On this occasion I ask everyone gathered here, to respect them for their service. Do not criticize them falsely." In conclusion, he congratulated the school and its management.

I am witness to the school's achievements and I stand guarantee for the education imparted to the children here.

"The role of teachers and parents should be that of a potter. Like the potter who shapes the pot, parents should mould their children at a young and tender age. Children's talents must also be recognized equally so that they bloom and spread their fragrance to the nation.”

The contributions of the correspondents, trustees and the role of teachers and parents along with the people of Karkala are praiseworthy.
