The above quote came from none other than the President of Rotary, Khushnoor Chugh during her key note address at installation of new team of interactors at South Point School, Omkar Nagar Branch, Nagpur. She further advised the interact members to be equally lucky to Nation as they are to Rotary. The Rotary President said that 12300 Rotary club branches in the country will open doors for various community services. She insisted that students must develop team spirit, leadership and connect to each other by undertaking  activity collectively. She informed all the present about an activity wherein Rotary is planning to undertake cleanliness drive of parks and grounds on Sundays for the benefit of senior citizens.

The installation of new team began with the lighting of traditional lamp by the dignitaries and prayer sung by school choir. All the office bearers of the outgoing team welcomed the dignitaries on the dais with sapling. Besides feeling proud of her team having been adjudged best interactor award for the year 2014-15 outgoing president Miss Bhargavi was humble enough to quote that if someone can extend a helping hand or comforting gesture to needy despite having achieved or occupied a top position, it does not belittle someone’s status but on the contrary the very action is indicative of change in society for betterment. Miss. Bhargavi read out the activities undertaken by her team during their tenure and accepted that her team has now acquired a positive attitude and outlook towards life. She handed over the reins to the upcoming President Master Abhijeet Ragit for the year 2015-16.

The newly installed President Abhijeet  said in his address that his team wishes to protect the world from all evil & bad deeds. He reiterated to work sincerely on the theme of BE a Gift To the World and make the best use of the greatest gift from God I.e . life.

Principal of South Point School Dr.Mrs. Mrunalini Dasture narrated a short story through which she enlightened the students to work sincerely and honestly towards the realization of the objectives and lead the fellow office bearers by example of carrying out the responsibilities instead of just being a proxy who does not work in reality.
