Investiture Ceremony 2012-13

“With great power, comes great responsibilities.” - (Uncle Ben to Peter Parker)

30th June 2012 was a very auspicious day for the students as well as the staff members of Atmiya Vidya Mandir as it was the day of honouring the newly elected members of the student council. The ceremony started at 11:30 AM after the usual Saturday school hours.

The hosts of the ceremony Pranshu Savani and Abhishek Panchal first invited our Principal Dr Vijay Patel and Administrator Mr Harish Patel to perform poojan of Thakorji. Next came a mesmerising performance by the school’s choir of the song “I believe I can fly” with an able guidance from Somnath Sir. The group led by Raj Panpaliya, Siddharth Jain and Nirmal Patel left one and all present there with high spirits and hope and set a perfect stage for the oath taking ceremony of the new student council members.

The newly elected Head Boy: Vikas Patel, Vice Head Boy: Rohan Shingala, Sports Captain: Harshill Soni and the captains and vice captains of various houses marched towards the stage for the oath taking ceremony. They were followed by a highly enthusiastic team of house prefects. All the council members were then conferred their titles and responsibilities by the respective house teachers through pinning up the badges. These stars, shining due to their achievements, badges and most importantly their determination and humility, then took their oaths administered by the school principal.

The school then received an inspirational treat in the form of a group dance on the song “Lakshya” choreographed by Suhradam Sir. The new Head Boy Vikas Patel then conveyed his feelings to the school and appealed to all the students to excel in whatever they were involved in. Further, our principal Vijay Sir enlightened the newly elected student council members and all the students by his experience-filled-wisdom and urged everyone to ponder over the benefits of practicing “atmiyata” on a daily basis.

The head boy, vice head boy and the house captains then lit the sacred lamp marking the beginning of the new year full of challenges and achievements with sincere prayers to remain committed to atmiyata in whatever they would do. The ceremony ended with the school song and the lively hearts then marched to the school dining hall for a sumptuous lunch.
