Investiture Ceremony (2021-22)

October 15, 2021

Once again, the Newton Hall reverberated with great vibrancy and excitement as the much awaited investiture ceremony commenced, marking the creation of a new student council for the year 2021-22. The event was live streamed for the student body who had logged in from home to attend the special celebration.

A soul stirring prayer sung by the school choir, under the able guidance of the talented Music Team led by Mr. Hazra, Mr. David Lal and Mr. Prateek Lal, set the tone for a solemn yet joyous event which the children have waited for eagerly. Each elected captain was welcomed on the stage by a thunderous round of applause from the audience. Hands on their hearts, they vowed to uphold the principles that had brought them this honour and to work with diligence and honesty in the myriad duties that lie ahead for them. The Council was presented with badges of their posts by the Director, Mr. Atul Khanna, School Principal, Ms. Sangeeta Sekhon and the Vice Principal, Ms Nisha Kaul.

In an informal, conversational speech Mr. Khanna reminisced about his own journey as a student, and how it led him to setting up the Strawberry Fields schools, as a place which could be a home away from home, where the children could feel safe and happy, surrounded by an extended family of devoted teachers, didis and bhaiyas. It was a refreshingly candid address, straight from the heart, and every child sitting in the auditorium felt included and appreciated.

The ceremony concluded with a vote of thanks from the newly elected School Captain, Aadya Batra, followed by the National Anthem.
