Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.
- Vince Lombardi
Leadership is an important trait that needs to be nurtured among the students at young age. They need exposure, opportunity and reassurance. These traits are established and perpetuated in students through making separate houses and assigning separate duties to students. For this purpose, Investiture ceremony was held at BAPS Swaminaryan Vidyamandir, Randesan on 21st June, 2017.
Chief Guest, Shree Pankaj Gupta (Sr. VP, IL & FS, GIFT City, Gujarat), was present to award the badges and inspire them for leadership. In total, 35 students were provided with Badge of Responsibilities. They included Head Girl, House Captains, class monitors etc. (List is provided below)
