Assemblies form an integral part of our daily routine. We firmly believe that Assemblies play an important role in building community across grades. Every assembly is based on a topic that is relevant to our commitment to the community and society as a responsible and ethical social human being. Led by students, every morning assembly sets the tone for the day, highlights the exciting events happening at the School and celebrates student birthdays and achievements. Moreover, Assemblies are enhanced by Sanskrit shlokas which transmits the traditional values to our children.
Narake’s Panhala Public School & Jr. College strongly believes in the dictum, ‘Empowering the Youth for the Future’. We need to empower the youth and give them a sense of responsibility to be able to take on leading roles in the future in service to the society and nation at large. Keeping this in mind, the Student’s Council is formed by selecting the students from each class who go on to play leading roles in the Student Council. The Council consist of The Head Boy, Head Girl, Captain, Four House Captains & the Monitors of each class. The student council plays an active role in the smooth functioning of the school. As Mother Teresa would say, “All of us cannot do great things, but we all can do small things with great love”. The student council contributes greatly towards maintaining the Discipline of the school, actively participates in organizing the school functions and coordinates as a link between the teachers and the students.
Involving the students into extracurricular activities of their interest is a way of grooming the students socially, intellectually, and creates a joyful learning atmosphere at Narake’s Panhala Public School. Students find solace in being a part of various clubs like Bird watching Club, Music Club, Sports Club etc. Panhala is blessed by scenic nature beauty and its lush green environment is apt for Nature Club like the Bird Watching Club. During the weekends, students of Bird watching club gear up with their binoculars, put on their trekking pants and along with their teacher-in-charge venture out in the natural surrounding to catch a glimpse of their favourite birds in the locality. This creates a sense of responsibility among the students who grow up to care and conserve their nature.
