The Qui Coronation

SelaQui International School in Dehradun, one of the best CBSE boarding school in India, takes great pride in inculcating values of leadership to the many boys and girls (the SeQuins) who call it their home away from home.  The mission statement of SelaQui International School, counted among the top 10 boarding schools in India, identifies ‘Leadership’ as a key character trait to develop and imbibe in young men and women.

So, when the Investiture Ceremony rolls around every year and the new appointments for an academic year are decided, it is an occasion to celebrate the values of Leadership and Excellence.

Sweaty palms, parched lips, shivers down the spine. Now merge it all into one and you get what the SeQuins feel each time. And coincidentally enough, these were the reactions the audience experienced as the batch of 2017-2018 was crowned in the fields of leadership, excellence and meritorious conduct on the 1st of February, 2018 in the amphitheater.

The investiture ceremony began at 11:30 am and had everyone sitting with their fingers crossed. Speculations as to who’ll assume the mantle of leadership in which department had begun months, prior to the landmark event. While some declarations came as a surprise to most, other positions were somewhat expected. Nonetheless, both were welcomed with huge rounds of applause as the new group of appointees marched up the stage to receive their badges or captaincy.

Elaborating on the school policy, the Headmaster talked about pride, honor, duty and the responsibilities that come along with being a leader, a role model. Being able to guide the masses, compassion, empathy and integrity are marked characteristics integral to a sound leader. The opportunity given to this present group of students is definitely a ‘once in a lifetime’ thing – something that will be cherished for years to come. We sure hope, we don’t disappoint.

On Friday, the prefectorial dinner was held. The outgoing batch of prefects, new appointees, HOD’s and Housemasters were seen engaging in conversations and sharing light moments with one another.
