“I am indeed grateful for your support towards the school and to the children especially, as they will be greatly motivated and inspired by your appreciation and acknowledgement of their diligent efforts in this year’s Ingenium Concerto.
“This is an important event as it complements the school’s objectives to inculcate the students with the balance of their mind, body and soul,” he said.
He said further that the theme this year was very interesting, as the students would be brought around the globe.
“I believe you will be able to imagine it as the children are working very conscientiously to depict around the world tour on LIS Airlines.
