“A failure is not always a mistake.  It may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances.  The real mistake is to stop trying.”

One of the most important things in life is having the will to preserve even when things get tough.  You may have all the strength in the world, but if you do not have the perseverance to push yourself when things get tough, strength means nothing.  One cannot learn to swim without jumping into the water.  You have to take the plunge and learn to gain mastery over life’s circumstance.  You alone can do it.  Your efforts, dedication, hard work, perseverance in capitalizing these opportunities will make success sweeter and more inspirational.

Each one of you has goals: your goal may be to excel in academics, or to make into the school cricket team, or secure yourself a role in leadership.  In order to achieve your goals, you must plan and then work towards the plan to achieve it.  Each one of you has distinct qualities and abilities.  Each one of you has dreams, dreams to make it big! Dreams need plans, plans to become reality.  Your dream, your immediate goal, could be anything.  Life in CVK provides varied ways of achieving your goals and working towards your dreams.  You are going through this school only once.  So get the most out of it.  Remember, what you get out is correlated to what you put in.  Let us make each year a better year in the lives of each of us, through work, through service and by being a positive influence in each one’s life.
