Interact Club's Installation Ceremony


On the 15th of May 2018, the Interact Club held its annual Installation Ceremony, during which the baton of responsibility was handed over from the JC2 Interactors to the JC1 Interactors. This year, we were privileged to have Mr Ozan Turay, the Youth Service Director of the Rotary Club of Tanglin, Interactors from various schools as well as our principals and teachers grace the event.

The Installation Ceremony started off with inspiring and heartwarming speeches by our principal, Mr Low Chun Meng, and our Guest of Honour, Mr Ozan Turay.  Following this, the outgoing president, Javier Wan, gave a speech about his takeaways from his journey as an Interactor and gave a review of the Club’s activities in 2017. During his speech, he thanked his fellow batch mates and his Executive Committee (EXCO) members for placing their trust in him as their president and encouraged the upcoming JC1 batch to forge stronger friendships with one another during their time in Interact Club. Following the speech by the outgoing president was a handover ceremony from the JC2 to JC1 EXCO and subsequently, a speech by the new president, Matthew Sim. This milestone occasion ended off with a stupendous and touching performance by the outgoing JC2 EXCO which feature songs such as "Miracles" and "This is Me" by Coldplay and Keala Settle respectively. The song "Miracles" aimed to convey to the JC1s that interactors should not be discouraged by setbacks and continue to have the heart to serve, while the song ‘This is me’ conveyed the message that as long as the members are unified by the spirit of interact- the common goal to serve, the differences between individuals do not matter. The Interactors also had the opportunity to mingle with Interactors from other schools allowing them to forge strong friendships and learn more about the activities of the other clubs.

The Installation Ceremony was definitely a memorable experience for all of us and I am confident that the JC1 Interactors will continue the legacy of their JC2 seniors.
