I am happy and gratified to have this opportunity to address our students, their parents, educationists and all who are committed to the cause and progress of education in our country. Priority-wise, the first task of students is to study the subjects well just as the prime responsibility of teachers is to make the subjects come alive. However a holistic education requires all stakeholders to allocate time and energy to develop talents and activities which stimulate their intellects and increase their interest and sense of enjoyment thereby ensuring that education here is conducted within a wholesome and happy environment. Our focus is on achieving excellence not only in academics but also in co-curricular activities and life skills. At the same time we cannot leave the social interpretation and application of education wholly to principals, parents, pamphlets or chance.
For this teaching and learning must develop both a science and a philosophy. The techniques call for scientific study of methods and ethical study of ends. Students are encouraged to be open-minded, critical and constructive. Opportunities are created for a training of mind, body, hand and eye, of purpose, integrity in work and loyalty to a cause that certainly includes, but goes beyond the means of material satisfaction.
I wish to commend with pride and gratification the diligence and dedication of the Headmaster, Deputy Headmistress, Academic supervisor, the HoDs, the teachers and staff who unflinchingly and indefatigably work to fulfil our mission. Last but not least, on behalf of the Family of Shaaban Robert Secondary school, I reiterate our deep appreciation for the encouragement, trust and affection of the parents of our students, and our association with innumerable well-wishers and friends for being a source of infinite strength to us and one of the main reason for the credibility and success of our ventures.
Hon. Philip Magani
