A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He or she does not set out to be a leader but becomes one by the equality of his or her actions and the integrity of his or her intent. The sunrise in SBPS today witnessed a very important event of the year – The Investiture Ceremony for the academic session 2017-18. The programme commenced with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by the school principal and by the house wardens. The chosen pacesetters were escorted to the venue with the rhythmic beat of the band. The badges were handed over to the office bearers for the post of Head Girl, Head Boy, Vice Head Girl, Vice Head Boy and the Sports, Cultural and Literary Secretaries. The House wardens of the four houses Rigveda, Samveda, Yajurveda and Atharvaveda delegated the duties to the pioneers for the stature of House Captain, House Vice Captain, House Prefect and House Vice Prefect. The auditorium reverberated with the confident voices of the office bearers taking the oath administered by the Head Boy.The ceremony drew to a close with the students singing the National Anthem.
