Students are an integral part of the society. They are the citizens of tomorrow and hence it becomes pertinent that they understand their role as responsible members of the society.

In ROYAL GLOBAL SCHOOL, we rightfully teach our students, not to be followers, but leaders, and do what they think as RIGHT and not what others think. Hence, we have built up a strong ‘Student Council’, with thorough selection mode based on their capabilities, an urge to take responsibility, academics, sportsmanship qualities and a heart to do things differently. On this trail, we have been able to train up our future leaders to become winners as: “Being a winner is much different from having the potential to win. Everyone has the potential; it’s what you do with that potential that really matters”. Our selection method is based on the pro-activeness of the willing candidates, teachers’ panel along with the Principal, who witness their candidature speech and then decide on the most able leader. The leaders thus chosen form the backbone of our RGS infrastructure, presented through a ceremonious investiture ceremony, presided over by a great personality as chief guest; to further imbibe the true spirit of leadership, marching withthe beat of the school Brass Band; they are adorned with the most coveted badges, sashes and the special tie, amidst a solemn ceremony.
