Annual Assembly is conducted annually for each grade from Preschool to Grade VII. It is a spectacular event for parents where students present different curriculum-based performances on various themes and topics, such as environmental issues, cultural diversity, historical events, etc. The programme’s speciality is that each student participates in the performances presented in the Annual Assembly, showcasing their skills and talents in singing, dancing, acting, reciting, and more. Each student’s participation in the programme not only develops their confidence but also inculcates the team spirit. They understand at a very young age that it takes the effort of every member of the class to make the event successful.

It is always a proud moment for the students when they get much praise from their parents and other visitors for the artwork done by them.

Young students are engaged in different social service activities to instil a sense of responsibility towards their community and society. The social service activities involve the students in different communities and social causes, such as education, health, environment, etc. Some examples of the social service activities that the students participate in are:
- Grade III students who learn about the Community in their Social Studies curriculum collect stationery items from their class and other students. Then they visit the community school located in the same locality as our school and donate the collected stationery items. They also interact with them and help them in cleaning their school. With this activity, they learn to share things with the less privileged children and appreciate their resources.
- Grade VI students visit a community school every year and interact with Grade VI students of that school. During their interaction, our students share the teaching methods and tools used in their classes, the job chart, classroom rules set up by the students, book reviews etc. They also learn how classes are conducted in the community school, where the students have limited access to technology and facilities. This activity helps the students to exchange knowledge and experiences and develop mutual respect and understanding.
- Grade IX students volunteer at an old age home and assist the staff and elders in various tasks, such as cleaning, distributing, organising, etc. They also spend time with the elderly residents staying in the old age home and entertain them with stories, games, songs, etc. This activity enables the students to serve the people in need and develop empathy and compassion.
Apart from these curriculum-based social service activities, all the students are encouraged to participate in different social service activities, such as blood donation, tree plantation, fund-raising, etc. These activities help the students to become responsible and caring citizens of the world.
