Director Pisut Yongkamol’s Speech

on National Mother’s Day Activity, Academic Year 2017

              “ Today is a good day, where we haveall experienced good things such as good words and speeches. We have received only good things today. Teachers and students, I would like to leave you with some life lessons.Firstly,“ Don’t judge people”. Sometimes friends make us angry. It’s possible that we don’t know and cannot feel their problems. They may have a health issue or they may face some kind of trouble. They may be suffering and thinking something over and be worried. So, please don’t judge others.

              Nowadays we are living the Zombie Culture, which is disguised in the social media world. At present we have seen a lot of drama happening around. Sometimes, we follow the trends of drama without knowing the facts, which one is true and which one is not. I would like to talk with the teachers about this. If the trend of the drama isn’t right, you should think about it carefully, whether we need to follow the wrong paths of those dramas.

              For boy students, when you have become one of Ektra students, please act like a gentleman, respecting the females, including your female friends and every female. Give them some respect. For girl students, the closest sources of learning are from your mother and your grandmother. For those who don’t have a mom or don’t live with your mom, you may always feel that you hate today the most. But don’t forget that you are the kids of Ektra, you run to your teachers since they are close to you the most. Don’t be afraid of the teachers. They are ready to be a father and a mother for every student.

              For the teachers, please be a father and a mother for the students as best as you can. Take care of them and also respect who they are. Don’t make all the decisionsfor them and don’t judge their future. Pay attention to them and take care of them as best as you can.

              Moreover, there is another important thing I would like to tell you. You should treasure your certificates well because each certificate has a good meaning and memories. Take care of them well. They will be good help for you in the future. If any of you haven’t got certificates yet, run towards them until you find your talents.  Don’t wait for them to come to you.

              Lastly, every student, remember that you have an ability in you. Run to find it and treasure it for your own future.”
