St. Thomas' School Shimla

Principal's Desk

In the words of John F. Kennedy, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

I express my deepest and heartfelt gratitude to our chairperson the Rt. Rev. Pradeep Kumar Samantaroy for his ongoing support for encouraging me to take the school to greater heights, to our management committee members, Prof. Meenakshi F. Paul, Prof. Derick Engles, Mr. S. Francis, Ms. Sudha Sharma, Rev. Mushtaq Malk for their unstinted support. The success of the celebrations would not have been possible without constant advice and wholehearted involvement of Prof. Pankaj K. Singh, Dr. Ashish Amos, Ms. Satvasheela Chavan, Prof. Usha Bande, Prof. Girija Sharma, Ms. Neelam Bali, Dr. Neelima Kanwar, Nandini Pathania, Mr. Vivek Mohan and Ms. Cheryl Jacob.

I express my appreciation to the administration and the media of the Shimla city for helping us run the programmes smoothly and giving us excellent coverage.

My heartfelt gratitude to all the principals who attended and encouraged their students to be a part of the year long celebrations with us.

No school can work well for children if parents and teachers do not act in partnership for the best of their children's interest with the school authorities. My deepest appreciation stands tall for all my parents, teachers and children for their wonderful support.

I wish to conclude in the words of James Branch Cabell, "While it is well enough to leave footprints on the sands of time, it is even more important to make sure they point in a commendable direction".

Thank you!
