Investiture Ceremony (Middle & Sr. School) 2014-15

On the 3rd of May, 2014, the entire SJA family congregated in the school Auditorium to witness the most solemn affair of the year- the Investiture Ceremonies for the Middle and the Senior School Student Councils for the year 2014-15. The Chief Guest for the occasion was Major General Kunwar Digvijay Singh, Army General Officer, Uttarakhand, and Mrs. Tripti Kunwar.

The programme started with a prayer and the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by the Chief Guest. This was followed by a graceful and beauteous prayer dance to invoke the blessings of the Almighty.

A PowerPoint presentation on ‘Leadership’ followed this. Next in line was a presentation depicting SJA’s Role of Honour through the years- Josephites who have proven to be great leaders in their lives and left a trail for others to follow.

It is said that ‘A leader knows the way, shows the way and goes the way’. It was in this spirit that the Middle School Council members marched up to the stage to take the oath of duty and responsibility towards their school.

The choir then sang ‘Reach For the Stars’, inspiring the audience.

What followed was the most awaited event of the day- the Investiture Ceremony for the Senior School Council. The Council members, marching smartly up the aisle in time with the drumbeats, filled the onlookers’ hearts with joy and admiration. They were administered the oath of honesty and sincerity towards the school by the Principal, Rev. Bro. Dennis Joseph. Then the Chief Guest, the Principal, the respective House Moderators and the Co-ordinators pinned the badges onto the newly-appointed office-bearers.

Thereafter, the Chief Guest gave an eloquent speech, reminicsing his days as a student in St. Joseph’s. He said that the tradition of electing the school Council started in 1970, and since then, had been instilling zeal and fervour in the students’ hearts. Lastly, the Principal offered the vote of thanks, wherein he also related an incident from the life of Alexander the Great, highlighting the qualities of a true leader.

The programme ended on a high note, with everyone joining in to sing the school song- a proud and awe-inspiring moment for every Josephite.

To stand on the Auditorium stage and take the oath of office is not success in itself, but the first step to it. As Ben Parker said, ‘With great power, comes great responsibility’. This is the adage that should forever inspire the newly elected Council, and encourage them to achieve greater heights
