Tema-based Delhi Public School International (DPSI) has organized the 2017 edition of its Special Christmas Assembly.
The Assembly, which is an annual ritual, is an occasion where all students and pupils of the school are brought together to learn about the significance of the Christmas festivities.
Headmaster of DPSI, David Raj speaking during the Assembly held on the school’s campus on Wednesday, December 13, said the Christmas Assembly has been instituted by DPSI as another way of educating children on subjects like history and geography.
Pupils and students from the various classes were brought together to learn about Christmas; a Christian celebration which marks the birth of Jesus Christ.
According to him, “This day, we call it a Special Assembly; basically, we have named it as our Christmas Assembly where we bring the significance of these words: Carols, Christmas, and all those things and how important they are.
“And then we encourage children class-wise to sing some carols, just to create a general awareness of different celebrations and functions that we have,” he added.
Mr. Raj explained that “so we try to bring out the importance of this particular day and there are many more things we do in our school to create awareness among the children. Like today, when we talk to them, they know what is a Carol, what they mean by Christmas’ Eve, what Christmas celebration is all about and that’s all.
“The children learn a lot of things through the Assembly and it is one way of educating them about history and geography,” the Headmaster stated.
