"Laugh and grow strong." -- St. Ignatius of Loyola
Here's to all my dear ones: those who have already moved out to see this world, those who are preparing to do so and those who are yet to join us!
I know I have been telling these same things to you, over and over again, possibly boring you to death...but i believe in them with all my heart... therefore today too..and sorry if you get a sense of deja-vu.
It's very important for you to realise and remember that YOU are destined for GREAT things. What you learned here is just a start. There is a world of learning, yet ahead. That being said, on a more serious note, I emphasize on loving life and enjoying every bit of it. The lessons will come in time. I guess what I am saying is, "Be carefree; but carefully." Trusting you will remember and cherish memories of your school and teachers and will carry them wherever you go.
Remember, your words will be my words, your actions will be my actions, your failures and successes will be my failures and successes. I will always be in you. A word to my teachers too: we are bound to provide an atmosphere for discovery, where students are encouraged to be creative and curious. We are thus, devoted to preparing our students for life. Your efforts have been commendable so far. Keep up the good work.
I would like to end with the words of Robert Southey:
That will not perish
In the dust.'
With lots of love and best wishes
