“Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead”
My heart felt congratulations to all my students as we cross another milestone and usher into the tenth academic year (2023-24) of the school. I am indeed proud of each one of you for your conscientious efforts to glorify the school with your success and achievements in the areas of core academics as well as other co-scholastic areas.
The last academic year i.e. 2022-23 had been challenging for many, as it demanded the recovery of learning losses and gaps exacerbated by the remote learning system adopted as an emergency measure during the crisis period of pandemic. Some had a tough time in regularizing their physical presence in school after a break of two years of pandemic. It was found to be harder for many to concentrate on the lessons taught and pay attention for the entire duration of a class. Writing answers to questions during formal examinations and assessments within the stipulated time had been a serious impediment to good performance. Hours of online gaming, uncontrollable urge to log on to social media has impaired other areas of intellectual, social and life skills.
Students with a strong willpower amalgamated with self-discipline and self-reliance had an edge over others in coping with such difficulties.
However brooding over the past in no way will help you to move ahead in life; instead, you should look forward to a better future taking lessons from the mistakes made. In this journey, you will always find your teachers by your side as they are committed to ensure that learning happens for every child to his/her fullest potential and learning becomes a joyful experience. I convey my best wishes to each one of you for a constructive and promising year ahead.
I conclude with the words of George Bernard Shaw –“Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.”
