All the invited Guest!
Ladies and Gentlemen!
It is a great sense of humility and respect to all our parents and invited guest gathered here in this great occasion, on behalf of my humble self and my graduating colleagues, I heartily welcome each and every one of you and thank you for scarifying your time to attend this year 2019 Prize Giving and Graduation Ceremony. I feel honored and indeed very happy to address this great gathering, permit me to go on a memory lane, exactly one year ago the school authority appointed me to be the senior prefect of this dynamic school today I am giving my last speech in this exalted position. We are all familiar with the Holy Book which says that, “there is a time for everything, time to born and a time to die”. Yes! This is the time to leave the sense for others, but as I graduate today, I would like to use this opportunity to point out some achievement made so far since we were appointed prefects of this great institution.
We have supported our teachers with the followings;
1. We have helped our teachers to coordinate the little ones when they are out for prayers
2. We have assisted the staff to monitor the pupils when they are out for break
3. We have also joined the teachers to ensure that no pupil uses Pidgin English while in the school.
IMPORTANCE OF ICT IN THE SCHOOL
We are no more in the 90s Technology has advanced and that is why the school management has made online channel available for you to pay school fees, check midterm result, class work, assignments, end of the term result,
track academic performances and moral behavior of your children anywhere, anytime
The use of mobile technology cannot be over emphasized. Some of our parents cannot lay hands on their primary school results let alone Nursery school results this could be as a result of flood , fire outbreak or moving from one location to another but now with the help of ICT you can access your result anytime and anywhere in the world. That is the more reason why the Semeridian Modern School has provided access to you on your mobile devices for quick and optimized navigation
1. I also urge our parents to support the use of ICT in the school and provide all the necessary writing and reading materials as it’s required by the school authority to maintain the good testimonies of the school.
2. Lateness to school – Some of our parent dress their children shabbily and bring them to school late.
As I live this stage today I plead with our parent to look into the above mentioned issues in other to prepare their children for better and greater tomorrow. Before I let my emotion sweep me away, I would like to tell my classmates who are sitting here well equipped to face the next level of academic experience, thank you for all the memories, the play, the fight, the team efforts, the assignment, the laughter, the photo and all the nice time we had together. I don’t think I would forget this awesome experience
To bring this address to a close, I thank the school authority and all the pupils for giving me this privilege to lead and gain a lot of experiences from leadership and all that the school has invested in us both morally and academically which had made me to stand boldly before you today, my special appreciation goes to my proprietor Mr. DC Solomon whom we call him uncle Sunday who is committed to the academic excellent of each and every one of us.

Staff here present,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
My heart is filled with praises and thanksgiving to the Almighty God as I welcome all of you to this great occasion. What started as a dream has come to an amazing realization. These pupils graduating today were admitted by us, some of them could hardly speak but today they are graduating after developed under our watchful eyes. The joy of every parent is to give birth to a child and to watch that child grow physically, morally and academically. Your presence here today is already an indicator that this event is a huge success.
Education therefore, is a process that seeks to equip a child with appropriate information, knowledge, skills values and attitude necessary to live a productive life in the society. A nation development is directly proportional to her achievement in education. Consequently, importance of education for human and economic development can never be over emphasized. Right from the cradle, teachers are involved in shaping and making individuals (children). Today, the demands of modern society detect that parents leave their homes early in the morning, only to return late at night. During this long period of absence, it is the school and teachers that take responsibilities of caring, educating and over-all nurture of the child, by implication school and teachers play a great role in determining the nature and dynamic of any society.
