Distinguished guests, faculty and staff, parents, graduating students, ladies and gentlemen, a pleasant day to all of you. It is a great privilege to stand before you today. Before I begin, let us all give a big round of applause to ourselves for a job well done! Today, we celebrate the 10th year anniversary of this prestigious institution. For the last ten years, this school made its name among other institutions in Asia by standing strong and producing quality graduates. In addition, it has earned remarkable accreditation for the last four years.
It is also the first school in Asia to get the piolet for Grades 11th and 12th. Indeed, this institution proved itself as one of the best in Asia in just a short period of time. To all our graduates, I have but one advice to all of you: DREAM. Whether you want to be a doctor, an engineer, a teacher or whatever career path you want to pursue someday, remember to reach for your dream. If you continue dreaming, you will learn to persevere, discipline yourself, and do your very best regardless of the challenges that may come your way.
While you dream, remember the things you learned from your mentors, parents, and friends. Remember not just the lessons you learned from your textbooks but also those you learned from the outside world. Lastly, your dream must be coupled with prayers. Prayer is power and it will give you more confidence and faith in making your dream a reality. To all the faculty members and staff, graduating students, parents, and all who are present in this memorable day, thank you very much for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire and touch your lives. God bless us all.
