RM Salgaocar Higher Secondary School, Margao held its prize distribution function and annual social gathering.
Addressing the gathering president of Vidya Vikas Mandal, Sheela HN Gaunekar said yesterday’s solutions to today’s problems would not suffice, so the mission of a school is to create a safe learning environment and prepare the youth to embrace life’s changes.
Chairman of the school managing committee, Vinayak Angle spoke on the importance of leisure activities and postponement of gratification. He urged parents to not shield their children too much as they would not be able to face the harsh world on their own. Likewise, he advised students to be independent and assess everyone’s inputs before venturing into a chosen direction.
Principal of Fr Agnel HSS Verna, JR Rebello spoke on the IT revolution and students of today being millennials of the 21st century. He advised students to spend more time in physical and cultural activities rather than virtual games, and to enjoy what they do, as memories of higher secondary school and college days remain for life.
