                            INVESTITURE CEREMONY 2017-18

                            The Air Force School celebrated its Investiture Ceremony for the academic session 2017-18 on 28 July 2017 to formally invest its student council with their duties and powers.

                            The event started with welcoming the Chief Guest, Air Commodore M Mohanta, Principal Director School, Adventure and Sports, and the Guest of Honour, Wing Commander S M Sharma, Director of Education, The Air Force School. This was followed by the lighting of the ceremonial lamp.

                            Other highlights were the school choir which presented the group song and the group dance which was a classical fusion highlighting the eternal bliss of the fruition of hard work and sincerity. The rhythmic beats and synchronized movement lent an air of gaiety to the otherwise solemn occasion.

                            In her welcome address Ms. Amita Gupta, Principal, The Air Force School, said that a good leader never imposes his leadership. The aim of instilling leadership in the young TAFSIANS is to influence them to do things willingly. Ma’am also observed that everyone can become a leader in his own way by just doing the right things at the right time.

                            Chief Guest Air Cmde M Mohanta graced the Oath Taking ceremony and formally invested the school appointees. In continuation with the proceedings the Head Boy and the Head Girl invested the house appointees.

                            Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Guest congratulated the new leaders, reminding them that their actions should take them to the ultimate goal of making significant contribution to the betterment of the school. He reiterated saying that future belongs those who work hard. He said that the sky is the limit as there are footprints on the moon.

                            The Vote of Thanks was given by Ms Lomina Rajiv, Vice Principal, The Air Force School. Thanking everyone for their contribution in making the event successful, Ma’am expressed the hope that the new appointees would live up to the expectations of the institution.

                            The ceremony came to an end with everyone rising to the tune of the Air Force Schools’ song.
