Overture, the Virtual Investiture ceremony of Interact Club of Apeejay Schools, conducted virtually on September 7, underlined the importance of putting service before self and paying back to society.

Addressing the audience, Dr Neha Berlia, Co-Promoter Apeejay Stya and Svran Group said members of the Interact club display a humanitarian spirit that is rare in today’s times. “Every year, they collect between 500 and 600 units of blood which is donated to those who require it the most. Even during these extraordinary challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic, they continued to exhibit this humanitarian spirit and managed to collect a sizable number of units of blood for donation.”

During the ceremony, Anup Mittal, Rotary District Governor 2021-22 for Delhi-NCR said that paying back to the community is the greatest service to humanity, irrespective of where one has reached in one’s profession. “The Rotary movement is an emotion. It is a movement for caring for the world and thinking beyond ourselves. Schools with Rotary clubs are carrying out greater responsibilities sometimes even more than district authorities themselves,” said Mittal. “At the individual level, even if every student resolves to educate any underprivileged member of the society, they can make a huge collective difference to the world,” he added.  

Raghav Chandra, President of Rotary Club of Delhi Premier, said Apeejay Schools continuously motivate their students to join the Rotary movement and promote the motto of ‘Service before Self’. “This helps them develop empathy and leadership skills and enables them to become the leaders of tomorrow.”

Chandra also quoted Greek Emperor Alexander’s iconic words: “There is nothing impossible to him who will try”.  

Chandra also conducted the oath-taking ceremony of the office-bearers of the Apeejay School Interact Clubs. These included Nitya Goel, Pranav Gaikwad, Sonal Butley, Anjani, Matangi Mishra and Aaryan K. Mehra.

Presidents of the Interact Club of the schools announced names of other members of their teams and shared the list of activities for the upcoming academic session.  An array of activities were mentioned including Kargil Vijay Divas, Anti- Tobacco Campaign, Yoga Day celebration, anger management workshop and a webinar on National Girl Child Day.  Various awareness projects were also proposed on topics such as Project Pink Ribbon (Breast Cancer), Project Cysec (Cyber crime), among others.
