Definition of integrity
Treated everyone equally
Possessed every quality
Boon to the student community

First lessons in Punctuality
Never taken lightly
Ingrained in us permanently
Made us better citizens in Society

Ironed shirt and polished shoes
Set the standard and the rules
An example for everyone at school
Never once lost his cool

Baritone voice unmistakable
Knowledge of the language impeccable
Personality and Conduct impressionable
His very presence and demeanor respectable

Treated everyone equally
Showed no signs of partiality
Took his profession seriously
An epitome of integrity

Manners his priority
Would impart it politely
How to conduct yourself with dignity
No one thought it more appropriately

As the subjects got tougher
He became our teacher
Taught English prose and Grammar
Marked everyone including his son without fear or favor

The Schools Assistant Head Master
Entire school had found a mentor
Straddled Education and behavior
Blessing in disguise for every teenager

Calm and Collected
Revered and Respected
Man of benevolence
Epitome of Goodness

Personification of Patience
Listened to every grievance
Kindness his very essence
A blessing even to reminiscence

Seldom a word Spoken
If not required
Every utterance thoughtful
Silence to be understood

Generations to benefit
From his wisdom and wit
Deemed everyone fit
Never threw a rage of fit

I bow to him
Not a day goes by
Without remembering him
Wish he were still with us
I'm sure his spirit is guiding us

A leader among teachers
President s award winner
The award gets the honor
Bestowed upon this Scholar

Respect must be paid
For the relentless efforts he made
In our thoughts and prayers Every single day
The legend Mr A Selvadorai
