Myself, Ramapriya.S. I am currently studying BE Computer Science in PSG Tech. I am 2022 passed out and a very proud alumni of St Mary’s Convent Matriculation Hr.Sec.School.
I have studied in this school for 14 years right from LKG to 12thSTD.This is the place where I began to learn the alphabet and can now use the same to solve equations. It is the period during which I learnt the basic principles of behavior, speech, and etiquette. My School is the place where one gets trained to be a disciplined human. Discipline is the first and foremost thing to be explicitly specified while describing my school. My school isvery supportive and do really welcome new talents. I had a great experience and cherishable moments with wonderful teachers and lovely friends. My teachers are the most important people of my life. They cheered me and motivated me and they are the absolute reason for what I am today. I have learnt a lot from them and I really love the way they treat, care and support us. They not only brought out the best from us but also taught us the rights and wrongs of life. I was also gifted with lot of friends and they are the people for life indeed. My school life is no less than a blessing that has given me priceless joys in life. It helped me to gain understanding and to succeed not only in my studies but also, in co-curricular activities and taught me a lot of life skills, for which I am grateful to this day. In my ears, those words of wisdom and prayers are still ringing. I still remember me and my friends sharing lunch during the lunch break, playing badminton on the court, the joyful interactions with teachers and taking part in various co-curricular activities, the special days with programs are the most exciting ones and of course, the excursion trips and the list goes on. Now that I look back, I had entered my school crying, not wanting to let go of my mother’s hand, scared of the new place and new people, and I left it crying, scared of leaving that place, those friends, and inspiring teachers.
My School also provided me the opportunity to participate and develop skills in various extracurricular activities like drawing, singing, dancing, creative writing, anchoring, playing badminton and more. I am the type of person who is interested in most of the extracurricular activities and wish to participate in much of the competitions. I was allowed to participate in all and I had secured prizes in more of those competitions and that was again the best memory. It was my teachers who found a drawing skill in me and with their encouragement, I started improving it from then.I wished for an Indian Book of Record last year for drawing 50 Indian personalities in a single chart each of 6*6 cm drawings. But unfortunately, I couldn’t grab that because my face wasn’t included in my drawing video. I am happy that I tried and it’s again the teachers who pushed me forward. In curriculum, I have faced lot of slight ups and downs in examinations and I do really care of my marks as it really meant more to me. The marks I gained may be because of my efforts but without the support and motivation from my teachers, the efforts wouldn’t have gained success and that led to gain a merit seat in one of the most prestigious institution, The PSG Tech.
I take this to thank my respected Sr.Principal, Sr. Correspondent, Sr.Vice Principal, Teachers and my Friends who made me what I am today.
