Goodbye, Grade VIII

Since the term-ending exams are over, its goodbye grade 8, and he-llo grade 9!

We had a class party and we got all our marks today. Now, it’s 2 weeks of undisturbed holidays.

The class party was awesome and we feasted on cupcakes, pizza, donuts, pakodas, garlic bread, noodles, chicken sandwiches, kheer and cinnamon rolls. Rakshanda shook the Pepsi bottle, and when she removed the cap, she got sprayed.

This morning, when I was on the stairs, I met our library teacher, Yamuna ma’am. She asked me to meet her in the library after a few minutes. When I did she handed me something in gift wrapping. On opening it in class, we found that it was a really pretty purse. I had donated 100+ books to the library this year.

We all felt that 8th grade had gone way too quickly, but it was also one of our best school years. It was hard to believe one full year had gone by. Now again, new teachers, new books, new friends. Especially when we heard the fact that there would not be a 9-D, only a 9-B since both classes were getting joined to form one.


I had bought delicious cupcakes for the party from ‘Yummy Tummy’, a shop for anyone with an extremely sweet tooth. Everyone loved it.
