 It gave me indeed great pleasure to be at the second Graduation and Prize giving ceremony, honouring the best from the London College of Accountancy, Mauritius branch. I pay tribute to the parents, friends and relatives who have provided a positive environment by boosting confidence when the going was tough and shared their joys when things were going well. Their financial and moral support and commitment are of inestimable value and I can feel the pride in them, dear parents, of their achievements. I congratulate the graduands for their hard work in achieving success !
