Presidency School

Presidency Houses & Assembly

Learners are uniformly divided among these houses with the principal objective of inculcating in them a sense of collective responsibility, solidarity, camaraderie, aesthetic appreciation, novelty and leadership. Each is guided by a House Mistress and headed by Captains and Vice captains who steer their respective houses through the myriad activities of the school.

The Houses in the School – Tagore, Pele, Da Vinci and Curie – are named after four eminent personalities whose varied contributions to the world have put them on a high pedestal to be revered by all. These sparkling stars have etched their names in golden letters in the arenas of Literature, Sports, Arts and Science.

Scholastic and co scholastic competitions are conducted regularly under the House System and it is sheer joy to watch the zest with which participants vie to reach the zenith.

“Ore nabin, ore amaar kancha, ore shobujh, ore abhujh, aadh marader ga mere tui bancha”
“Every kid around the world who plays soccer wants to be Pele. I have a great responsibility to show them not just how to be like a soccer player, but how to be like a man”
Da Vinci
“Obstacles cannot crush me; every obstacle yields to stern resolve.”
“We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”


Giving your child an opportunity to share knowledge and display talent

Assemblies enrich the curriculum and make the educational process relevant and interesting. Apart from being used as a platform for value education, they also provide a perfect opportunity for students to eliminate stage fear and improve their presentation skills.

Assemblies for Grades I to IX are conducted on a schedule. Each class gets to perform one theme-based assembly. In these assemblies, students portray their message through skits, talk shows, musical concerts, amazing facts, quizzes, thoughts for the day etc. These thematic assemblies help young students grow physically, mentally and spiritually, sensitizing to the challenges of everyday life.

Meticulous planned thematic assemblies are generally chalked out at the beginning of the academic calendar.
