I wish to extend my warmest congratulations to all Senior High School graduates of Moonwalk National High School who have passed the milestone of academic endeavor.
Graduation marks one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. It is the day of achievement and the turning point in one’s life, a reward for intellectual struggle over a period of arduous search for knowledge. It is a transition from one academic level to another in preparation for the life beyond the school portals. Please be reminded that this occasion is not the end but rather the beginning of life long search for knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
Work hard, continue to do good things for at the proper time you will reap the fruit if you do not give up; with this, you could tell yourselves that your efforts, those of your parents and mentors have not been in vain. In the midst of life’s battle, aspire to be number one and try to make a difference but do not forget the Lord. Remember this mantra: “When in pain, always remember that suffering is fleeting but the lessons learned are perpetual. Whatever you do in life, echoes in eternity.”
Graduates, make something of your lives. What remains to be done with your life is now in your hands… Rise above! Godspeed!
