Special Assembly by the Prefects of
Class VIII (19 Feb 2020)
Prefects of Class VIII put up a special morning assembly on the theme of
leadership on 19 February 2020, for the students of classes VI to VIII.
Prefects, conducted the assembly with the objective of helping children
understand the true meaning of leadership. They spoke about the some of the
great leaders that the world has seen in history and in the recent times. They
highlighted incidents from the lives of inspiring personalities like Mahatma
Gandhi, Malala Yusufzai, J K Rowling, Greta Thunberg and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
They also spoke of the National Cadet Corps, and how their cadets instill the
spirit of patriotism among us.
Prefects enacted excerpts from the speeches that these personalities have delivered
which have changed the course of how the world is perceived today. These
enactments brought to light how a leader needs to be honest, sincere, brave,
dedicated towards a cause and how he must not let the difficulties of life
weigh him down. The primary objective of a true leader should be to lead by
example, and not just dictate procedures. He should face all hurdles head on,
and not whine and complain. The NCC is also an example of the zeal to fight all
odds and to love the Motherland selflessly. Daizel Dandona of VIII E recited a self-composed
poem on the theme of leadership.
audience seemed much moved by the performance of their Prefects. They
appreciated that their student leaders are embodiments of the values they spoke
of. The Vice Principal, Mrs Lomina Rajiv, applauded the Prefects’ efforts and
congratulated them on putting up an impactful assembly and gave them their
Prefect Certificates. She also appreciated the teachers who guided these
students in their endeavour.
