Responsibility and leadership are important disciplines of the Sishya curriculum. While student body leaders such as Head Girl, Head Boy, and Sports Captain are nominated by the school authorities, the process of selection of House Captains is completely democratic. Electioneering and campaigning are highly involved, and the run up to the election has all the trappings of political canvassing—compelling rhetoric, colourful posters and banners, and interactive sessions and debates. Following the elections, all student leaders are formally invested in their positions in a solemn ceremony at the beginning of the year (February). The student office bearers and leaders wield responsibility in their tenure through the entire academic year, playing a decisive role in steering and representing the student body.
2018 started with the ringing in of a new batch of prefects dedicated to leading the student body to new heights of excellence in sports and cultural and academic events. This investiture ceremony held on the 25th of January, introduced the following leaders to their responsibilities.
