He filled it. Then we entered the Principal’s office. My father gave the form to him. He looked at the form and struck a bell. At once a peon came in. He ordered him to take us to the staff room. The peon led us to the room where I found the teachers round a long table.
My tutor gave the form to one of them. The teacher put my knowledge to test in English. He found me fit. Another teacher gave me five sums to solve. I solved them easily. Both the teachers wrote something on the form. Again my father entered the Principal’s office. He ordered for my admission.
My father deposited my dues in the office. I was sent to IX- B classroom with a chit. I went into the classroom and took my seat in the last row.
In front of me there was a big blackboard on the wall. Near it there was a decent chair and a table for the teachers on a raised platform. After a few minutes a teacher entered the classroom.
I gave the chit to him. He wrote my name in the register. The teacher was an interesting fellow. He passed a few funny remarks. At the recess bell we rushed out of classroom . It was the leisure time. Some boys approached me. They cracked jokes.
One of them said, “From which jungle are you coming ?” I was silent. Fortunately three boys ran for my help. They took me round the school building. They showed me reading room and library. I found the school hall beau tifully decorated with paintings.
As the bell rang we were again in the classroom. Four teachers attended their periods but none taught us. At 12-30 the last bell went. The classes were over. When I reached home, I was quite glad.
I told my mother about the new school. She was glad to hear the account of my first day.
