In accordance with our ‘No Child left behind’ policy, the special assembly presentations are a joy to behold with every child in a class participating. The teacher’s creativity comes to the fore when she plans for themes like Water, The Army, Music, Books and many more. Students speak, dance. act, mime for a presentation. Planning and practice begins more than a month ahead of the D-day. Parents are invited to witness the presentations and invariably, one sees proud, ecstatic parents going back!
