A Letter to My Students – After Attending Their Award Presentation

Dear Children

Congratulations to all of you who have received the awards on this very day.

You may not be in the top 10% cohort in your schools. Probably may not be even in the top 25% for some of you. But when I see all of you, my pride for you always fills my heart.

For the past 8 months, I saw that you never took things for granted. What’s more, you understood and appreciated the effort your families and the centre had put together so that you could focus in your studies.

In return, you were responsible for your work and attendance.

When you did not know how to do something, you would not say “I don’t know.” Neither did you expect others to do it for you. When I was busy with your other classmates during lessons, none of you demanded my immediate attention and complained the lack of it.

With a new beginning of your life, I wish you all the best and keep up the good work!
