Usefull Assembly Section

Assembly session on ‘Thankfulness’ in progress at the GRG Matriculation Higher Secondary School in the city. The assembly sessions at GRG Matriculation Higher Secondary School are not just about saying the prayer and the national anthem. It is an opportunity for the students to express their creative skills, discuss relevant national issues and understand the basic values of human life.

Classes from IV to XII are given a chance to perform at the assembly and they can pick the themes from the list of close to a hundred themes drawn up by the principal of the school, R.Ravi. Some of the themes are choice, courage, forgiveness, good and evil, role model, success and failure, empathy, respect for elders, and disability. Each section will get an opportunity to handle three themes.

Though the session is only for about 15 minutes, the students get the message across to the school either by way of a skit, speech or song. “The best thing about the programme is that each child gets an opportunity to participate. It helps them become more confident and get over their stage fear,” Mr.Ravi says. The teacher appointed as the assembly in-charge guides them in finding information, compiling it and preparing the programme. “The practice also inculcates in us leadership skills and helps us expand our knowledge base,” says A.Subashree of Class X. The students collect relevant information from newspapers, the Internet and books.

The students of Class VIII are setting an example for the entire school in discipline. The class has adopted a set of resolutions and has sworn to abide by the self-imposed rules. Wearing neat uniform, walking in a single line whenever they went out of class, reaching class on time, maintaining silence in the classroom, and doing homework diligently are some among the rules the children have drawn up for themselves. They have also chalked out a list of penalties to be followed if they break the rules. “No body instructed them to draw up the rules. They came up with them themselves and are following it diligently. The teachers don’t even need to monitor them,” Mr.Ravi says. “There were a few defaulters in the beginning. But, all of us are particular about sticking to the rules,” says S.Kowshik of Class VIII.
