Every year schools and colleges organise annual day functions and farewell parties. An annual day is celebrated to recognise the achievements of students and the farewell party is organised to bid adieu to the seniors who are spending there last year in the school or college. Generally, farewell parties are a mix of complex emotions, we feel elated for our seniors that there are going ahead and embracing new opportunities but at the same time, we feel sad that we are not going to spend more time with them at school. We will miss their company and their guidance.
To encourage this kind of sharing of feelings between students, schools arrange these farewell parties. If you are the person who is going to host such a farewell party then you need to have a well-structured anchoring script. Here we have given a sample, English anchoring script for a farewell party in school or college for seniors.
This template can be used for or situations like a farewell party at the office or a farewell party for teachers, principles etc. The template is simple, you can modify it as per the situation. In this sample anchoring script, we will give you a mix of all scenarios. We suggest that rather than just copy-pasting it try to learn from it and write your own anchoring script. Add your own experiences, emotions, that will make your script stand out and will make an impact on the program and the people attending it.
Script for farewell party in school or college for seniors
Each day we see the sunrise and sunset. Light always fades to darkness and darkness gives way to new sparkling sunshine in the morning. That’s the rule of the world and today we are also riding a similar roller coaster of emotions.
Today we are gathered here to celebrate the time seniors spent in the school. Though their time at this school is finishing, the same day also welcoming them in their bright future. This is the first step towards their next life, their future, their career and dreams. This is the day to go to flashback and at the same time, this is a day to grab on upcoming opportunities as well as responsibilities. With such a mix of feelings, I would like to welcome you all to this years farewell party.
Very warm welcome morning to honourable principal sir, respected teachers, staff and all my dear friends. I am Sameer Sinha student of class 9th welcome you all to the farewell party.
Today we all gathered here to bid farewell to our seniors with the belief that a new beginning is waiting for them. I can’t resist myself to recite a couple of lines from one of my favourite song, it is from 90 very famous bands called “Westlife”, share how it goes…
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
But we’ve known each other since we were nine or 10
Together, we’ve climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC’s
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
I do share the same feelings, there are a lot of my friends that I will not see next year at our school. I will miss their pranks, their guidance and I will also miss how irritating they were sometimes. That’s how it is, that’s how the friendships are.
Are you all ready for the celebration?…. Great…
We are indeed privileged and pleased to have a respected principal madam and teachers with us. I request our principal to address us on this occasion.
Vote of thanks for farewell party
Now I would like to call upon stage ms Pallavi to deliver the vote of thanks for the day. Let’s welcome her with a big round of applause.
Pallavi: A very warm good morning to all ladies and gentlemen, respected dignitaries, principal, teachers and friends.
“Time flies like a blink of an eye. I feel like it was just yesterday but it’s been two years.”
When I was told to deliver the vote of thanks for the day. I was not sure how two words “thank”, “you” will help me to express what I think about this institution and the seniors; experiences, guidance and the F=friendship they shared with us all. Still, I will try my best.
I would like to take this moment to thank some people wholeheartedly beginning with my teachers. Ms Sharma, I must tell you that you are my favourite teacher, we student do reckon the amount of hard work you put in to make the lectures interesting and playful. We literally wait for your classes. Because of you, a dreaded subject like math has become so simple and interesting to us.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the principal sir for making this institution one of its kind. Sir, because of your initiatives we have top-notch computers labs, we get guidance from the best of the people from the industry. Along with that, your enthusiasm for sports is incredible. You are a visionary who we are very lucky to have as our guiding star.
I would also like to thank the dignitaries for sharing their expertise and letting us know the importance of practical knowledge of the world.
I must thank this institution for shaping our future and personalities. This is not just a building of bricks and mortar, it is a sanctuary of knowledge.
Last but not the least, I would like to thank our seniors whoa are embarking upon their future journey. I would like to wish them the best in their future endeavours. I would not able to express how your guidance in competitive exams preparation helping us.

Note: Here are some extra line that can be fitted in the farewell party anchoring script.
- Goodbyes can be hard but rather than being sad about it let’s see the sunny side. Let’s celebrate, let’s make a party out of it, let’s spend a great time with seniors and wish them a great time ahead.
- fun bit: Let’s make use of the day, we might need senior’s references when we are going to look out for jobs, so let’s make the day special for them.
- Today’s stage is set for making beautiful memories that will last with us for a lifetime.
