Yet again, the award-winning students celebrated their legendary results and achievements after a memorable four-year cycle at the school. The high achievers in both academic and co-curricular activities were joined by parents at the school’s Speech Day, held at The Oshwal Centre.
The school now joins the league of outstanding institutions from this part of the world that have successfully drafted and crafted their own tradition! We congratulate the students, parents, the teachers and the governing body for “a day’s job” well done.
The significant improvement in this year’s results continues to build further on the reputation of the school nationally and regionally – we are now a powerhouse in many ways and designs. This day was a celebration of all of our achievements, great or small, not just in the classroom but on the sports field, on the stage and in the community as well. It was all part of the philosophy of the school that we so dear hold close to our hearts and guard jealously!
OANJH, is not just here to improve grades, though that is incredibly important, the institution is here to equip young minds of budding scholars with the life skills they need to succeed in the future; thus the school motto.
It is for this reason that the Ag. head of the school proudly recounted that, “We are proud to be part of your journey here at OANJH, to support you to identify and to develop your talents and to go on to higher education or into employment,” he added, “Our job was, and still is, to make sure you’re the best you can be and that you leave here with not only the strongest set of qualifications you can achieve but be able to present yourself at interviews, write a good strong statement, understand the values of working as a team, and be confident individuals going on to realize your ambitions.”
At this moment in time, it is the prayer of the school that the learners, those receiving different awards and those not so lucky to get any on this day, in the same measure, live in the best of times. A time when there is no World War, and there is not likely to be another catastrophic World War anytime soon. That they live in one of the richest nations on Earth, where their off-springs will have access to free education and free healthcare, their families protected by the police, and that their rights and freedoms will be guaranteed by law.
It is our genuine hope that the students that were honored, and who live in a world where the human genome has been mapped and virtually all life threatening diseases show signs of being eradicated in the coming decades, find it easy to fit in this fast changing future environment as players of the change and not spectators! This is what makes OANJH an amazing tool of shaping our future leaders vis-à-vis passive players.
