Hearty welcome everyone to a new session at the next level. We must note that nature works in a beautiful rhythm… The sun rises and sets; day follows night. Seasons come and seasons go, so do the years. The earth spins along its axis and around the sun. The universe follows this pattern. First day of your school is very important; as important as any exam day or even your birthday! This is the time to buckle up. It is never too late to start moving upward as well as inward. Inward because, it is here that we discover our true selves, our identity as children of God.
Congratulations and cheers to all. You have…
Another chance to improve your overall performance.
Another chance to discover your latent potentials and God given gifts…
Another chance to be more generous,
Another chance to be more forgiving,
Another chance to be more kind…
To succeed in life, we don’t have to be a genius. Everyone is special and born with unique extra-ordinary qualities. Therefore, it is healthy to compete with oneself rather than stray on the way to disappointment with comparison. Each one is best as they are. For instance, fishes are best in swimming but fail to walk, foxes can win in race but cannot fly, and squirrels can easily climb trees but cannot swim… And therefore, we must have faith in ourselves and in all that God has given to us. Strive toward excelling academically and above all, blossom a true human being. We must evolve in character inculcating amicable attitude and values to face an increasingly challenging world. Let us develop traits of sensitivity, resilience, integrity, adaptability, justice, empathy, ethics, service of God… all these are increasingly essential ingredients to live a happy and contented life.
We are lucky to live in a society where equal right to an education for all is a norm of life, but is something often taken for granted. Education opens doors to many opportunities for a challenging, interesting and meaningful life. ‘A child, a teacher; a book and a pen can change the world’ – Malala
Let me express that to build a good character is a level higher than excelling in study. This means – Do the right thing and do the thing right! Make this into a habit and in this self-training, you will soon build yourself a good character. 15 “Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” – Ephesians 5: 15-17.
My best wishes to you. How we rate ourselves at the end of this scholastic year, depends on how we live our today. You are an ambassador of Divine Child Education Campus… in all that you think, say and do. I thank my entire staff (teaching / non-teaching) for their dedication and loyalty towards the Divine Child family. I thank our students for their vibrancy, innocence, simplicity and I also thank every parent, for your ongoing support, care and co-operation towards your children and their well-being.
God be with you in your journey of life. With God on our side, we can make a difference in the world!
God Bless You.
