Speaking on the occasion Shashank Vira, spoke extensively on the importance of making the most of the present in order to prepare them for the changed world they will grow up in. He said that it is most important to seize the moment and give it one’s one hundred per cent so that there is no room for regret. Preparedness for a more competitive and tougher world, honing one’s capabilities, creating a conducive and concrete platform for growth is the need of the hour.
Mr. R P Devgan, Headmaster, Yadavindra Public School, Mohali, said that it was his belief that a school is not simply a building or an institution, but one that has a character and an individuality of its own which is largely created by the ideology, good practices and the experience of its team of educators and support staff. He expressed that the world needs not only well-educated and intelligent people, but also people who are considerate and compassionate. I would love to see our students become moral and intellectual leaders, people of dignity, honesty and compassion who make a positive difference to the world. We need to guide students to be independent in their thinking and be strong enough to stand by what they know is right.
