Ms. Asia Mariam said, "The School Students have demonstrated amazing zeal, confidence and oratory skills in this competition. Even today, there is a miscomprehension among a few, that corporation schools lack the quality that builds self confidence and stunts the growth of its students. But, this "Wings to fly" program organised by the The Rotary Club of Madras East clearly proved that these students can stand their grounds against any competition provided they are given the opportunity. Congratulations to the winning students."

District Governor Rtn. CR Raju, RI Dist 3230 and Rtn. Jayanthi Govindan, President, RCM East who organised the entire competition along with Rtn. Magesh Pattabhiraman, Chairman, Wings to Fly and Rtn. Babu Krishnamoorthy, Secretary, RCM East were also present.
