School Scene During The Recess
The real refreshing break that a student gets during his busy day at school is at the recess period. Students wait anxiously for this period. At the stroke of the first bell, students rush out of their respective classrooms. Most of them carry their lunch boxes with them. They quickly occupy their favorite places in the school garden or on the grounds around the school They sit in groups of three or four and take their lunch. Those who have not brought their lunch play in the ground. Here they also wait for others to join them. A few senior students go to the library to read newspapers and magazines. Others sit inside the classroom trying to finish various assignments given by the teacher. Teachers, on the other hand, take some much-needed rest. Some of them drink tea and eat snacks. While the others just sit back and chat or read some magazines. A school during recess is a hive of activity Students can be seen playing, running, or simply walking. Petty hawkers selling ice-creams, fruits, and sweetmeats do a roaring business during this period. A small crowd of students, buying little refreshments, can be seen around them. In all a school during recess is very different from a school during class times.
