellow students,

I am highly honored to deliver this farewell speech. We are all here to bid farewell to our exceptional teacher and a mentor who retired from active service. Today, I realized how time flies.

It gives me great pleasure to say that we must recognize, respect and appreciate all the valuable skills and knowledge our dear teacher had imparted onto us the future leaders and to thank him for all his efforts and hard work. Of course, I know how painful it is, to say goodbye to someone who is less of a teacher but more of a father. However, we all need to express our sincerest gratitude to him for all his uncommon contributions to realizing the educational programmes and development of the school.

The 35 years he had spent imparting the right skills and knowledge onto the students, seems like it was yesterday he started his teaching career. I have no doubt on my mind to say that he is an achiever, open-minded, generous, knowledgeable, modest, courageous, responsible and highly respected teacher. Yes, we might not have always agreed with him based on the fact that his assignments to students are usually too difficult for us to handle. We usually go extra mile preparing for your assignments just to make sure they match your standards. But we must respect and appreciate the fact that he had being helpful to us in anyway.
