Felicitations to Shri.J.P.Pappiah { Acrostic }


S ir, to you, our dear
H eadmaster with obeisance,
R espects and reverence,
I n this flower of poesy

J oin we, and offer our felicitations, with

P ride welling up in our hearts, blithe.

P appiah, the name,
A ttuned for ever to fame;
P rominent in every sphere;
P ossessing a cap of colourful feathers, came
I nto the portals of I C F High School to tame
A host of two thousand souls and more.
H earts fluttering in the core;

H eads nodding at the door;
E xtended we our hands to receive you afore.
A ffection you poured;
D iscipline you bestowed;
M oulded us in just
A year and a half;
S eeped through the crust
T o the grain, to remove the chaff.
E nthroned now as the Master best;
R anked high among the rest;

I CF School's impeccable Lord
C rowned with the 'State Award',
F ascinates one and all with the deserving placard.

H eightened is the glory of our school
I n owning this scintillating gem;
G littering, though, in this gleaming pool,
H umility abounds, yet, from the very pith to hem.

S tudents, we, in thousands gathered here
C onvey to you, our esteemed, Sir,
H onour, obedience and affection dear
O n this memorable red-lettered day:
O ur prayers to the Almighty:
L ong live our Master till Eternity!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
