Students become the most important asset of the school, without them, schools and teachers are nothing. However, it is also true that a student is nothing or incomplete without a good teacher. So, both are equally responsible for each other’s significance.
We cannot say that only teachers play great role in the student’s life alone, however; students also play great role in making the value and importance of teachers. Both needs equal participation in shaping the students career. He wished all the best to the outgoing students for success and accomplishments in all their future endeavours.
