“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
To be a great leader, one needs to start by leading oneself. Self-awareness, self-reflection, and self-regulation are the three steps for being a good leader. Upholding the motto of the School, ‘Soaring high is our Nature’, the elected council members pledged to be the torch bearers of the values that the school stands for.”
