The 7th of July saw our newly elected student council take on the mantle of responsibility at the Investiture Ceremony 2018-19. Despite an overcast sky, our students, teachers and parent community gathered in huge numbers to show their support for our new student leaders and to cheer them on as they accepted their new roles at the momentous occasion.
Our directors, Mr A K Agarwal and Mr Sanjay Agarwal, as well Ms Kavitha Jain, the CEO of MDN Edify Private Ltd, graced the event as the guests of honour. The school choir’s poetic rendition of the school song and Bruno Mars’ ‘You can count on me’ set the tone for the sombre event. The invocation dance too, inspired the gathering with a sense of hopefulness and belief.
The guests of honour gave away badges and sashes to our new student leaders from both the junior and senior sections, as their proud friends and parents applauded them on. After each member of the prefectorial body, the various captains and the Head Boy and Head Girl from both sections were bestowed with their new roles, they were administered an Oath of Responsibility by our Principal. Our students solemnly pledged to do their best and be mindful, responsible leaders who would be role models for their fellow students. The event came to an end with the vote of thanks delivered by our PYP Coordinator, and the school community coming together to congratulate the new student council.
