From the Principal


In the first book of his popular three-volume magnum opus “Lord of the Rings,” JRR Tolkien narrates a fascinating conversation between Frodo Baggins, the young Hobbit, and Gandalf, the wise wizard. Gandalf explains to Frodo – who is now in possession of the powerful One Ring – the origin and the strange power of the Ring, and that the evil Sauron has returned to capture this Ring, unleashing catastrophic events. Hearing this, an apprehensive Frodo says, “I wish it need not have happened in my time.” “So do I,” replied Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times.

May I invite you to a new adventurous phase in your journey?
