Dehradun, 25 Jul: The Investiture Ceremony for the year 2019-2020 was held at The Heritage School, here, today.
The programme had an auspicious start with the lighting of the Ceremony Lamp. The Chief Guest and the parents of the Office Bearers were given a warm welcome. At the outset, the Gayatri Mantra was sung which was followed by the song ‘Aya Mera Maan’ sung by the school choir.
This was followed by a slow march of the Student Council. After this, Neetu Saxena administered the Oath of Office to the Office Bearers. Then the Office Bearers received their colours and badges. To break from tradition, this time the parents of the Office Bearers were called to invest their wards. This was a very proud moment for them.
School Director Siddhartha Chaudhary and Principal Deepali Singh (North Campus) gave the school flag and the House Flags to the Captains. The Principal appreciated the school and gave her best wishes to the young leaders. She also congratulated the proud parents. One of the parents, Mrs Lamba, motivated the children and asked them not to be disheartened even if they were not chosen. She also asked the children to discuss all their problems with their parents and the teachers.
School Principal B Gill said that leaders were not born, they were created. The students needed to develop their own personality and be original. The programme concluded with the school song and National Anthem.
