Annual Oath Taking Ceremony at Roots Millennium School & College
The ceremony begun with the recitation of the Holy Quran by Angbeen Khalid, followed by the National Anthem. The ceremony then proceeded to Ma’am Meena and Ma’am Tehmeena discussing the importance of the ceremony taking place today and how this day forward it is up to the children to live up to the expectations kept from them and to honour themselves and their peers by making them proud and owning their position and all the responsibility that comes with it. Proceeding forward, all the elected students were awarded the sashes by the Principal of our college, Ma`am Tehmina Khalid, Ma`am Mehnaz Meena Gul Nasir, Head Mistress and Ma`am. Nazia Shah, Guidance Counselor.
Following that, Miss Ayesha, the chief guest gave an inspirational speech which left many students in awe of her success despite the hardships she faced to achieve it and how they aspire to persist in the face of adversity like she had. In hopes to involve the students more, she preferred to have a talk with the students than to give a speech therefore, she asked all the students a question; “What is something you want changed in the legislation?”
Many students were quick to respond with topics they felt passionate about. The responses ranged from ‘Environmental Conservation Laws’ to ‘No expected grades this year’ to ‘Free Education for all’. After this very informative discussion, all students stood up from their seats, raised their right hands as a show of promise and repeated after Miss Ayesha taking their oath solemnly swearing to not abusing their position and making sure they prove themselves worthy of the position they have been granted.
The ceremony ended on a very positive and light note discussing the importance of our actions and how deeply they impact other students and that put an end to an extremely enlightening ceremony.
