The rules and regulations of our school are not chains or bondage or slavery; they are guidelines and indicators showing you the direction in which to move so as to help you reach your goal. It is not easy to abide by rules and regulations always, and can be very painful at times. But all growth entails growing-pains. A sports star has to submit himself to strenuous and rigorous practice and self discipline to achieve the gold medal; a musician has to practise several hours for months and years and even a life time to achieve mastery or perfection. You also must go through the pain of growing up, and discipline yourself to be an excellent person, like gold that is purified at high temperatures.
The rules and regulations given in this Handbook are the minimum requirements for the good running of the school. You are expected to go far beyond the minimum: achieve excellence in everything you do – in good behaviour, in your studies, in your personal development and growth and in your relationship with all. There is no limit to what you can achieve as a person. Look for the company of good friends and good people who can help you reach where you want to be.
Each one of us is meant to grow and blossom
A little more each day.
So, stop looking at where you have been
And start looking at where you want to be.
Want to be at the top? Start looking up.
If you keep looking back,
You will never reach where you want to be.
