My Speech At The Diamond Jubilee Celebration of Sainik School BBSR
I am delighted to join all of you at this momentous occasion, the diamond jubilee celebration of Sainik School Bhubaneswar. My congratulations to all of you on this glorious occasion.
Set up by legendary leader Biju Patnaik in 1962, Bhubaneswar Sainik School, after sixty glorious years, has become a benchmark for quality education, character building and personality enrichment. The school has not only produced some of the finest soldiers of our country, but also large number of its cadets have made significant achievement in the fields of Civil Services, Medicine, Engineering, Merchant Navy, entrepreneurship and many other fields. It can take pride in its galaxy of alumni for the significant contribution they have made to society.
The strength of our education system not lies in academic excellence, but rests in the ability to empower the students with knowledge, confidence, responsibility, and ability to think and face situations of life independently. Sainik School Bhubaneswar stands apart for its efforts to instill the ethos of armed forces, and endeavour to awaken the individual potential of each student to serve his or her motherland in every sphere of life. I hope the school will continue to bring about the desired transformation in our future citizens.
It is the moment to cherish the glorious and memorable years that the school and its alumni have passed through and to motivate the young minds of boys and girls to emulate the same. I would like to urge the young cadets sitting here to seize each and every opportunity that you get, and live up to the expectations of the school as well as the nation.
In the end, I once again congratulate entire SAIBHUBAN family on the auspicious occasion of Diamond Jubilee and hope this event helps in igniting the minds of the cadets in shaping the kind of India we all aspire .
