Gratitude is the highest form of prayer. This message was reciprocated by students of Grades 9 to 11 during the Film Club Screening on 19.03.2022 (Saturday) by Mrs. KP Smitha. The name of the clipping was Joe Jirad – The best Salesman. The clipping reinforced the value of gratitude in sales and marketing, how one powerful thought can change the way people look at us and how success multiplies.
The clipping 'Barber gives free hair cut' reassured the value of kindness and how kindness changes our life for good. Sometimes change is not sudden and it takes years for the kindness to pay forward, but it definitely will come back to us as some of the greatest blessings that we have ever experienced in life. Students suggested that they need to come forward to help as the world needs more kind human beings.
