The name of our school is Modern Public School. It is situated at Sec 6 in the District of Cuttack. The recess in our school begins after the first four periods.
It begins at half-past one and ends at 2 P.M. Hence, it lasts for half an hour. The scene during this recess hour is a scene of a mirth and merriment. Student burst into great rejoicing after three hour’s confinement inside the classrooms.
During the recess, students move about. They move in twos and threes and chat among themselves. Some students stand before the school notice-board. Some purchase Tiffin from a sweets-man seated near the school gate. Some gather round the wireless receiver and listen in the radio. The little boys divide themselves into several groups and play Ringball and Kabadi.
Inside the Teachers Common Room, some teachers are found reading newspapers. Some are busy writing letters. Some are seen forwarding applications.
Inside the Headmaster’s Office, the Headmaster seems busy in reading the applications of students. The office-clerk stands beside him to receive some direction. Two or three teachers sit before the Headmaster for some advice or order Guardian may be found talking about his ward. The Headmaster’s office is found busier than ever. When the bell rings to make the recess over everything comes to normal.
The scene in a school during the recess hour is no doubt a happy scene. It is a sight for gods to see.
