This was followed by the recitation of the Quran, a prayer song and the Kuwait national anthem, by the school choir. What followed, was the main part of the ceremony, the Investiture of the Student Council. The council members marched forward in pairs and received their sashes and badges from the Chief Guest, the Director, the Principal and the KG Supervisor. The Prefects of classes 5 to 12 then marched forward to receive their badges, which was pinned on them by the wardens of the three houses.
