    My honourable chief guest, respected president,

    Hi,

    My honourable chief guest, respected president, principal, teachers, parents and my school fellows

    Is the use of "My" in the above sentence correct or should I replace it with "The"?

    Re: My honourable chief guest, respected president,

    Who is the "chief guest"? Why don't you address him/her by name?
    I am not a teacher.
