Assemblies

Assemblies by Students

Thursday is set aside for student assemblies.

All Year Groups have an opportunity to research, plan and deliver assemblies according to their choice. Not only does this help to develop self-confidence & public speaking skills, it also aids in personal development of pupils and helps to broaden their awareness of current affairs and the world around them.

Pupils take pride in putting their points of view forward and overall these assemblies have been hugely successful in promoting a positive culture across the whole school.

After a round is completed, students vote for the best assembly and a prize is awarded to the winners.

Term 4 - Nasheed Singing Assemblies

Throughout term 4, classes sang Nasheeds during assemblies and Year 7 came out as well-deserved winners for singing the touching 'Insha-Allah, you'll find your way' & 'One Big Family' Nasheeds.

The 'Insha-Allah' Nasheed was sung by students from the Al Sadiq & Al Zahra girls school choir performing at the Grenfell memorial service in St Paul's Cathedral.
