For 18-year-old Sahima Khan, the struggles she faced being the only child of a single parent contributed to her achieving excellence in her secondary school education.

The Kamil Muslim College in Ba Dux was emotional yesterday while paying tribute to her mother Nisha Khan for nurturing her.

“They have instilled in me the qualities of independent thinking and self motivation,” Sahima said.

“I have to thank my mother as without her, I would never reach the pinnacle of success.”

Chief guest Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport Parveen Bala told the students not to fear ideas and be bold while making the most important decisions in life.

Mr Bala said the Government had time and again made a concerted effort  to invest in education.

“Today’s the world recognises skills,” he said.

Mr Bala gave words of wisdom to the staff in nurturing children because children were at the mercy of teachers for education and urged them to “handle students with respect and dignity.”
