Dear Students,

As the chairperson of the school board, I would like to welcome you all to a new academic year. I hope you are ready to learn new things, make new friends, and have fun.

I want to share with you some thoughts about the school, education, and tips for being a good human being.

First, the school is not just a place where you study subjects and take exams. It is also a place where you develop your personality, your values, and your skills. The school provides you with opportunities to explore your interests, to express your creativity, and to participate in various activities. The school also supports you with guidance, counseling, and mentoring. The school is your second home, where you are cared for and respected.

Second, education is not just a process of acquiring information and memorizing facts. It is also a process of developing your critical thinking, your problem-solving, and your communication skills. Education helps you to understand yourself, the world around you, and your role in it. Education prepares you for the future, where you will face challenges and opportunities. Education empowers you to make informed decisions, to pursue your goals, and to contribute to society.

Third, being a good human being is not just a matter of following rules and norms. It is also a matter of having a positive attitude, a compassionate heart, and a responsible behavior. Being a good human being means respecting yourself and others, regardless of their differences. Being a good human being means caring for the environment and the resources that we share. Being a good human being means helping those in need and standing up for what is right.

I hope these tips will inspire you to make the most of your time at school and beyond. Remember that you are the future leaders of this world, and you have the potential to make it a better place.

I wish you all the best for this academic year and beyond.

Sunita Mohanty
