He encouraged the students to be courageous, relevant to their context, competitive, curious and of a broad mind set. He explained that a student fails exams because of fear and not because they do not know the correct responses. He defined the word fear as ‘false, evidence, appearing real’. He encouraged the students to set targets, write them on their desks, set their eyes daily on them and compete with self against those targets, . He said studying is not just about absorbing information but learning how to think critically. Later in the day the students had a good time at the fourteen falls.
