“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then you are an excellent leader” – Dolly Parton
Investiture Ceremony is a solemn occasion where all the young students are prepared to don the mantle of leadership and discharge the responsibilities entrusted upon them by the school. MBIS taps in the budding young leaders and entrusts the responsibility of true leadership in them.
The invincible spirits of our young leaders resonated in our hearts a burning torch and set a trail to welcome the new leaders, Student Council 2021.
Nominations poured in with motivating speeches and creative videos and posters as part of the online campaign. As quoted by Charles Dickens “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”, we see history repeating itself, however, these invincible moments have become a pillar of hope and a new platform to harvest the skills needed for an advanced well-developed world.
The occasion was graced by Smt. Mainadeviji Bajaj – Chief Guest, Shri. Kailashji Kejriwal – Guest of Honour, Mr. Ashok Saraf – President and Trustee, RSET and Ms. Archita Rajpuria, Trustee.
From its inception to its 12th year, MBIS has grown to provide wings to the students’ dreams. Thus the Investiture Ceremony is not just any ceremony but it is a remarkable day as we celebrate the birthday of our dear Founder Smt. Mainadeviji Bajaj, truly inspiring and guiding light of MBIS.
