The process of learning never stops. We learn when someone teaches us. We learn by ourselves through several sources and media today. We learn while we teach. Some of us learn the hard way and some of us are fortunate to have the right environment for learning. Over the years of learning - teaching - learning experiences, I have come to realise that learning can be fun. It is my desire and wish that learning may be an enjoyable experience in Grace. After all, it is the GRACE of God that matters the most. - Principal
