Daily Assembly

Daily prayer begins with the peace mantra "Sahanavavatu", which has its origin in the Taittiriya Upanishad. This mantra is often used as a "universal prayer" to send the message of peace and prosperity. The mantra is used to invoke God's blessings for harmony amongst teachers and students.

A wonderful facet of the assembly is that all the programmes are managed and conducted by students. They voluntarily take up small tasks in the assembly programmes as per their liking and interests. They actively participate in various programmes such as:

  • conducting prayer
  • recitation of multiplication tables, Thirukkural, Athichudi
  • reading important news events of the day
  • asking questions based on science and general knowledge
  • demonstrating simple experiments in science

These routine features infuse in students the virtues of discipline, self confidence, co-operation and invaluable experience.

The role of teachers in conducting assembly programmes is that of facilitators. Teachers create newer experiences for students by preparing just the framework for the programmes, while letting students to conduct the programmes everyday in the assembly. Every student is given an opportunity to participate in the morning assembly.
