My dear students, the world today demands much more than academic excellence as a pre-requisite for one’s social survival and success. If there is anything that marks a successful person, it is his/her willingness to learn and adapt to change. The key to success lies in your own hands.
If you are keen, the door to knowledge will be wide open for you. You can grow up as a citizen of the human race, with a heart to overlook petty differences and a resolve to make the world a better place to live in. You can gain wisdom to understand the lessons from life that need to be valued and realize those that are worthless to be discarded. Undeniably, you can develop your individuality in your present environment which will create you into the finest character you are capable of being. Therefore, be diligent. Be inquisitive. Be enlightened.
We wish our senior students every success in their examination and trust that next year will give them that happiness and success they truly deserve. Let those who can lead be such a leader that dedicates his/ her goal to help others seek the truth. Yet for those of us who wish to follow, be a loyal follower able to discriminate between who is worth following and who is not.
Finally, life is like a blank canvas waiting on you to fill it with the colours of the rainbow. Write your own story and follow your heart.
Dare to dream.
