Mistakes are fundamental to achieving success; it is about learning from the mistakes, driving forward and having the courage to continue. Developing the character to succeed is the key, and often this is formed within the fires of trial, error and difficulty.

"This Form 6 has demonstrated that they have the determination, resilience, character, ambition and talent to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

"Congratulations once again. I am so very proud of you all."
