Respected principal, Father John Mannarthara CMI, vice principal, Father Johnny Mathew CMI, teachers and all my dear students.
Ten long years have passed. I was there with you all, for almost five years teaching a variety of subjects. In these years we have learnt, we have grown, we have battled and rejoiced together.
My students were angels provided by God to me. Your presence and company gave me immense joy and happiness. It is through you my dear children that we have learnt so much. It is through you we have experienced the joy of school life by being a part of innocent pranks, chatter, laughter, tears and tantrums and mischief. The simple and frank expressions of love revealed in little things that you gifted are gestures to cherish.
The long years spent with you, children I must admit was tough to deal with. At times I might have been a little harsh with you but trust me it was not to hurt you .My aim was to refine you and to fit you into the larger society where you turn out to be great leaders. Today when you stand at the threshold of the institution do not look back at what you have not done but look forward to what you can do in the future, and take with you the fine moments you have cherished here.
Really I can tell you with great pride that school days are the wonderful days in one’s life and more so studying in an institution of repute, Yes, Devagiri CMI Public School. Be proud to be a Devagrian. Let us thank the Creator for what you are today. If you hold up your head high with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed. It is all because of our Principal Father John Mannarthara who has taken care of all your needs, let it be in academics ,sports, arts music, dance and the list is endless …. You have come out with flying colours.
My dear children, life is a challenge. Be passionate about your dreams. Never give up. Look ahead and work hard. Let your words bring happiness to others and your actions bring hope. Be good to people and behave well. Disperse seeds of love and happiness, to bloom and bear fruits and to gather hearts. Do come back share with us the stories of your success. In your success lies our happiness.
Foot prints on sand eventually fade away but those made on the sands of time are etched deeply in one’s memories and in the memories of those near and dear; they create biographies of each individual.
My dear children wish you all a bright future ahead.
Ms. Sunitha P.M
