Advising students to excel in academics, Deputy Commissioner C Shikha asked them to adopt healthy competitions among them to achieve their goals. “Students have to draw inspiration from rank student S P Ravi of Ramakrishna Ashrama, who secured first rank in the second PU examination. “Rigorous practice will lead to success in life and helps one to serve the society in an effective manner,” she said.
She was speaking after felicitating meritorious students of second PU at Maharaja PU College on Wednesday. The programme was organised by Karnataka State PU College Principals Association, Mysuru chapter.
Elaborating further, Shikha said, “Students have to focus on extracurricular activities besides their regular studies. This will help them in shaping their personality better.”
Asking girls to shred inferiority complex, the Deputy Commissioner said, “Girls have to come out of this state and participate in all areas to prove they are no less compared to men. There are many women who have achieved a lot in many areas and such personalities should be taken as role models. That girls outshone boys with 80 per cent is a great achievement.”
Speaking on the occasion, Additional DDPU Rejina P Malaki said that college life is not just limited to fun and frolic. “It is a stage where students can restructure their future and achieve goals. Apart from focusing on self development, students have to adopt service-oriented mindset for leading a meaningful life. SSLC and PUC are turning point in a student’s life. Students need to concentrate hard.”
About 25 students those secured above 97 percent marks in second PU were felicitated.
Former DDPU K M Puttu stated that the teachers’ contributions are key to help students excel in studies. “Teachers need to continue their good work to make students become better citizens.”
Principals Association state president and MLC K T Srikantegowda requested parents and teachers to support their wards. About 600 students took part in the event.
