Cornerstone Higher Secondary School (CSHSS), Dimapur on Sunday observed its foundation day and thanks giving service at its school premises. The day was marked with special number by ‘Little Angels’ of the school, special appearance by Samaro group, melody from the teachers, musical piece and Bible recitation, attended by managing board members of the school, parents besides school faculty members.
Commissioner and secretary, veterinary and animal husbandry, Thangi Mannen urged students, parents and teaching faculty to play their role with dedication and perseverance to bring laurels to the school and society.
She asserted that the school’s motto “pursuing perfection’ was apt as perfection demands dedication, extreme hard work and perseverance. The commissioner and secretary said perfection can not be achieved, unless one overcomes challenges. She urged students to bring credit to the school and not to feel defeated in the challenge as students have still a long way to go.
She also encouraged the teachers to give their best as teachers with dedication to guide the students in the right path.
Emphasizing on the global world people live today, Thangi said one need to be broad minded and must have inquisitiveness about the happenings of the world in order to excel in whatever they do.
Sharing the word of God, Rev. Wati Longkumer, director, NMM said nothing could be accomplished without allowing God to take charge of one’s life.
Rev. Wati also stressed on the significance of the School’s name ‘Cornerstone’ and explained that cornerstone was the strong foundation of the building and was the last stone to keep the building strong in ancient days. In this regard, he called upon the gathering to let Jesus as the cornerstone of ones live and in students’ career and also make students the cornerstone of society.
He also encouraged the students to play their part and allow God to direct their way.
