“Leadership is not a position or a title, it’s action and example!” – Massimo Monotone.
The yearly Election process of electing the School Head Boy, Head Girl, the Sports Captains and the House Captains and Vice-Captains, took place in the school campus in the 2nd and 3rd weeks of June. The objective of conducting this event every year, is not only to elect the school leaders, but also to apprise the students of Grades V to XII, how through a democratic election system, the adult citizens of our country elect the representatives of the states.
The procedure followed in the school reflects the same system of campaigning, voting and investiture of the real election system of India. The Head Boy and Girl and the Sports Captains were selected by the Management and teachers prior to the election. Campaigning for the posts of House Captains and Vice-Captains were conducted after that. Through speeches and posters, the nominated students tried to persuade the voters of their respective Houses to vote for them. All the students of Grades V to XII cast their votes, through a fair digital process at the school Computer Labs on 17th of June, and the results were declared on 20th.
The new School Committee was formed and took the Oath of Office on 27th of June. The Investiture Ceremony 2022 was all the more special, because it was another event to earmark the return-to-normal course of life. Like every TKS programme, this was another grand one, and was done with appropriate solemnity and ceremony.
The proud new leaders were invested with their responsibilities and pledged to discharge their duties with honesty, diligence and sincerity. Principal Ms. Waddan urged the new School Council Members to reflect on how they want to be remembered by their friends, and work accordingly, with empathy and understanding.
