Christ King Higher Secondary School Kohima celebrated 50 years jubilee of its existence at school premise on Thursday, with minister Higher Education and Tribal Affairs Temjen Imna Along and Rt. Rev. Dr. James Thoppil, Bishop of Kohima Diocese as special guest and guest of honour.

Speaking at the grand celebration, the minister praised the past and present head of the school, the father/priest, sisters, teachers and Alumnis for their effort in making the event special.

He congratulated CKHSS for attaining a milestone stating that to understand 50 years of the school existence was indeed a long journey. He made a special mention of the fathers and sisters who left behind their dear ones far in their homeland and were serving the Nagas without having the greed to acquire wealth and not having anything after retirement. 

He however said they have earned the merit of heavenly Kingdom which only God knows adding that their sacrifice was a Godly endeavour.

Asserting that teachers were the people who make the difference, he urged the teachers to mould and shape the students in such a way that they become fearless of corruption and favouritism.

He maintained that in a transitional period like today, one must be bold to speak the truth and should not be afraid of guns and bullets, while adding that one must be humble.

Along also reminded that Nagas will not have a robust society and bureaucracy if a person insists on getting a job without sitting for exams and interviews, whereby he urged the gathering not to indulge in corruption.

Bishop of Kohima in his address congratulated CKHSS for attaining golden jubilee stating that CKHSS has grown from a tiny seed to a mighty tree, spreading its branches everywhere.

Thoppil said during the last fifty years many have gone through the portal of the school, taking their rightful place in the society and it was time to rejoice and acknowledge the people who had journeyed along these past years to give shape to what the school is today.

He also thanked the fathers, sisters, leaders and the staff, students (past and present), who had contributed much for the growth of the institution.

Thoppil said education by its very nature was transformative, changing human persons, whereby the students of CKHSS, the past, present and the future must become its own brand ambassadors and proponents of the values which they have been taught.
