G.D. Goenka World School Starts Interact Club

On the 6th of September 2012, the members of G.D. Goenka World School’s Interact Club, which has been recently started attended their first District Interact Leadership Assembly (DILA) at Apeejay School Sheikh Sarai, New Delhi. The crowd at the Apeejay School’s auditorium came alive when the Chief Guest, Mrs. Kiran Bedi came up to the dais to speak. She captivated the audience with extremely inspirational words. According to Mrs. Bedi, “Motivation, Persistence and Perseverance” are the distinct traits of determined, dedicated individuals who can make things happen. She interacted with an audience of about 1300 students present at the assembly and exchanged ideas on youth awareness and personality development.

The function started by pinning of badges by various Rotarians. This was followed by a series of performances by the students of Apeejay School who first of all elaborated upon the past, present and future activities of the Interact Club through short reports and then performed a cultural item.
At the assembly, the District Governor, Mr Ramesh Aggarwal spoke about his experience. In the brief training sessions that followed for the young interactors from various schools, senior Rotarians guided the interactors on how to organize various projects, hold meetings and utilize the handbook of the Rotary International about the various activities and projects.

The assembly was a wonderful experience as it enabled all of us to meet and to know Interactors from other schools and share views and ideas on various topics.

It was indeed an honor to be a part of such a wonderful function among various dignitaries and well-wishers.

The following students attended the assembly - Zuber Singh, Paurush Bali, Aditya Khanna, Sana Khanijo, Sakshi Bhargava, Ksheerja Batra, Yash Gupta and Zaigham Hameed Butt. They were accompanied by Miss Sona Bindra -the teacher-in-charge.
