The belief that every child is a potential mine of possibilities prompted our Student Cabinet in 2008 to organise an annual summit on Leadership for Head Boys and Head Girls of Delhi schools. The summit, LEAD ON, is an initiative that was then conceptualised and has since received an enthusiastic response from students of leading Delhi and NCR schools. Successfully bringing together future leaders for a decade now, Lead On! aims at bringing together the best young minds in an attempt to inculcate critical leadership skills and provide a common platform to inspire and be inspired.It comprises a Keynote Speaker’s address, Group Discussions, Presentations, Situational Challenges, and much more. Over the years we have invited celebrities who have made an indelible mark in the progress of India, people who the students identify with and are inspired by. Eminent personalities like Dr Kiran Bedi (IPS), Mr Pavan Kr Verma (IFS & Author), Mr Shashi Tharoor (M.P), Mr Varun Gandhi (M.P), Ms Agatha Sangma (M.P), Mr Naveen Jindal (M.P), Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar (M.P), Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad (M.P), Ms Smriti Zubin Irani ( Minister of Human Resource Development) and Mr Kirren Rijiju ( Union Minister of State for Home Affairs), have graced the event as keynote speakers in the past years.
In the last ten years, Lead On! has left no stone unturned in making young leaders of today become successful leaders of tomorrow.
The success and efficacy of this event has schools marking it on their annual calendar as something not to be missed.
|LEAD ON ! 2018|
The right leadership can bring about wonders and at its core level, leadership is all about understanding people. Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar organised their annual leadership summit, Lead On! 2018, on 4th December in the school premises. The heads of the Student Councils of nearly 30 schools of Delhi gathered here to participate in activities aimed at inculcating qualities of leadership in them. The day included a plethora of activities, including keynote speeches by two notable personalities: Mr. Subramanian Swamy, the noted Indian economist, statistician, politician and member of the Rajya Sabha, and the superstar Bollywood actor turned politician, Mr. Shatrughan Sinha. Their keynote speeches, in which they spoke about aspects of a leader, different dimensions of intelligence, their own personal lives, achievements and struggles, and various other topics, were the highlights of the day. Each speech was followed by a question and answer session, in which the students got an opportunity to interact with these two dynamic personalities.
During the course of the day-long event, the young future leaders of our country participated in various activities which made them introspect, debate and take roles of leadership among themselves, and also gave them an opportunity to network and socialise with the council members of other schools.Lead On! 2018 concluded with a fun yet challenging "treasure hunt" around the school. The event was efficiently organised by the students of Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar and all the participants gave an extremely positive feedback and exuberant praise about the intensive learning experience.
