FINAL year students of Kilusakwalo Christian Community High School (KCCHS) were told that receiving their certificates does not signal an end but rather the beginning of a long journey.
Principal Alick Bebesia uttered the words when encouraging 234 graduating students who received their certificates during the KCCHS 2017 annual graduation and prize-giving ceremony last Friday.
“As you move on to the next phase of your lives, make Kilusakwalo proud by being hard- working, innovative and committed,” Mr Bebesia told the students.
“Your success is not guaranteed by being a graduate today, indeed far from it.
“Receiving your certificate today does not signal an end but rather the beginning of a long journey.”
He also told the students that this changing world would offer unparalleled opportunities and some very difficult challenges.
With that, he said the graduation theme of the KCCHS for this year 2017, which was “Education for Excellence,” could only be meaningful if students are committed to their studies.
“Graduands, if you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you need to develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception but a prevailing attitude.
“My plea is for you to start develop yourself on small areas in your studies before looking at achieving greater things in life,” he added.
