CONCLUSION
Now the school report. I know the Principal’s report is not a very welcome interlude during the cultural programme. I have tried to trim it but excessive trimming of the school report is like presenting your score card after deducting some marks yourself. Well, that was in a lighter vein. We all know, presentation of the school report on its Annual Day is an enduring tradition to take time to pause, turn around to look at the fruitful year gone by, achieving both the expected and unexpected, while setting various milestones and then synergizing ourselves to move ahead to face the challenges in the coming year, with a positive attitude. But I am not going to read out all the details of the report right now. The detailed report of the Jayantian vista will be shown to you during the programme on the screen. Let me avail this opportunity to express and extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to all who in one way or the other helped and supported for the gradual growth of this new institution. Dear parents let me speak a few words to you. (Kannada)

Heartfelt gratitude to those who put their heart and soul into stage arrangements, light and sound management, programme co-ordination and attention to the tiniest of details, without which an event of such magnitude could not have been executed to such perfection.

This journey of “The Winter’s Tale” would not have been possible without the unstifled enthusiasm of my dearest students, their parents and the unconditional support of my staff – teachers, administrative staff and supporting staff.

Dear fathers and brothers of the CMI Ashram, teachers and supporting staff of Kristu Jayanti College, Panchayath members, villagers, benefactors and well-wishers, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this annual day celebration a successful journey.

Let me appreciate and thank my beloved teachers who spent their time and energy dreams and passions, imagination and skill to form our students to brighter heights with confidence.

Before I end, I would like to recite a quote that sums up my feelings of pride at our achievements and the unquenchable aspiration to improve and forge ahead –
“Maybe there is a road ahead of it,
Maybe there is a new world down the road,
Walking forth is the only plight,
Because we didn’t come this far to come this for only.”
