The time-honoured ceremony of Investiture was held on 11th July 2014 at Primus Public school. The word Investiture is derived from the Latin roots “In” and “Vestes”, literally meaning “to dress in robes”. The implicit meaning, of course, is “to recognize one as a person of authority and bestow power.”
During the Investiture ceremony, newly-appointed prefects march proudly onto the stage to be “pipped” by their parents. It is a moment of great honour for these students who vow to wear the mantle of Prefecture with a solemn sense of duty and uprightness.
The day’s proceedings began with the School Song followed by the trooping in of the Prefects ably led by Mr. L. Ravi of the Sports department. The Master of Ceremonies, Mrs Rekha Phillip, then invited each Prefect to the stage. Teary-eyed parents pinned the badge of honour, signifying the child’s commencement of Prefecture duty. The event ended with the Bugler sounding the last post. After the event, Parents, House Leads and Prefects enjoyed high tea on the lawns. Check out the pictures here
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

It was on 15th July, a fine sunny morning that we were ordained to meet a very famous children’s author, Andy Cope. Quite a heartthrob amongst children for his ‘Spy Dog’ series, he visited our school and spoke to the students of grades 6 to 8.
It was a ‘connect at first sight’ for the children as well as the author! A beautiful stillness echoed all around and our children were enthralled by his talk! In his book, ‘The Art of being Brilliant’, Andy talks of the secrets of living an extraordinary, brilliant life. He got the children excited with a whole lot of interactive, fun games.
Our children did a marvelous job of creating posters on positive thinking, book covers for his book, comic strips and even wrote book reviews. When the children got a chance to meet the author of a book they’d read, they were undoubtedly energized, inspired, and imbued with a new appreciation of reading!
Andy has indeed stimulated the students as well the teachers in Primus, to live life in FULL COLOUR! Check out the pictures here
