It has become a benchmark today to measure the academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular excellence. Indeed, the school has a lot to celebrate when we look back and I do remember all the departed committee members for their dedication, determination and perseverance which helped the association and perseverance which helped the association to scale this great height.
