She said that such events as these also carry a value and message for life. She said that the Kite speaks to every child calling all to emulate its life – to be strong and soar high in spite of all the troubles, winds and difficulties. It calls all students never to break the hold of our roots. She further added that for the kite, sky is not the limit. It likes to
fly and move far away never worried of the limit. It just trusts the kite flier who gives freedom to it.It never gives up and colours the sky and makes everyone happy. She sang two Carnatic songs for the spectators. She relived her school memories and thanked her teachers.

Fr John Bennet in his presidential remarks invited the students to enjoy the kite festival and to try to aim high like the kite and find the fruits of success in life by being hard working.

This day was indeed a memorable and promising one. Competitions were held in four categories each for primary and high school separately - Best Kite, Theme Kite, Highest Flying Kite and Creative Kite. Students displayed the kites they had prepared and flew them with joy.
