Opening Ceremonies at my school

What I love best is that I blend in so well, you probably can't even find me! I'm standing with the women teachers. I asked what was the meaning of the two students who marched forward and then the principal put a hat on each one and a sign around their necks. I was told that this only happens at our school and the materials in the hat are all made from nature. Then I looked up what the sign on his neck said: Taufiq - God's help and I think the sign on the girl said: Tauhid - the doctrine of God's oneness.
