Message from Headgirl


The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery and that is the most valuable endowment I have received from this institute. More than academic and religious knowledge, I have profited from the lessons behind the lessons through the diligence, discipline and resilience displayed by the members of staff. It is these natural attributes that have moulded me and allowed me the honour of being Head Girl at this school.

I have noted over the years being here that my educators’ sincere happiness lies in the success of their students, and I am truly in debt to every single one of them who assisted me to reach my potential. Success, according to my definition, is not determined by financial prosperity or tangible property but rather, successful is the one who is morally equipped. Character is the real foundation of all worthwhile success and I have only CGHS to thank for laying this solid foundation. Although a little reluctant at first to be associated to this school, at the end of this journey Crescent has become a choice that I now have no regrets about.

There is nothing more rewarding than giving back and making a difference in the lives of the people in this community. My school has accomplished this by its many charitable drives over the years. The school has always lived up to the expectation of its motto ‘Learn, Strive and Serve’ and instilled these values by encouraging every learner to participate in some kind of community work. The life lessons learnt from these opportunities can never be measured by anyone’s standards. I learnt that as the purse emptied, the heart filled with immense joy. The smile of the one you touched speaks a thousand words.

My colleagues who have embarked on a journey similar to mine will testify that as much as we complained and moaned over the years about petty things, that the school has made a positive impact on our development. My peers have made the good times better and the hard times easier. At the end of my life, my most treasured possession will not be my wealth as I cannot take that along with me, but rather my experiences, memories and most importantly, my integrity. These cannot be replaced.

Crescent had always been and will be my family. No matter how high the different branches may soar, our roots shall always remain as one.

May Allah the school in every avenue and may the future pupils continue to keep the light burning bright at this institute, our Alma Mater.
