Model Answer 1:
Life is full of many happy events and occasions. Thankfully, I have also been blessed to experience some of these happy occasions in my short life, and this cue card topic offers me a perfect opportunity to revisit one such happy occasion today.

Back in my high school days, about 10 years ago or so, I wasn’t exactly known to be a very “strong” young lad, comparing to the other young boys of my age. So, when other school boys were busy, running and playing with each other in a field, I would just feel happy watching them from a safe distance most of the times. Sometimes, I even used to ignore the requests of my game teacher to take part in physical activities of my school, which was frowned upon by my fellow students and my game teacher alike. Of course, I had tried to tell them that I didn’t like any sports, that required physical labour, but they were never in a mood to listen to me. Instead, they all decided to ridicule me because of my reluctance to become physically active. Needless to say, I felt hurt and embarrassed because of their unjustified “ridicule”.

Anyway, then came an opportunity to prove my value to my school one day by taking part in an inter-school debate competition. Initially, my school authority didn’t want to include me in the debate team, but my school advisor decided to give me a chance due to my persistent request. So, my team and school supervisor, a person who I had always admired because of his kind words to me, left our town to take part in the debate in another city. In that debate, my school didn’t only win the competition, but also I became one of the top performers.

Anyway, I felt really happy after winning the competition because I wanted to prove my “worth” as a good student of my school, if not as an “athletic”. Besides, I felt very proud of my achievement because I helped my school to become champion in the debate competition for the first time.



Sample Answer 2: 
Last month my family members and I were so happy because I won a prize in college. Everyone smiled and were happy for my success. In fact, it was beyond their imagination that I could secure a price in such a tough competition. Besides, it was a matter of pride for them as well. None of them expected me to have the prize in this 300-meter race. So, when I returned home with the prize, they smiled at me pleasantly. I was very excited and happy too.

I returned home after competing in the competition held at my college. In fact, it was all of a sudden that I took part in the annual sports competition in the college. It was a tougher completion indeed for me as I did not have any prior preparations for the events. And when I returned with a prize, it made my day. 

When I returned home, I met almost every one of my family. I had my parents, uncles and aunts, cousins and my grandma. Among them, my grandma was the happiest person. She blessed me saying that someday I should be a great sportsman (though I do not have such intentions). But I was pleased to know that everyone is happy with the success I achieved. that made me even happier.

The smiles on their faces represented affection and love towards me. None of the family had such a success before. Actually, they do not prefer to take part in physical activities like sports. They love to spend time watching television and gossiping. So, when they came to know about my success, they really became happy to know about it. Consequently, the smiled at me. I was glad too that they love me much. That was a rare success for me and it made me happy to a great extent.
