Investiture Ceremony at Orchids, Mumbai


Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but by the presence of clear strengths – John Zenger.

Orchids The International School in Mumbai believes in achieving excellence through relentless hardwork and determination and enables the students to be successful and role models for others. The motto is to instill integrity, discipline and compassion into each student, achieving perfection in our school.

Leadership is influence. A good leader is a leader who believes in achieving excellence in every field. The school witnessed its first Investiture ceremony on 26th November, 2013. The event started with the traditional lighting of the lamp, followed by a prayer dance performed by our very talented stars. The elected student’s council members marched in sprightly holding the school flag high, along with the respective house captains. The look of pride towards the school flag showcased their confidence as the leaders of the future, torch bearers of tomorrow and guideline setters, providing direction to the other young children of our school.

The students were conferred with their respective post badges and sashes into office as council members and class representatives, followed by an oath of service, towards the school and their fellow students. This ceremony ended with an inspiring speech from the Principal, reminding the students that they are the pride of the school. The event also gave the parents a chance to develop a deeper sense of appreciation for their children. There was a huge round of applause from our respective dignatries, parents and teachers as our office bearers marched out. We believe that this first student council of Orchids The International School in Mumbai will have a great impact among students, guiding them in the right path and leaving a great legacy behind.
