Little would Mary Ward, ourfounder know of me, but she knew of us girls and young women centuries ago. She knew that we needed to be made strong and empowered to take up the challenges in the real world.
The sisters and teachers in our Loreto schools, particularly here, endeavour to empower us with knowledge, the skills of mind and body to solve problems big and small. This self-confidencegives us faith in ourselves and in others and above all a deep sense of values and commitment that bind us to God, to each other and to humanity.
I am here before you, humbled by the faith reposed by you all in me as the School Head Girl. Respected Sister Mercia, my Teachersand fellow students, you have given me this mantle of responsibility and my faith in God and in you all makes me confident that God will take us to greater paths of glory for our dear school.
Comewith me girls as you and I and all of us,in the Student Council make our school a better place to study and grow, into young confident women who are not afraid to take our rightful place in the world and walk the earth with pride and dignity, proud to be products of our Alma Mater.
I promise to uphold the values of our school and to fulfil your expectations of me with sincerity and passion as your Head Girl. Thank you all and God above for giving me this opportunity to take on the responsibility and lead the student body in the service of our school and the greater glory of God.
At the outset, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to the almighty first and then to Sr. Mercia and all teachers for reposing their faith in me. I thank you all my fellow students for using your voice, your vote to express your confidence in me. I am grateful for having being blessed with this opportunity to serve my alma mater and you my schoolmates as the Head Girl. I acknowledge that Loreto has moulded me into what I am today-both in thought and conduct, a legacy that I will carry with me forever. I do not take this responsibility lightly and I shall endeavour to represent you with utmost transparency and boldness.
I am sure that I speak on behalf of all my fellow student council members when I say to each of you that just as much as you’ve seen leaders in us, know that there is a friend too, to share your every concern and offer you support.
Together, we will endeavour to make it one of the most memorable years at school.
Let’s make Loreto proud by excelling at everything that we do, be it academics, sports, or any other extracurricular activity.
I promise to lead the school not with position, but with passion, and I need your constant support to achieve it.
Leadership is not about making speeches or being liked. It is defined by the results
and not by the attributes.
Firstly, I would to say a big thank you for believing in me and electing me as your
representative. I give you my word that I will do my best to serve this institution
which has given me so much... not only in education but a lot beyond and has been
my second home since quite some time now.
I, with the help of my fellow council members, surely intend to make a difference.
But that won't be possible unless all of you join us, as friends, as companions
in the school's journey towards even greater heights.
The badge you see here doesn't make us any different from you all. It's just for
reminding you constantly, that we are your representatives. Your troubles and doubts
are very much ours too. We are your speakers, the voice to your brilliant ideas
and opinions. So when you want to express any idea, do feel free to approach us.
I assure you, you will always find an ear willing to listen and a heart willing
As we know, this is Loreto's Golden Jubilee Year which makes it very very special
for all of us. So I'm looking forward to a whole lot of co-operation and whole-hearted
enthusiasm from your side. And since these school years are and will be the best
ones of your life, I suggest, let's make it worthwhile. I'm sure, if we join hands
today, we can make this 50th year a productive, fruitful, enjoyable and most importantly,
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. Once you become
a leader, success is all about growing together”.
I would like to begin with expressing, on behalf of the STUDENT COUNCIL and myself,
immense gratitude to all the teachers and students for electing us and believing
I would like to reinforce the fact that the STUDENT COUNCIL is not restricted to
the 17 of us, but each one of you is equally important for achieving the goals that
we set. The only difference between you and us, is a distance of 7 centimeters which
is merely the length of the badges that we wear.
My personal vision for our school is that we may excel in every fields including
Academics, Sports and co-curriculars, but my foremost vision is that each one of
you may get a chance to display your talents. Mark my words when I say this, when
you win something for yourself, it is for you and your family, but when you win
laurels for our school, it is for you, your family, plus 2000 more people. The happiness
and satisfaction thus, will be 2000 times more!
A word to my co-council members-“It is nice to be important, but it is more important
to be nice.” So let us all keep aside our differences and start working together,
not for me, or for you, but for our Loreto family.
