Investiture Ceremony

October 30, 2015

The Investiture Ceremony happened the following morning, with the elected leaders receiving their badges, a symbol of the responsibility and trust reposed in them. Led by the head boy and head girl, the entire student council pledged to take up the responsibility of holding up the reputation of the school.

So, though many often joke that the phrase ‘Election Results’ is an anagram of the phrase ‘Lies, let’s recount’, this wasn’t the scenario of our school’s annual election, thanks to teamwork, collaboration and coordination, the three qualities that make a true leader.
