The students were gathered in the school yard. After the morning prayer, the principal Mrs. Rita Boyadjian in her welcome speech thanked every parent and student who believed and entrusted this new school and became its heart. She said, "Each of you should feel proud because you are considered the founders of this school. Just as our body survives with beating heart, you are the heartbeat of this school and you are the ones who called it to life. Therefore, I wish you all to feel in your home and become hardworking students".
