1 Minute Speech for Children on the Importance of Obeying Traffic Rules

IMG_20160214_104404866Good morning friends,

What is that in bold and black that you notice in newspapers every morning? It is the heart-breaking news of people getting badly injured or losing their precious lives in road accidents.  Sadly, accidents have become so common place.

Why is this so? Reasons like using mobile phones while driving, careless overtaking, drinking and driving, bad conditions of roads, stray dogs, blaring loudspeakers in busy junctions, flex boards curbing visibility, not dimming lights at night, crossing speed limits, and even malfunctioning of traffic signals have all been identified as cause of accidents. These are all true.

But as children, what is our responsibility in preventing road accidents? Most importantly, we need to grow up as a generation obeying traffic rules. This is part of our civic responsibility as Indian citizens:

We need to learn to stop when the light turns red.

We need to learn to stop spitting outside from public transport.

We need to learn to use zebra lines while crossing the road.

At least we can stop throwing banana peels to the road from our cars.

Well, I agree that there is nothing new to know in all this. But we need to discipline ourselves to respect the Law and do the common sense things well. We need to discipline ourselves to wear helmets and use seat belts. We need to learn to manage our emotions and not contribute to road rage while stuck in traffic jams.

Above all, we need to learn to smile when someone raves mad at us and verbally abuse us for no valid reasons while driving. I do admit that we are not angels to do that.

Still let us strive our best to make our roads a safe place to travel.

Together, we can!

Thank you.

1 Minute Speech for Children on How to be Safe on Social Media!

Respected teachers and dear friends,

Good morning to one and all.

Social networking sites such as Facebook and instant messaging services like WhatsApp have made building relationships easy, instant and colourful. Yet children should not close their eyes to the dangers in it.

First and foremost, never add a stranger to your friend list. You have no way no knowing what his or her true identity is. He can be a link in an online racket or he can be part of a terrorist organisation. You never know.

Secondly, never reveal private information regarding your identity or location. For example, if you make it easy for strangers to know who your friends are, which are the places you hang out with them, and what your pastimes are, someone can easily track you. Therefore make sure that you fine-tune your privacy settings to make it nearly impossible for strangers to gather information about you.

Thirdly, do not share private photographs on social media. As a warning, know that if your smart phone is given for software upgrade or repair, a techie with wrong motive can easily transfer all your photos including deleted ones and chat logs. Several instances of such photos and chats being used for slandering people have been reported in recent times.

Finally and most importantly, if at all anyone tries to blackmail you do not panic and do not try to fight it alone. The blackmailers would warn you to keep your mouth shut. Do not listen to them. Instead seek the help of your parents and trusted teachers at once. Open up and talk. They will help you. And make sure you remember– suicide is NOT an option!

Let me conclude by asking you to do one thing: If someone adds you to a chat group where you feel the content shared or discussed is inappropriate for you, exit the group immediately!

Yes friends, it is true that social media offers us a sense of freedom and instant communication. But use these benefits with responsibility and caution!

Thank you.



1 Minute Speech for Children on Character

Respected teachers and dear friends,

Good morning to one and all.

Wisdom in life is about building on rock rather than on sand.

If you want others to hold you in high esteem and you want to influence people in a positive way, building a good character should be a high priority.

First and foremost,
honesty and integrity should be the bedrock on which you build character.

A man of truth is bold as a lion and lives above fear for he has got nothing to hide as he walks in the light.

character is built by a positive attitude.

Your faith is what helps you triumph over negative circumstances as you trust God to make all things work together for good.

character is built upon the sacrifice one makes to make this world a better place.

When you do deeds of care and compassion, your lives will shine its brilliance long after your work is done.

Yes, let me conclude
by saying that reading, culture, education and technology fails if it does not contribute to building character.

Today, the world is not in need of persons with more money, mind and muscle power; but it needs men and women of excellence and character.

Hope young friends that you will answer this call and leave your names etched on rock.

Thank you.

1 Minute Speech for Children on Healthy Habits

Respected teachers and my dear friends,

A warm good morning to one and all.

It is said that you sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.”
Yes friends, our habits form our future. So let us cultivate healthy habits.

There are four kinds of habits. They are:
All of them are important for children.

Spiritual habits
include praying to God when we get up in the morning and thanking him for the gift of a new day. We should also pray when we start to study to ask God to give us wisdom to learn.

Physical habits
include brushing our teeth in the morning, taking bath properly and wearing clean dress. We should also spend some time playing in the outdoors so that our bodies stay healthy and strong.

Educational habits
include reading and studying well, listening to teachers, doing homework and going to school regularly. We should try to take part in all the activities of the school as it will help to improve our personality.

Social habits
include obeying our parents, respecting elders, smiling when we greet people and being happy. These help to develop leadership qualities too.

To conclude, healthy habits will help us to excel in life. Only children with excellence and character can build a strong nation.

Like good friends, healthy habits will stay with us always.

Thank you.

1 Minute Speech for Children on Respect

Respected Teachers and my dear friends,

A warm good morning to one and all.

We all use the word respect quite often. But what does it mean? It means esteem for the worth or excellence of a person.

First of all we should respect ourselves. Each one of us is created in God’s image. Each one of us is unique—a very special creation of God. Therefore each one of us should value ourselves highly.

Secondly we should respect our elders. It includes our parents, elders, and teachers. In doing so we are respecting not only their age but their wisdom and the good they have done to society.

Thirdly we should respect the law, our government, our nation, our national anthem and our national flag. We should always remember with thanks all those people who sacrificed so much for our nation’s freedom.

Finally let it be noted that love and respect go hand in hand. The Bible says that a husband should love and respect his wife and the wife in turn must respect her husband.

So let us respect all people who come our way–even those who hold a different opinion than ours!

Thank you.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband” — St. Paul (Ephesians 5:33 Bible).
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as your live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers” — St. Peter (1 Peter 3:7 Bible).
