True education prepares a child for life, and to lead a life of quest, queries, and wisdom and to facilitate the same, the school provides an apt platform, the Prefectorial Board. The Investiture ceremony was held at VDJS on 15th August to bestow responsibilities along with authority, on the deserving young sparks of the school.
The leaders in the making, Class Representatives of Classes IV-XII and the Captains of the various sports were adorned with badges of honour and duty by DOAC, SSC, MSC, and the sports coaches. The Round Square and IAYP Representatives received their badges from the respective coordinators. Ma’am Principal, Ms Shalini Mehrotra and the four House- Mistresses gave the saches, pinned the badges and handed over the flags to the Prefectorial Board. It was followed by the oath-taking ceremony, wherein, Ma’am Principal administered the oath to the newly elected ‘Prefectorial Body. The neutral prefects and the house captains solemnly pledged to endeavour without fear and favour and to always ensure that the school flag flutters high with pride. A streak of enthusiasm and dedication overwhelmed the aura of the newly appointed prefectorial board ready to meet challenges with care, ready to be soft yet firm. The Jindalites’ excitement reached a new high while they took an oath towards their respective houses.
Ma’am Principal hailed the newly appointed School Cabinet Members for venturing into the realm of responsibilities, where they have to lead by example and not by instruction. She also exhorted them to dispense their duties while leading themselves and others on the right path with sincerity and to bring pride to everyone by upholding the values that the school stands for. The Vidya Devi Jindal School fraternity extends its heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected leaders.
