“The function of Education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus Character that is the goal of true education”
In our darkest times we are willing to go to the deepest, for we are never very reflective when life is good but when the storms of life engulf us we step out of ourselves and wonder why life is unfolding thus this leads to remarkable learning and growth. Life indeed is all about growth and steering through these storms with determination and grit, life for each one of us changed with the unexpected arrival of Covid 19.
Making last year and this year too rather challenging we however learnt to survive and bravely ride over this wave of difficult days with Covid 19. We had to introduce online classes but God willing all this will be behind us soon. However we learnt two very important lessons from it one being that we can never take anything for granted and the second one, that we can overcome all odds, brave any storms if the ‘Sacred Heart Family works as a team’.
We are so blessed to have you dear students in our lives, you are our greatest gift to love nature and cherish. You must always remember that each one of you is an individual with your own uniqueness. It has been rightly said that ‘he who walks in another’s tracks leaves no footprints’ so never surrender your individuality be what you are this is the first step towards learning better than who you are for every human being is intended to have a character of his/her own, to be what no others are and to do what no other can do, you have your special ‘Excellence’
In order to succeed in life dear students you must have a goal, an aim in life. Irrigate your mind with fresh ideas, new goals and recharge fresh motivation believe that today is the first day of the rest of your life. The prize of success is the dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen. We all live under the same sky but don’t have the same horizon, tap every ounce of your strength towards Excelling in every field Academics and Extra Co curricular activities. True vision is always two fold it involves emotional comprehension, as well as physical perception, use these tools well. Dear children always remember that it is a rough road that leads to the heights of success. Dream lofty dreams for every dream precedes the goal and work hard, for this alone is the key to what you shall at last unveil.
In the journey that is laced beautifully with triumphs would not have been possible without you. I thank you dear parents, for your generosity in time, talents and resources. Thank you for constantly supporting us in every step we take and reposing your confidence in us. The Sacred Heart Team would not accomplish what we do without your help. I deeply cherish the revered bond we have formed with you over the years. Thank you for entrusting us with the future of your children, for entrusting us to mold and sculpt their minds, enrich their souls and ignite the spark of life long learning in them.
I would like to thank our teachers for their unstinted support, hardwork, dedication and the willingness to always walk that extra mile for the betterment of your students, Dear teachers you are the strong pillars on which the foundation of this institution stands. Time is change, transformation and evolution you have proved how easily you can adapt to this change.
In the end dear teachers, parents and students I wish you all every success and happiness this academic year. God bless you all, may we grow from strength to strength and always work together taking our school to sublime heights.
