Sher Captain

Sher Captain Speech

“Great leaders never set out to be leaders, they set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role – always about the goal.” Good morning to one and all present here. Firstly, I would like to thank all the teachers and Principal Ma’am for nominating me for this post. Now, let’s get down to business. Sherites, my name is Chinmay Thakar, and nothing would make me happier than to be your next captain.

Let’s be honest. Even though we have had some amazing leaders in the past, Sher hasn’t exactly been known for finishing at the top of the table. How many of you have won the Top Cat? We need to fix that, don’t we?

Each and every one of us needs to step up and prove our worth. I can see the potential, but the drive to win may not be there at all times. That’s one thing I intend to change.

I won’t bore you with a list of my achievements, because y’all know me well enough, I am not that kind of guy! One thing is for sure, I promise to be impartial, and will hear each and every one of you out. If I become captain, this will not be a group of people telling the house what to do. No. This will be a partnership, where all of us will have equal responsibilities and an equal voice.

As a captain I will push you to your limit, but guys, I need a response. Nothing is possible if we don’t work together, but the sky’s the limit when we do. I mean, come on, how long can you keep a lion away from its prey?

If you want the Top Cat, I need each one of you to make a promise to yourself. I need each one of you to promise that you will give everything for our house this year. Fulfil that promise, and we’ll give the other houses a run for their money.

Sher, it’s up to you now. You have the power, you have the chance to ensure a bright year ahead. Make the right choice, and I won’t just be your voice. Make the right choice, and we’ll all have a voice.

Remember, Chinmay Thakar for Sher Captain. Vidya Valley is my home, but Sher is my family.

About Me

I am Chinmay Thakar, and I have been elected as the Sher Captain for the year 2020-21. I am the captain of the school basketball team that won the under-14 ZP tournament, and have represented the school in various competitions and quizzes. I am a part of the school’s Space Settlement Design Competition team that reached the Asian round, and is now making a bid for the international round. I was selected for the Infosys Catch Them Young Program, and our team stood second.

My Goals For The Year Are

  • To keep the house united and work together as a team.
  • Giving everyone a chance to showcase their talents in their respective fields and encouraging and monitoring active participation of each member.
  • Resolving conflicts in an unbiased manner.
  • Discipline and commitment will be my top priorities.
  • Being a supportive leader.
  • Being a friend and a supporter, and providing steady leadership throughout the year.

Why I Want To Be Captain

I have always enjoyed group activities, but I do not feel like I have taken initiative in the past like I should have. This is my chance to both help the house and become a better leader. I feel that I am very approachable and can easily connect with people. Based on the comments from my peers, I do not lose my cool in tough situations, and remain calm. These will surely help me be a good leader, and keep the team together through all the struggles.

Now that I have received this opportunity, I will give 100% towards giving justice to this post. Here’s to a great year ahead.
