It seems yesterday
when I joined this school. But as I pause to think back,
I am astonished to find that with the flow of time so many
years have passed and like Mr. Chips, I do remember all
my students, especially their faces, how did they look then,
when they first came as toddlers holding their parents’
I have had the rare privilege to
be associated with this school since its inception. Today,
it is with pride and tinge of nostalgia that I begin to
recount that all of twenty-five years ago, on April 1, 1982
our Founder Secretary Mr. Somnath Mitra founded Lycée
with 35 students and today the school rolls are bursting
at their seams with 2000 students spread over three premises.
But this veritable explosion, so
necessary to accommodate all those aspiring learners, has
given us a dream to cherish. Our very own school premises,
large enough to accommodate all our students, and with playing
fields, that we are unable to provide to them.
And, I promise, all these and many
other good things, like that dream library, the hi –
tech laboratories, even the swimming pool that we never
dared to dream, will all happen in the years to come. And
all my students shall reminisce to the youngsters then about
the time they had in the school called Lycée.
With so much goodwill and friendship
around, dear Lycéeans, set out to attain more; for
a person’s grasp should always be greater than his
reach. In the years to come, I look forward to seeing the
full flowering of the promises hidden in you and each of
you will blossom with your full potential. I am sure it
will happen, so we your teachers, wish for you today and
will continue to do so in the times to come.
May the good lord bless you all!
