Leaders are not born but are made by their experiences in life”. To inculcate the leadership qualities in students and to give them a feel of functioning of the administrative body, the Student Council was formed at Shalom Presidency School and the Investiture Ceremony was held on the 11th of May, 2017 in the Conference Hall.

The auspicious occasion was graced by the presence of MD Ma’am, Dr. Mrs. Lily George, the founder Managing Director of the Shalom group, Vice Chairman Sir, Mr. Dennis George, Director Ma’am, Mrs. Karishma George. ’A good leader inspires others with confidence in him, a great leader inspires them with confidence in themselves’. Holding true the popular saying, our leadership brought forth a tide of positive energy and a sense of purpose as they addressed the students and teachers alike. Their presence brightened up the occasion and filled the air with enthusiasm.

The Investiture Ceremony thus marked the inaugural of the Student Council for the academic session 2017-18. The ceremony began by seeking the blessings of the almighty, lighting of the lamp by MD Ma’am, followed by a crisp march past by the Student Council. As the young scholars geared up to lead by examples and fulfill the roles and responsibilities vested upon them, they took a pledge to be the change they want to see in others.

As V.C Sir eloquently narrated the pledge, the hall reverberated with the echo of it, all the students kept their hands across their hearts to receive the wisdom of the pledge and the Student Council solemnly took the oath. The Head Boy and Head Girl assured the audience while addressing them, that they would uphold the values and ethos of the school with utmost dignity and will carry out the duties with sincerity. The Student Council looked prepared and confident to face the challenges and take up the responsibilities assigned to them.

The ceremony ended by marking a new beginning in the lives of the young scholars as they marched with pride and confidence and hall echoed with the school song.
