I'd like to welcome you all to this year's goodbye celebration with such a mixed bag of emotions. A very warm greeting, sir, to the honorable principal, respected instructors, staff, and all my beloved friends this morning. My name is Sameer Sinha, and I am a ninth-grade student. I cordially invite you everyone to the goodbye party. It will be held after the school assembly today at four o'clock in the playground.
Now, as you all know, this is a sad day for me too. The day I leave for good, my heart will be shedding tears of happiness and sadness simultaneously. But still, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you. You have been so kind to me over the last nine years. You have taught me many things throughout our interactions - some were good lessons, others weren't so great. But anyway, they helped me grow up into a responsible young man.
This school has played an important role in my life. I can remember every single moment I have spent here with my friends. We have gone through so much together, laughed so hard we cried, fought countless battles, and learned from our mistakes. This place is special for me because it was here that I met my best friend, Rajan. He is one of the three people in this world who knows me better than myself. Without him, this farewell party would not be happening today.
Finish the letter.
A very warm greeting, sir, to the honorable principal, respected instructors, staff, and all my beloved friends this morning. My name is Sameer Sinha, and I am a ninth-grade student. I cordially invite you everyone to the goodbye party. Today, we are all assembled here to say goodbye to our seniors, with the hope that a fresh beginning awaits them.
Anchor 1: Welcome Note Everyone, good morning. It is an honor to welcome you all on this day when we will be honoring the accomplishments of our school or college. I greet you all on behalf of my family and my co-host. Your presence is certainly a blessing to us.
Anchor 2: Thank You Notes Everyone, thank you for joining us today. We are honored by your company at this special event. As we begin our celebration, let me take a moment to say how proud we are of our students for their achievements this year. Their success reflects well upon our school or college. I also want to acknowledge some staff members who have been with us since the beginning of our program. They have played important roles in its development over the years.
Now, without further ado, let's get started with the ceremony!
Finally, I want you to appreciate this time to the best. This morning is yours, and it is a significant occasion for you all. Also, I'd want to thank everyone for offering this wonderful chance and forum. It was a joy to share my opinions with you all and to greet you all here. I hope you will enjoy these last days with me.
Now, back to business...
You can unfreeze the moment by doing anything you have done before you started thinking about leaving; just don't think about it too much. For example, if you walk around the block when you wake up, then go about your day as usual, you won't feel like you are missing out on anything because you are not thinking about leaving.
If, on the other hand, you stay in bed and watch sunrises until you forget about your job, that might be taking things a little too far. But maybe you should get more sleep?
The most effective way of stopping yourself from dwelling on something is by doing something else. If you're feeling sad about saying goodbye to your colleagues, go and see some music concerts or visit some museums. That way you'll feel like you're still living your life while at the same time remembering what is important to you.
Last but not least, remember that there is no right or wrong way of dealing with grief.
If you are the one hosting such a goodbye party, you must have a well-structured anchoring script. We have included a sample English anchoring script for a senior goodbye celebration in school or college. You can modify this script according to your requirement.
Good luck with your farewell party and thank you notes!
A goodbye is also a statement of well wishes after the end of a relationship. If you are leaving a job after a long time, your coworkers may give you a goodbye party. Farewell is a phrase, like "goodbye," but it's also a noun—if you want to depart quietly, you don't enjoy protracted farewells. A final farewell is called a testament.
The traditional Chinese farewell was called ta chuan (not to be confused with tao chuan, which is the way to say goodbye in Mandarin). It consisted of three parts: nei jing wu wei (literally, "neighborly words of warning"), gong xi (salute), and dou fu (farewell gift).
In modern times, the farewell has been reduced to a simple handshake or hug. However, it is still appropriate to send someone off with some thoughtful words of advice or encouragement.
Farewells can be written or spoken. In letters, an informal farewell will do; in person, a more formal one is required. Whether writing or speaking, be sure to express all that you feel needs to be said. The point of a farewell is not only to tell someone "good-bye" but also to show them how much they mean to you.
Dear [Recipient's Name], I'm writing this as a parting letter to you. It makes me very emotional, yet I felt compelled to write it. You have become like a member of my family since you have been in this room with me for roughly (name the days/months) and have remained for so long. When I moved out, I knew that I would never forget about you and that we would always be friends. Well, it seems like it's time for us to go our separate ways but not without saying goodbye to each other.
You are welcome to stay here as long as you want. My boyfriend is in an album on my bedside table; please take him with you when you leave. He doesn't like to part from me even though I've told him many times that we will see each other soon.
I love you and hope you have a great life after me. Please don't be sad because I'll be fine. I'll still be friends with you even though we aren't together anymore. Good luck in finding someone who will love you like I do now that I have found my true soul mate.
Sincerely, [Your Name]
P.S. Don't forget to feed my cat when you visit her. Her name is Tia and she's very cute. She looks just like a tabby but with white paws and ears.
