Investiture Ceremony 2021
"The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things." - Ronald Reagan
Indraprastha believes that it is important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities, and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills.
Student leadership development helps create skills that the students can carry over to adulthood. Indraprastha, with its motto, ‘Teach Each Child, Develop Whole Child,’ gives the golden opportunity to every student to prove their mettle and rise against all obstacles as a leader every year. The Investiture Ceremony 2021 was a great success, with Vivek Maggo from XII AIII and Paakhi Baranwal from XII BII leading the school with Head Boy and Head Girl titles for the session 2021-22. Many students were bestowed upon with the distinguished titles of respective President, Vice-Presidents for several school societies like, the Literary Society, Debating Society, Cultural Society, etc.
At Indraprastha, leadership is a skill for life, and we ensure all students have regular opportunities to be involved and strengthen their skills. We sincerenly take pride in our young leaders and are certain that they will do justice to their respective posts as the leaders of today.

It is the spooky mystical characters which bring the story alive. These characters are the lifeline of a child’s imaginary world. They are the heart and soul of a great literature.

Much like charity begins at home, health, hygiene and sanitation begin with us .With the increase in health risks to humans, it has become very important to stay hygienic. The lack of hygiene in the world has played a vital role in triggering several chronic diseases. It has become mandatory to fight the war of hygiene in order to provide a healthy world to our future generations. This habit of hygiene needs to be developed from a younger age. The children need to be taught the importance of both personal hygiene and healthy diet. With these thoughts as the force within, Indraprastha International School hosted an “Online General Knowledge Quiz”, on the topic-Health, Hygiene and Diet for the students of classes VIII and IX on Apr 11, 2020.
The event witnessed enthusiastic participation from students of Indraprastha World School and Indraprastha Global School in the presence of Dr Rajesh Hassija(Director, Indraprastha International School) and Heads of all the branches.
