“If a man wants an education, he can learn all he wants. 

If a man wants to prove himself, a diploma helps more than education.

Unfortunately, diplomas are illusions, but education lasts a lifetime”.


          My dear graduates, your graduation is a manifestation of the quality of education you obtained from the school. We remember your first step, first day of school.  Take a moment to look back on your achievements. Realize all that you’ve accomplished and the footprints that you’ve laid. Each step has been a building block for your life. Your hard work will pay off in many ways. You’ve come so far and you have worked so hard. Your graduation is a new and open door. This very important event in your lives is a moment of achievements and crowning glory of intellectual struggle over a period of laborious search for truth and enlightenment. I want to congratulate you on this happy date. It’s time for you to celebrate, I’m so proud that I know someone so smart will have to graduate. But your education should not end here you must continue to develop your faculties and aptitude. Congratulations on your hard work and dedication. I'm wishing you the best things in life that comes to those willing to put in the time and energy that you have. Keep up the good work, and you'll do great things.







Kaakibat ng tagumpay ay ang walang humpay na pagsisikap, dedikasyon at paniniwala -- sa sarili man o sa kanyang propesyong pinanghahawakan. Ang karunungan ay maikakabit hindi lamang sa larangan ng edukasyon, bagkus mainam na ikintal ito sa kaalaman sa buhay at pangkawang pamamahagi ng kanilang sarili, oras, at kaalaman sa higit na nangangailangan.
