Mrs. Veena Goel, Principal of the School, shared deep insights from her rich experience to mentor the young students to stay focused and avoid the distractions that lurk at every corner. Her message was also for the parents to listen to their children as friends and give them quality time.
The resource person, Mr. Lucky Puchhrat, motivational public speaker and a personal management expert, encouraged the students to apprehend and realise their untapped potential. He shared many meaningful tips and real-life examples to make the students understand how to create an extraordinary life for themselves. He rated good communication skills on the priority list of all students who wish to excel in today’s globally interconnected world. He also recommended good reading habits as a tool to learn important life lessons that can open our minds to new ideas. He inspired all with the statement - ‘Be in what you do’ i.e., give your best to every work which you do. “Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose” - a quote by Victor Frank aptly summed up the essence of the workshop. The School is always on the lookout to provide the best resources to empower the students with 21st Century skills.
