Election and Investiture in Middle School
Investiture Ceremony 11th Sep 2008

With the new school year well on its way, it is election time in the primary, middle and senior school. The primary and the middle school have already chosen their council and the excited council members have already planned out activities such as teacher’s day.

There was a whole election campaign going on in middle school. There were colorful badges, stickers and bracelets floating all around with the candidates’ names. The students had to be creative and come up with names for their campaigns. Some that really stood out were SMILE (which actually was the winning campaign). The students put in a lot of effort and creativity into designing their campaign, that is why I guess it took so long for the teachers to decide the actual outcome of the elections(more than 2 weeks!!), which was a bit long for eager hearts to be waiting. But everyone was satisfied with the results in the end.

Proud parents and teachers looked on as their students/children were given badges by Dr Naidu and the president and the four house captains were handed over the flags by the outgoing council. The 2 guests of honors both gave their very motivating speeches. The investiture ceremony which I attended, had Mr. Sandeep Choudhry giving a very encouraging and an interactive speech to the audience. He gave the example of the movie “Taare Zameen Par”, and said that each child is special and that shines like a star in his/her own field.

There was also a power point presentation showing the pictures of the students elected, which was very creatively done. The teachers involved in organizing the whole event certainly deserve to be applauded, for the event ran smoothly without any glitches.
The ceremony was followed by some refreshments for the parents and teachers. The students, after their hours of practice on how to hold the flag properly and at what pace to walk in, executed their tasks to perfection. All in all a very deserving group of students and hope they live up to the expectations of everyone, especially their peers.

Middle school held the Investiture Ceremony on the morning of 11th September, 2008. At the Investiture Ceremony, the School Director, Dr. Sarvesh Naidu formally gave the school badges to the elected student council members.

To grace the occasion we had, Mr. Sandeep Chaudhry, an accomplished and skilful writer and his wife - Mrs. Manisha Chaudhry, she produces television programs. The esteemed couple are management consultants and recipients of many prestigious awards as well. Also present at the ceremony was Mrs. Susan Lobo, an artist and a Training Manager with leading airlines.

As a part of the traditional ceremony, parents of the newly elected student council were cordially invited to be a part of the event.

The morning of 11th September was special as the parents, the special invitees, heads of the school and the board members started coming in at 9:00 am.

The show started at 9:30 in the morning with a very peppy song and School Orchestra welcoming the parents and guests.

It started with last year’s student council walking up to the stage with their house flags for handing over their formal responsibilities to the new members. With the new student council walking up the stage, it looked very graceful and surely it was an important day in the lives of the elected members of the council. As Pranay Jain, last year’s Vice President and an experienced council member gave his message to the new team, the council members listened in rapture.

The new student council members, walked up to the stage and got their badges, this was followed by an oath full of promises by them.

A few words of encouragement and best wishes by Dr. Naidu, Mrs. Lobo, and our other chief guests closed the ceremony and started a new journey for the new student council.
