It’s a pleasure to be back with the next issue of our school magazine illustrating a picturesque portrayal of the dynamic year 2017- 2018. The theme of the year ‘Be the Change You Want to Be’, an adaptation of Mahatma Gandhi’s teaching, impressed upon us the need to change ourselves first, in order to see change around us. As human beings our greatness lies not so much in being able to transform the world, but in being able to transform ourselves. An attitudinal change is necessary to improve our thought processes which will then prompt positive actions. As we do this we make our lives meaningful in a thousand ways and help make the lives of others better than they thought possible.


“In education, there is a golden triangle of quantity, quality and equity. You just can’t ignore one while strengthening others”


Mr. Sitaram Yechury

The term ‘21st century learning’ is used frequently to represent the current approach to educational reform. The term generally describes education that is learner-centred, inquiry-based, technology-rich, inter-disciplinary, collaborative and personalized. The rate of change in the world is exponential and it is constantly accelerating. Enlightened school leaders and promoters have realized that education is no longer about what the next trends are going to be and preparing students for those, but it’s about preparing students for the unknown- the unpredictable. It’s about teaching students to become lifelong learners so that they build skills to adapt to change.


As Nelson Mandela said,” Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illnesses and to fostering peace. Together we can impart to our children ethical education with basic principles like truthfulness, honesty, charity, hospitality, tolerance, love, kindness and empathy.


It was with great humility that I received the Government of Telangana Award for the commendable contribution of Little Flower High School in the field of education among Christian Minority Institutions, from the Honorable Chief Minister of Telangana Mr. K. Chandrasekhar Rao on 22nd December, 2017. This is a tribute to the zeal, commitment and selfless perseverance of all the former Principals, former and present teachers, parents and students who have contributed to the progress of the school catapulting it to the zenith of success. Hardwork, determination and grit helped us lift the Overall Trophy and the Literary Trophy in the XXI National Montfort Literary and Cultural Competitions held at St. Mathew’s Public School, Vijaywada in November 2017.


Through these pages we have presented the bubbling enthusiasm and the drive exhibited by our students as they participated in the various activities planned for them. I acknowledge and appreciate all those who worked behind the scenes, and those who contributed their time and resources to make this enterprise a noteworthy experience.


Happy Reading


God Bless Us All.
