It gladdens my heart to learn that the college has completed one more year of continued progress and growth in all areas of its activity.
Well done. Let me congratulate the Principal and all others involved in this challenging task of shaping the institution in its pursuit of excellence. I am sure there will be continued progress and we will have much more to show at the end of the year.
It is my duty to express our gratitude to our management for their support and encouragement. I sincerely thank our Faculty and non-teaching staff members for their dedication and hard work. I convey special word of thanks to the students, especially for this batch and good wishes for their success.
At this point, my thought goes to the future and I ask myself, are we doing something other than training them as teachers? Do we teach them to discover themselves and to understand that their job is not merely to teach but to instill the need for character and discipline, which will build up a structured society? Let us look beyond teaching profession, open the hearts and minds of those we train.
