Graduation Ceremony of Grade 12 Higher Secondary
Graduation is major point of transition from school to the college stage. from constant personalised guidandce by parents and teachers and school bells, to stand a lone situation. learning the power of one. It is also a transition for your parents, with their budgets inflating from borderline financial solvency to a panic situation that may have theme seeing red! George Bernard Shaw said; “some people see things as they are and ask. “why” but I” said Mr. Shaw, “dream things that never were and ask, why not ? Curiosity will be the key for your success, asking the perpetual why.
Curiosity turn work into play. Do you things shakespeare was gritting is teeth and diligently trying to write great literature ? of course not. He was curious to find out about the complexities of human nature . That is why he is so good.
There are specific remainders all over the school, that you should never be afraid to ask questions. Great questions don’t appear easily, they are the fruits of curios mind. Henry Ford’s great question was , “why do cars have to be a luxury item ?” Franz Beckenbauere asked, “Why does every player stay in his position, why can’t defenders score goals too ?”
Your challenge now is to find your great question that will enrich the world. For Einstein, theory of relativity wasn’t a book full of hard stuff that he had to learn for an exam. It was a mystery he was trying to solve. So it probably felt like less work to him to invent it than it would seem to someone today to learn it in class.
They class play you staged this year, shakespeare’s ‘Othello’ offered a generous sprinkling of wisdom for us to consider on this special day. Othello can be a role model. Othello was great general. But he had not achieved his high military rank easily. He surmounted powerful prejudices set against him, for this dark skin colour but his determination and ability overcome all the obstacles. Othello was superb leader. A man of great stature and personal energy. We learn that he did not blame any one or any situation for what he had done, not even lago, who trapped him, nor his temporary insanity, nor the stresses of war. he blames himself.
