Over the last one month, the school has been abuzz with activity -virtually, the students had to nominate themselves for one position and then went through a rigorous selection process of interviews and Group discussions, chaired by the Principal, Coordinators, and House heads. For the Senior School, a total of nine positions went for elections were Head boy, Head Girl, the Deputy head boy and deputy head girl, the Sports Captain, and the Committee Presidents.
The PYP council had the Sport’s Captain, Sports’s Vice-captain the members of the three committees – Literary, cultural, and CAS (each committee has a member from each house ) that went in for the election. All the House House positions across the school were selected through interviews.
What makes this Election and the Investiture ceremony special is the entire process was done virtually, from nomination to the election, and the investiture. That is definitely a first for all of us.
The investiture ceremony was held on 11th September for the Senior school and on 12th September for the PYP segment. The student council members had to send in a short video of their parents pinning the badge on to them. It was a proud moment for the parents and also for us as we watched the parents pin the badge on to their ward. All the videos were compiled and we had our first virtual investiture ceremony complete with the lamp lighting to the school song.
This process would have not been possible if all stakeholders did not come together seamlessly to make this a success.
