Pupils respond in the affirmative, focused, positive, calm, and ready to learn

SEVAI Shanthi Matriculation Higher Secondary School considers that a high quality school assembly is one of the most important aspects of a school's curriculum. This School assembly is when the school community meets together to share aspects of life that are of worth. It acts as a medium for communicating matters of significance from one generation to another. Its potential to nurture a positive school ethos that stresses care for the self, others and the pursuit of all forms of excellence should not be underestimated. It powerfully nurtures the development of intrapersonal intelligence. Monday morning assembly is particularly important, as it brings the whole school back together again after the weekend break, to re-focus upon the week in view, on its objectives and the tools that will be used to achieve them. The SEVAI Shanthi Matriculation Higher Secondary School mentions, “School assembly is demonstrated in an assembly is a reiteration of the value of each individual pupil including their individual thoughts and abilities. There is a reiteration of the importance of those elements to the community and the secure place of each pupil within the school. The pupils are invited to consider their inner capabilities, their positive worth, their place in the community and their purpose for the week, and to do it from the touchstone of that month's positive value. Pupils respond in the affirmative, so that they are focused, positive, calm, and ready to start. The school community starts from the individual pupil and the value of each one, and allows them to see their part in their own world. What follows illustrates how school assemblies, in all phases of schooling, can make a positive contribution to pupil self-development and therefore be at the heart of raising achievement and standards and  a form of assembly that has been developed by planning to encourage pupils to reflect upon a set of universal values, such as love, peace, truth, co-operation and respect. These values act as the foundation for the development of personal, social and health education, citizenship and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of the curriculum”. -Govin
