Investiture Ceremony

“We cannot always build the future of our youth but
We can always build our youth for the future”
It is probably in school that leaders are born, as students get their lessons in leadership from schools where they serve as Captains, Prefects and more. The Prefectorial Board of Shanti Asiatic School for the academic year 2016-17 was installed at an impressive ceremony held at School on 29th April 2016. The ceremony took place in august presence of the Chairman of the School, Sh. Dinesh Goyal. Lt. Gen. Sh. Sumer Singh, AVSM, Retd was the Guest of Honour of the programme.
Director Principal Ms. Neelima Sharma administered the oath to the School Captain, Vice Captain, and other office bearers, and Guest of Honour Lt. Gen Sumer Singh administered the oath to the House Prefectorial Board of the School.
Speaking on the occasion the Principal asserted that the Prefectorial system had been developed to enhance the leadership potential amongst the students. She said if your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more only then you are a leader.
The Guest of Honour for the occasion presented Sashes and House Flags to the Captains and Prefects. An energetic and message filled school anthem sung by the school choir and cultural programme set the ambience. The presence of the Parents of the Prefects encouraged them a lot.
The Guest of Honour in his address emphasised that the programmes like Investiture Ceremony are momentous school functions for laying the foundation of the culture which eventually churn out leaders of future. The programme concluded with the singing of the national anthem. The solemn occasion will remain memorable for the Prefects all their life.
