Importance of School Assembly

Education Information

In a good school, all students assemble at the beginning of the school day in one place, usually in the school hall where prayers are held, news is read out, and instructions are given. Sometimes, students are required to make a speech or the principal makes some announcement if necessary.

School assembly clarifies school activities and programmes and focuses on co-curricular life. It strengthens work of the school. School assembly should be conducted with complete and active participation of students. Morning assembly should be well-planned.

A teacher-in-charge and a committee of students can plan and implement school assembly on a regular basis. Maintaining a black-board to display daily news can also be a part of morning assembly. This news could be pertaining to the school, local community, the state or the nation.

Purposes of a school assembly include the following:


i. To develop a feeling of affiliation and unity among students.

ii. To acquaint students with the school programme more clearly.

iii. To develop in students a sense of identity with the school.

iv. To enable students to share their experiences, stories, anecdotes with others.


v. To provide them training in good social behaviour desired in public life.

vi. To motivate students by positive reinforcement in the form of praise or rewards awarded in public.

vii. To celebrate national festivals, Independence Day, republic day, birth days of great leaders and so on. These leaders could be political leaders, scientists, poets, writers and so on.

viii. To facilitate moral and religious development of students.


ix. To facilitate national integration and secularism through all-religion prayer meetings among students.
