Appreciation makes us feel uplifted, happy, joyous, enthusiastic, peaceful, positive and energetic. These thoughts and feelings, in turn, make us glow in perfect health. A beautiful conglomeration of these essentials of life enables us to appreciate everybody and appreciate life itself. ‘Appreciation’ flows from the eternal source – ‘gratitude’.
The academic year 2015 – 16 has taught us appreciation. Appreciation has become the oxygen that we breathe, in Sunbeam and has resulted in accolades to our institution. Our XII graders topped our district with, district I, II & III ranks. Our students won the Sports Zonal Championships – individual and group. I congratulate all student achievers, teachers and management staff.
I received the President’s Award for National Best Teacher September 2015. At this juncture I remember my parents. My father Mr.Stanly Samuel, who was a State best teacher awardee in 1976 and my mother Ms. Pushpam Stanly, who is a Tamil teacher. My heartfelt gratitude goes to them. I thank all our teachers, non teaching staff and students who have made me a wonderful teacher.
Everything I am today is because of my awesome family – my children Dr. Arthi & Dr. Arvind and my husband Mr. Harigopalan, Chairman, Sunbeam Schools. I thank the almighty and remain grateful.
