“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” Said Shahzad Qayyum. Cradled in the lap of nature on the one hand and archeological edifice on the other, swaying from serious thinking to playful inventiveness, four thousand women students at Brookfield College are brimming with a zeal for life empowering themselves with skills and creativity. I congratulate the staff and students of all faculties who used various mediums of expression to present their ideas. As long as our ideas are expressed and thoughts kindled we can be sure of learning, as everything begins with an idea. I appreciate every student who shared the joy of participation in co-curricular and extracurricular activities along with their commitment to curriculum. That little extra we do, is the icing on the cake. ‘Do more than belong – participate. Do more than care – help. Do more than believe – practice. Do more than be fair – be kind. Do more than forgive – forget. Do more than dream – work.’ Just as our mother earth gives us more and more, Shahzad Qayyum will enable our learners to give and get a little more of learning.
