“Success comes to those who work hard and stays with those, who don’t rest on the laurels of the past.”
In the words of Oscar Wilde, “The aim of life is self-development to realize one’s nature perfectly.” Over the years, as a Principal I have realized hat if the fertile soil of the mind is enriched with the values of love, Kindness and Patience, the saplings of good education and character will grow into strong trees and bear good fruits.
Aristotle once said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our children ahead with of moral values and principles.

I would like to share the pencil parable with you to highlight how we can grow with God and man… The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.
“There are 5 things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “Before I send you out into the world. Always
remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”
- One :
- You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.”
Lesson for us: We will be able to do many great things, but only if we allow ourselves to be held in
God’s hand. And allow other human beings to access us for the many gifts we possess.
- Two :
- You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.”
We will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life,
but we’ll need it to become a stronger person.
- Three :
- You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.” We will be able to correct any mistakes we
- Four :
- The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.” The most important part of us will always be
what’s on the inside.
- Five :
- On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must
continue to write.” On every surface we walk through, we must leave our mark. No matter what the
situation, we must continue to do our duties.
The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.
Always remember them and never forget, and we will become the best person we can be.
