A pleasure it is, for it is the Principal’s privilege to oversee and co-ordinate the activities of a space where present is moulded into future. A challenge it is, too, as it is a responsibility as well, and an enormous one, to ensure that everything on the campus is oriented toward the noble goal of bringing out the best in human personality, which education is about.
