VS Student Leaders' Investiture 2008

Thu 21st Feb was Victoria School's 3rd Student Leaders Investiture. We were pleased and honoured to have Mr Soh Wai Wah (Senior Asst Commisioner for Police), former Victorian and Chief of Staff of Singapore Police Force, who graced the occasion.

SAC Soh gave us a unique insight into leadership as service to others. He spoke of the leader as a servant; not a master.
To illustrate this point, SAC Soh shared with us some incidents from his personal life to illustrate servant leadership and how it is the desire to serve that exemplifies a true leader:

Principal Mr Loh also shared with us how leaders should exhibit moral courage. In his address, he highlight an incident where one of our Victorians corrected the misbehaviour of another VS student in public and apologised to the member of the public on his friends behalf:

The true test of leadership doesn't lie in the claims that you make or the visions you state that you will achieve but in you willingness to do what is right.

That is the challenge we face each and every day of our lives- to do the right things and to do them right.
