He also stressed the importance of believing in oneself as a key factor in accomplishing anything and reminded students to respect their parents’ efforts and sacrifices for their education.

The principal of St. John’s School, Subrata Baruah, emphasised the school’s commitment to keeping up with digital advancements. He also noted that the inauguration of the computer lab demonstrates the school’s commitment to providing a holistic education, including digital literacy.
