Principal Speaks

A Principal’s message always presents a problem to the writer. Should it be addressed to pupils, to parents our should it present on image to those outside the school?

A wide spectrum of events, of persons, of personalities and reactions is available within any school community. On the one hand, we can consider the proud parent who can come to school to see his son or daughter presented with honour for special merit or laurel brought to the school and family, whilst on the other hand we can have a parent who broken heartedly seeks advice about a teen-age child who is emotional and gets influenced easily. There can be a child who can say, “Why do you care about us, when our parents don’t? There can be other child who complains that his parents” drive him up the wall” with their over-interest. Our school is now almost 10 years old and its traditions are being formed and developed and it continues with it.

My message urges on honest appraisal of us and our actions. It is directed at you students, your parents and indeed at our own school policy. The point I wish to make is that you young people are still moulding your future. To a large or lesser extent you come under the influence of parental and school authority. The development of your self-discipline and moral growth is the full responsibility of all of us, student, parent and school alike. We aim to give you as much of the desirable freedom as we can, but as the part of society we must realize clearly that freedom does not mean the license to do what we want, but requires responsible actions as well. I feel that sometimes we are not able to give you sufficient and definite guidelines on which to base your judgments and to set your standards.


Let us all be quite definite about our standards, about what is right, what is wrong and what is just. You the students, on the whole, are a credit to your school and your parents. You have the potential to develop into happy, social beings. Let us not hesitate, by our own continued good example, to set the basis for a good future and wholesome society, we can do this by behaving as positive human beings with a noble aim in life. My message is a simple one. To all of you I say “participate in your school’s activities and use your talents to the full.” Give good example-Do your best but know what your best is.
