Mezhür Higher Secondary School on Friday marked its 50th year of imparting education and knowledge to the people. The Golden Jubilee celebration was held at the school campus with Minister for Urban Development and Higher Education, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu as the chief guest. Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Shürhozelie asserted that it was necessary to keep pace with the global competition with knowledge as a powerful means of development and enablement of challenges. He said that there was tremendous urge for quality education among the people and on that end, private institutions had played a vital role in fulfilling the aspirations of the people. He said that private schools had contributed greatly in imparting quality education, and further added "when we can take care of the standard and quality of the products of our institutions, we can assure of our rightful place in the global competition." Lauding MHSS for completing 50 years, Dr. Shürhozelie said that one could look back the 50 years with justifiable satisfaction. He further encouraged the school authorities to introspect their future plans and programme, stating that education was a living subject which needed to be strived continually to keep up with the modern world. Highlighting the academic achievements of MHSS, the chief guest stated that through their achievement, other teaching communities would develop an urgency to understand better the noble profession they follow. The celebration was marked by the release of jubilee souvenir by the chief guest, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu. A prayer of thanksgiving was proposed by Rev. Moa Longchari; while a moment of silence was observed in remembrance of the departed souls who were once part of the school. Welcome address was delivered by K. V. Pusa, MLA and chairman of Managing board; while managing Director of MHSS, Atuo Mezhür said the vote of thanks. The jubilee choir, Tenyimie students, Asenuo Metha, Nehginthang Hangsing, Kimneihoi Mimi Vaiphei and Sineino Chiecha presented songs during the programme. Formed in the year 1958 by Lt. Samuel Mezhür, MHSS, earlier called as Little Flower School, started with an enrollment of 20 students. The school was later renamed as Kohima English School, and in 1998, changed its nomenclature to Mezhür Higher Secondary School. The school today has about 2500 students from Nursery to Higher Secondary, with 73 teaching staff and 13 ministerial staff.
