“Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
- Harold R Mc Alindon.
The Investiture ceremony for the session 2012-13 was yet again a special occasion where School entrusted upcoming leaders. The older council by tradition, relinquished responsibility to the new council in grace and by example. The received the responsibility, with a pledge to preserve the pride of School.
The auspicious ceremony began with a musical rendition of a string of shlokas by the School choir. Dr. Mrs. Nayana Goradia, vice-chairperson and Mr. Lal Raisinghani, director, alongwith teachers and parents of the office-bearers were present to bless the proceeding.
Principal ma’am welcomed the guests and announced the names of the new council members. Anmol Arora and Amrita Dutta were named Senior Head boy and Head girl respectively followed by Shiv Gupta and Krithi Bajaj, Junior Head boy and Head girl respectively. By turn then, house-captains were named and took their pledges.
Each member had the proud privilege of the School sash and badge and not one missed the myriad and weighty meaning that both carried. It was simultaneously a moment of pride and of humbleness. Of authority with accountability. And above all service.
