Assembly XI-B 07-08-2014

Topic: FRIENDSHIP BINDS ALL RELATIONS

The theme of the assembly is our relationships and bringing it to the level of friendship. We all may have myriad friends but to have someone who stays true to you no matter what, who has always got your back no matter how tough the times, and someone who is the pillar of your life, is a rare thing. It is not the number of friends you have that counts; it is the loyalty you show towards each other that matters.

The students of class XI ‘B, acknowledge this unwavering loyalty between friends, through their assembly.



Assembly X-G 06-08-2014

TOPIC- IMITATION IS LIMITATION

This topic brings out the uniqueness of each individual and emphasizes on believing in oneself rather than being dominated by others.

Each person is unique, no two people being the same and we must encourage each one to be themselves, to believe in one’s own perspective for the betterment of the human race.

Assembly XII-O 05-08-2014

Topic: ‘The Fault is Not in Our Stars’

People in the world are always ready to blame bad luck, circumstances, and even others for their own failures. They manage to convince themselves that their luck and fortune were not on their side and feel that they’re absolved.
The topic, “The Fault is Not in Our Stars” means that although circumstances may be tough, and life does throw challenges at us, it’s up to us to fight them to the best of our abilities. Everyone has some challenge to face, and there will be times when we fail. But even then, the fault will be ours, not in our stars.



Assembly XII-N 05-08-2014

Topic: ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’

Hunger is what unites all living beings in their need to fulfill it. Hunger is the driving force of the human race because when we push our limits to satisfy hunger, we evolve. Thus, one should always stay hungry, for more knowledge, more experience and more life.

Foolishness is what precedes wisdom, for a man can never have learned something new, something worthy without failing at something. Stay foolish, make mistakes because there is always the scope of learning, growing and flying higher even when you’re at the peak of success.
