The Schools hold formal Assemblies at the beginning of term, on resumption from mid-term holidays, and at the end of term. Formal Assemblies serve as a point of take-off for the resumption of academic activities. The Headmasters and Supervisors officiate at formal assemblies. Morning assemblies are held every day of the school week (Mondays to Fridays).
The daily assemblies for the primary, junior and senior secondary schools take different forms. The primary schools have a constant format. The following format indicates the daily schedules for the junior and secondary schools:
Monday: All students and sta meet at the School’s Assembly Hall
Tuesday: All students of each House meet their respective House masters/mistresses in the classrooms.
Wednesday: Class meetings (various classes meet their form tutors in the classroom)
Thursday: Hymn Practice (All st udents and the Music Master meet at the Assembly Hall)
Friday: All students and sta meet at the Schools Assembly Hall.
Assemblies are normally held for ten minutes. At assembly, a hymn is sung, followed by readings from the scripture. A prayer is said, the national pledge/anthem is recited or sung. General or particular announcements (if any) are made. After the announcements students and sta disperse to their various classrooms/offices.
