Kohima honours govt. school HSLC topper
Kohima, June 10 (EMN): Kohima administration has felicitated HSLC topper Md. Zaheer-Ul-Alam, a student of Government High School, New Market, Kohima from among the government schools in Kohima district. He was felicitated on Wednesday at DPDB conference hall, Kohima.
Md. Zaheer-Ul-Alam secured 79.5% in the exam.
Speaking on the occasion, Nicky Kire, advisor of Urban Development, Municipal Affairs and Smart City, emphasised that the first stage is most crucial as they have to decide which college to join.“What you become tomorrow will depend on you,” he said. Observing that many people join a particular college following their friends, Kire said, “we will never become what we want to when we join colleges just because our friends are there.”
He was of the view that not everyone, who do not have an ambition, would achieve success in life despite being admitted in the best institutions. In this regard, he encouraged the students to work with determination in order to achieve success in life.
“To become somebody you should have dedication, determination and devotion,” he stated adding that even the most brilliant person would fail without hard work.
Also speaking on the occasion, Thejawelie Gregory, Deputy Commissioner and DPDB vice chairman, Kohima, commented that good teachers are required for overall excellent performance in the educational system.
He also insisted on the need for concerted efforts from the teachers and parents.
Stating that it was the 12th year of felicitating the topper from amongst the government schools in Kohima district, he encouraged the students to perform better even in the days ahead.
The school headmaster expressed his joy and congratulated Md. Zaheer-Ul Alam on his success. He attributed the unceasing dedication of the teachers and students for the success.
