On behalf of Umah’s Daycare, I heartily welcome all of you for this Annual Day Celebration! I might see a distinct and skilled mix of students and the moms and dads who made this occur, have actually come to us from every corner of the city. In the coming days and weeks, you will start building long-lasting relationships for those who are joining us; you will start classes and you will begin to explore ways to complete your days and evenings – the less concrete part of your education here which are absolutely nothing but the student experience.
And for those who are parting us, we make sure that our relationship will stay continued again for the next few years with some co-curricular activities that we have planned here. Aside from the impressive education you will get at Umahs’ Day Care, I can tell you from personal experience that for Umahs’ Pre school graduates, it is extremely the student experience that stays with us the longest.
Having actually started at Umahs’ Daycare, and being a few years into my term as Principal, I covet you and where you are in your lives; I believe back extremely fondly to my very first days as a Pre-School graduate years ago when, like much of you, I got here with a brand-new world of possibilities, relationships, educational experiences and extra-curricular opportunities lying in front of me. Hundreds of Umahs’ daycare trainees dedicate time, energy and skill across the City every year, and this engagement and volunteerism has actually constantly set us apart.
I highly encourage you to get involved. As a number of you know currently, the institution is immensely pleasing to assist and support a fellow person and make their lives much better. I also advise you kids and moms and dads as a community to be formed to be respectful and are – of the neighborhood– to personify the Institutions’s vision as an inclusive and favorable environment that commemorates equality and diversity. Freedom of speech and idea, and the procedures of analysis and criticism are at the heart of this and every great Institution.
Ideas are born and are challenged; some survive and grow; others die. In that spirit, I am going to ask you to do two things this year that may take you outside your comfort level. The first is to experiment with your courses; do stretch yourself and take something that is unfamiliar or challenging-who knows what new doorways this will open for you, or what new way of seeing the world. The second is on a personal level: Some residents who live nearby, at times, been subjected to destructive behavior by a small minority of students.
Unfortunately, an inappropriate behavior of a few can affect the reputation of our country, locally and beyond, and potentially tarnish the value of your degree. I urge you to make safe and responsible decisions about what you do and where you go every day and every night out. I personally expect that you will honour the Student Code of Conduct and respect the rights and values of our neighbours. Finally, I know life is busy and there is a lot of work to be done, people to see and places to be, but remember to take time for yourself and take care of yourself.
There are many supports and services available if you ever need them. We want you to thrive and succeed here, academically, socially and personally. It is a great pleasure as Principal to welcome you all to the beginning of your lifelong association with Umahs, Day Care and I hope to meet many of you in this year of our journey. I wish you all the best for an exciting and rewarding, challenging and stimulating years in this institution, which will be the start of what I hope will be a lifelong experience as members of the Umahs’ family. Thank you.
