KOHIMA— A felicitation ceremony for the rank holders and subject toppers in the HSLC and HSLC examinations 2023 from Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Kohima, was held at the school auditorium on Tuesday.

HSLC toppers including Neisenuo Suohu (7th rank),  Akhrietounuo Chale (13th rank), Lungshen C Ailly (18th rank) and Imnasenla M Longkumer (18th rank) were felicitated during the programme.

Congratulating the students for coming out in flying colours during their exams, the principal director of School Education, Thavaseelan K, reminded them the need to take control of one’s life.

Dwelling on the differences between process mindset and goal mindset, he stressed on the importance of time management and also urged to have positive attitude in dealing with different situations, which according to him is vital for personal growth.

‘There are people who ask your time and your not able to do what you want to do. As such, cultivate the habit of saying “no” as a student is indeed important as it allows you to prioritise your responsibilities and manage your time effectively,’ he said.

Asking the students to remain nice, kind and humble to everyone, Thavaseelan asserted that good fortune only comes through people with sheer hard work and not by luck.

Reminding the need to persist one’s trust in God, the official reiterated how hard work can beat talent. He added that ‘Your attitude is everything.”

Emphasising on the importance of family and friends as well as mentors, he reminded the youngsters to read a lot and also maintain diet and take care of one’s body through exercises.

On the occasion, teachers of the institute were also felicitated.
