Best Student for the month of September

Tshering Dekar of CLass VIIIB

Let me quote,the great and glorious masterpiece of men is to live to the point. The wisdom of life is so succinctly expressed. And yet most of us live our lives like one long air raid drill, filling air, days with activities that seem important in the moment but that count for little in the overall scheme of our lives. And getting the title of best student of the September Month, I would take that as one of the scheme in my life. So for this, I would like to thank teachers and Captains for having faith in me and I promise that I will live up to the expectations of you All!,
