Respect is a basic moral value which means having due regard for the feelings, wishes and rights of others. In our life we go through different situations where we need to get along with others, that happens when we give respect. There are different ways of showing respect like saying Please and Thank you, listening without arguing and affirming with others.
If we don’t regard others, they will not respect us, and if we don’t respect ourselves, we won’t be regarded by others either. Receiving respect from others is equally important as it makes us feel safe and express ourselves confidently. When we feel safe being around each other we know it’s ok for both of us to express who we are and when we disagree, we listen to each other and be patient
We need to respect people, places, and things. We can show our respect to places and things by taking good care of things and dressing according to the traditions of the place.
Respect doesn’t come naturally – it is something you learn your whole life. We all must adapt ourselves in such a way that we acknowledge and respect each other’s views and opinions without any bias.
Last but not the least we must always remember to value ourselves and know that we matter.

Nature has bestowed its bounty upon all the creations. The shocking power of nature and the devastation caused by natural calamities including the ongoing pandemic has caused an incredible reaction: a worldwide desire to help the survivors. Hundreds of thousands of people living in the affected countries fed their neighbours, gave them shelter and comforted them in their grief. Across the world millions of individuals have responded by sending donations not only for those suffering from tragedies but for the general upliftment of the fellow human beings, animal and plant kingdom and making the environment better.
One of the ways of giving is to show respect to all people regardless of their social status, gender, age or caste. One of the best ways to give help is to offer it with utmost humility, compassion and above all let it be unconditional.

The power of Positive Thinking will show you that the roots of success lie in the mind and teach you how to believe in yourself, break the habit of worrying and take control of your life by taking control of your thoughts and changing your attitude.
Happiness is the secret to all beauty. There is no beauty without happiness. A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside. Think good thoughts, do good things for others, everything comes back! If each human being starts doing good to all, the world will become a paradise! The wealth of a rich person can be stolen but the happiness and wisdom of the wise remains. On this note, the students of class VIII - B, through their assembly, showed the importance of thinking good, doing good and smiling.
Many types of research showed that social awareness is a skill that is crucial to college and career preparedness.

The students of Class XI B presented an assembly about the significance of social awareness in our lives and how to enhance it while also sharing knowledge about the auspicious occasion of Eid-al-Adha. We wish everyone Eid Mubarak!
The assembly shed light on the need to change ourselves in order to achieve success in all areas of life, in spite of circumstances. The idea is to be ‘aware’ that we require changes and for that, the role of attitude counts.
Positive attitude may include the choice of positive words, while speaking or even thinking, forgiving and allowing oneself to move on, practicing gratitude, improving self-esteem, etc. The students of class 10A shared some quick tips to enable positive thinking like, a good night’s sleep, meditation and regular exercises, to push our brain to go the extra mile.
A Daily Positivity Kit, shared by a student, was much appreciated. It added a completely different perspective to the meaning of daily use items like a toothpick, rubber band, eraser, pencil, and a few more. For example, a toothpick can remind us to pick out the good qualities in others, instead of the negative ones.
Students had put forth their views that one must think that the best is going to happen, not the worst. Healthy, happy people think about what they want and how to achieve success. While success may lead to happiness, there is very little question that happiness also leads to success.
Our family and friends are the pillars of our strength and the center of our existence. We all know that but how often do we really appreciate these blessing on our life? Today the students of class V B narrated a story during the morning assembly which made us all realise the importance of people and relationships that we most often take for granted.
Over the years our society has seen many changes. We breaking the shackles of the past and embracing newer thinking are trying to modernize ourselves. But somewhere walking through the roads we sometimes shun our traditions, thinking these as backwards. The students of Class VII E, through their assembly, showed that Science and traditions have a strong connection. Students presented the scientific approach and benefits of many Indian traditions such as -joining our hands for “Namaste”, wearing and welcoming by “Chandan tilak or Kum-kum”, worshiping trees such as Peepal and throwing coins into the rivers etc. Through the assembly the students were encouraged to look for scientific reasons behind our Indian culture and tradition and also to share it with the others in order to benefit the society at large.
Students started by explaining how sun provides energy to all forms of life on earth and then explained the energy field of humans is affected by sunlight. The energy system comprising of three main channels and seven chakras was explained. The splitting of sunlight by various chakras to provide energy was beautifully captured. At the end, students showed various poses of SURYA NAMASKAR and how it strengthens the physical body by providing energy to the corresponding chakra.
“A good teacher takes a hand, opens the mind and touches the heart.”
The assembly commenced with a beautiful shloka "Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devo Maheshwaraha.Guru Saakshaat ParaBrahma Tasmai Sri Gurave Namaha" followed by the ‘Morning Prayer'. Following this was the news. Children expressed their views on what guru to them is and showed their appreciation and gratitude towards them. It was amazing how we could finish small bits and pieces in those ten minutes. It was a wonderful experience and very fun to work on.
The children spoke confidently and enjoyed taking part. We were so pleased to see a large turnout to witness our hard work and we are extremely happy to say that our assembly was successful. However, the most important lesson we were able to take away from this experience was the lesson of team spirit and coordination.
As now-a-days we are all spending a lot of time indoors, we are not being able to follow a healthy food and fitness regime. The students of class 7D shared some pointers for good health - proper nutrition, pranayam and exercising every day to maintain good health.
The assembly shed light on the topic - is the so-called healthy food really healthy or just a hoax?
This intriguing topic was the need of the hour as right now the whole world is running behind the brightly packaged immunity boosters, herbal teas, superfoods like chia seeds, açai powder, quinoa, gluten free and vegan, baked not fried labels and what not.
But are these foods actually beneficial or nutritious to our body. We’ve brought out the facts, they actually aren’t as healthy as they seem to be and surprisingly, many of them are just as equal in their nutritional value as foods that are already stocked up in our pantry. We should be aware that loud marketing and social media can be a danger to our health. The best solution is very simple! Enjoy a fresh, balanced home cooked meal, something that has kept our grandparents and many generations before them as healthy as can be. Put in a spoon of pure desi ghee, grow a few veggies at home, avoid packaged foods, it’s the best way to go!
