‘Annual Prize Giving Ceremony of QEC College’


It was a pleasure for me to be there this morning to join them in their celebration of their achievements.  It was particularly heartening to see so many parents there as well. Their presence there today is a strong affirmation of their support for their children’s learning experience.  It is undoubtedly a great encouragement to students. To all the students who received awards today, I extend to them my warmest congratulations on their achievements.  The award is not only recognition of their personal achievement but also an encouragement to motivate their peers to strive for excellence. It is not a secret that the QEC has always aimed at excellence in all that it undertakes.   Excellence is not an outcome.  Excellence is a mindset.  It is a state of mind that motivates one to continuously strive to do better.  It is a never ending urge to progress and a perpetual desire to surpass prior achievements.   I congratulate them on their achievements, and I wish them every success in the future and I wish all them well!
