I am pleased to welcome you to your school, Notre Dame of Louaize, you who have come willingly, urged by your enthusiasm and want for knowledge, in order to acquire and develop new skills and pursue your project; that of building your personality, your behaviors and your attitudes based on moral, human and social values.
Dear students, I would like to assure you that your school, Notre Dame of Louaize, in which your tutors have renewed the covenant of trust, is in the first place a space open for your reunions and your cooperation in a framework of respect, understanding and collaboration. It is also the ideal place for your growing maturity, developing capabilities and rising culture. Finally, it is the horizon which hosts and supports your talents.
Each one of you is an objective of our objectives.
We think and act for each one of you.
We seek to renew and to progress at all levels for your sake, for you are not mere numbers on an insignificant list, or customers pursuing a specific item, but human beings who, once gathered, form the largest part of the Louaizean family.
Our school is neither a prison nor a military barracks. It is a place where there is no room for fear and worry. Our school is rather an oasis in which dream, thought, work and creativity are in perfect safety. Trust us and be sure that we are at an equal distance from all of you; we treat you equally, relying on justice, which we have chosen to be the slogan for the coming years.
I expect that each one of you lives these positive aspects of education under the banner of general regulations and public order, because anarchy, God forbid, destroys all plans, deteriorates all work and distorts all dreams…
I invite you to spend a distinguished and unique school year, during which you dedicate yourself to work in joy, peace, love and compassion, in the hope of achieving through this change a good share of your ambitions and a new aspect of your personality, far from the unnecessary chaos and negative behaviors that do not fit the Louaizean student.
We greatly appreciate you. We believe that you deserve the best and you deserve a lot. That is why we do not hesitate a moment to respect your rights and perform our duty. In return, put everything at work in order to accomplish your goals and never forget that rights and duties should always be equal …
May the blessings of God and Virgin Mary, the Lady of Louaϊze, be bestowed upon you.
Father Charbel Haddad
