Head Girl's Message

As the man was passing a herd of elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front legs. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason they did not. He saw a trainer nearby and asked the reason “well”, trainer said “when they are very young we use the same size rope to tie them and at that age, it is enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free. The man was amazed. These animals could any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they could not, they were stuck where they were.


Like the elephants, how many of us go through life believing that we cannot do something simply because we failed at it once?


Failure is a part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.


We here at Mater Dei gather all our strength and work together to bring our fellow mates forward. We abide in compassion and grow in serenity living up to the noble ideals expressed in our school motto-To Love through Truth.


Easier said than done, dreams will remain merely dreams until and unless you plan not to give up, no matter how hard the situation gets and this is exactly my message to all of you.


Remember, God gives his hardest battles to his bravest soldiers. Don’t be like the elephants in the story, never give up!!


In the end, summing it all up, my message to all the young ladies out there, there is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman in her own skin.
