BALASORE: Former President APJ Abdul Kalam on Thursday appealed to the teachers and parents to impart quality education and encourage the young ones. He sought quality education for students, particularly at school level, to bring radical change in their mindset.

The Missile Man, who inaugurated the golden jubilee celebration of Sachindra Kumar High School at Langaleswar here, was at his usual best exhorting children to aim high. “Every child has the potential of a great mind. However, it requires nourishment and training. With determination and hard work, anyone can realise their true potential and evolve into a great personality,” he said.

 Kalam asked the students from different schools who had gathered at the venue to have a glimpse of him, to be inquisitive.

“It is not the building or infrastructure that makes an educational institution great. Imparting quality education and igniting ideas will help them acquire knowledge and give positive shape to the young minds,” Kalam said.

He asked the students as well as locals to take an oath to plant at least five trees every year in their locality which will not only help in keeping the environment healthy but also combat rising pollution.
