Archives – Special Assemblies 2015-16

Class Assemblies are an inherent routine in our weekly schedule. Besides providing the children an opportunity to interact with the larger group, it also provides a perfect platform for the children to introspect and interact on the core values of the school. To optimise the learning experience, the children are grouped according to age levels so that the activities correspond to their growing needs.
