At the outset, placing the Welcome Address, the Chairperson of KiiT International School, Dr. Monalisha Bal said that, personally I look forward for the holistic development in all of the students. We should vie for quality education instead of quantity, i.e., the quality to make learning interesting and joyful. As we have not reached our goal yet, we have to put our level best effort to achieve it.
Gracing the occasion as the Chief Speaker, Mr. Virender Kumar Mehta, World Record Holder Word Wizard who has memorized a whopping 80000 English words(almost the entire Oxford Dictionary), advised the students to follow right work ethics. “Don’t let anything come between your work and goal. Often adhere to the three traits for success, i.e. Desire, Determination and Direction. If you have adequate patience and passion, then anything won’t be impossible on your way”, Mr. Mehta added. He elucidated that in life it is nothing, but stress management is the need of the hour.

The Principal of KiiT IS, Dr. Sanjay Suar hailed the students as the pioneers of future and messengers of society. He shared the uniqueness of the school and also outlined the aspirations and goals in the years to come, recognizing the role of the team in the growth of an institution.
Mr. Pradeep Kumar Das, Director, KiiT-IS said that the two things which have the potential to change the world are education and empowerment. Education should not be confined to academic only.
