Principal’s Words

Last year, the College placed strong emphasis on the value of gratitude. Understanding that genuine gratitude extends beyond mere words and manifests itself in selfless actions that benefit others, we build upon that foundation this academic year by embracing the spirit of "pay it forward" - a concept that encourages us to extend kindness to others and translate gratitude into meaningful acts of service.


Our students, who are blessed and bestowed with diverse talents and strengths, are invited to embark on this transformative journey. They are called not only to focus on personal growth and success, but also to actively seek opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others and create a positive ripple effect in our community.


As the new school year begins, we also encourage students to cultivate the habit of daily reflection. In daily life, we encounter a multitude of experiences - facing failures, dealing with challenges, engaging in conflicts with others, or witnessing someone in need of assistance. In DLKP, we urge students to take a moment to reflect on these experiences and contemplate their responses using the acronym WWID.


This practice of reflection empowers us to gain valuable insights into ourselves and our actions. By pausing to consider the choices we make and the outcomes they produce, we can develop a greater sense of self-awareness, and discover alternative approaches to various situations.


Students are encouraged to make WWID a regular practice for reflection as they navigate through their academic journey and the ups and downs of daily life. It is our hope that these questions – “What would I do?”, “What would I do next?”, “What would I do differently?” – gradually guide students towards becoming the best version of themselves.


Wishing you all a reflective and fruitful academic year ahead.
