I am extremely honoured to have the chance to address you in this prestigious moment when our institution, VC Kumaran Memorial School celebrates its 33rd Annual Day today. This is so precious moment for us because aside from the fact this function underlines our school’s successful back-to-back 33 years in its realm of imparting education, this dais is also going to witness the showcasing of talents of the young-buds of this school and the prize giving ceremony to the best students in various spheres.
It is always a pleasure to be able to address young minds. Children are our tomorrow – our future. Bright faces that I see here today receiving prizes and evincing their talents will be the citizens of tomorrow. They may tomorrow grow up to be Einsteins, Rabindra Naths, Gandhis, Abdul Kalams & Kishore Kumars or they may just turn out to be a burden on the society, stragglers in the race of life waiting for someone to give them a job. What our children are going to be in future is what we make of them.
The talents they demonstrate here are the proof that they have the potentiality to be the useful citizens of the future. The duty which is conferred up on me here is to welcome everyone to this grand celebration. Our chief guest this year, is such a philanthropist who doesn’t need a formal introduction at all. He is the chairman of Kidney Federation of India, a promising organization/foundation which promotes donating internal organs after your death. The most important fact is that he proved himself as an epitome for others to follow, by donating his-own kidney.
I consider it is not only my privilege but the honour for our entire school to host him as a dignitary and the inaugurator of our priceless function today. I cordially welcome Fr. Davis Chirammel to the celebration. Next, I would like to welcome our “Guest speaker” today. Being the member of District Consumer Protection Council, he has given a lot of invaluable advices and services and spread the awareness of consumer right. I proudly welcome Adv. A. D. Benny onto the function. The next one I would like to elcome to this function is the president of the meeting who need not be acquainted to the members and well-wishers of VC Kumaran memorial school. He is our Academic Director and is the former principal of IES Chittilappilly. I bide a hearty welcome to Dr. P. K. Sivanand to the ceremony. Our most honourable Chairman, the founder and patron, and the lifeblood of our school Mr. V. K. Chandradas is the next to be welcomed. Dearest Sir, I welcome you in my humble words to this most prestigious programme.
Next in the list to welcome is the backbone of this school, the most beloved and respected Reshma ma’am. Dearest ma’am, Please accept my welcome to the feast. Again, I would like to welcome all the dearest parents who have constantly extended their love and support to all the high prospects of this school and to each one of its faculty. And last, but not the least, I would like to welcome all the teachers and students, who are the part and parcel of this institution in my modest words. I hope and request your benign cooperation throughout this programme for its grand success.
