Investiture Ceremony 2022
The investiture ceremony at NPS Koramangala is always a celebration of the journey called life, where student leadership is a crucial milestone. On 24th June 2022, the auditorium, after two long Covid years, once again reverberated with the resonating beats of mridangam, tabla; lively violin notes accompanying the melodious invocation prayer Maithreem Bhajata, which was originally sung by Bharat Ratna Dr. M S Subbulakshmi at the United Nations on Oct. 23, 1966, on the occasion of the UN day. The jubilation when 71 students were invested with the golden badge of leadership in various capacities in the Student Council 2022-23 echoed through school. This year’s Investiture ceremony was special in the way that for the first-time students self-nominated themselves for the Club they were capable of representing, making it a student-empowering two-way process. Addressing the gathering, Principal Ms. Jyotsna Nair talked about the stiff competition the nominees had to face to secure the coveted positions. Ms. Nair underscored the importance of constant hard work and the need to contribute valuably to the respective clubs. The principal assured the student community that any viable innovative idea/proposal will be accepted by the school as change is always welcome at NPSK.
Ms. Abha Gairola’ inspiring speech urged the leaders to be selfless and strive to make the world a better place. Amidst loud cheering and thumping, the badges for prestigious clubs were announced which were bestowed by the principal and the coordinators to the proud bearers of the new office. The School Prefect, Ankita Anand pledged to work together to raise the bar and keep the NPS flag flying high.
Taking forward the revered legacy of the institution, the school flag, sports flag, and the flags for the four Houses were handed over to the new leaders. An English song by the students of Grades 4- 10 and a semi-classical dance by the students of Grade 8 was greatly admired. The alumni turnout in a large number exuded warmth and charm to the whole occasion.
