The Importance of Our
Morning School Ritual

Each school day, 425 students gather with their teachers in the Siddhartha School courtyard for the morning assembly. Summoned by the student drumming, they form orderly lines with fellow classmates. The day starts with announcements, calisthenics, meditation, and often a short Buddhist lesson. The simple routine provides stability

and builds feelings of school community. It’s one of the many things that make Siddhartha School so unique! Recently, we asked students and teachers what the morning assembly means to them.

Hello and Julay,

For me, morning assembly is important because the best thing about it is that we get a blissful opportunity to know more about Buddhism on Fridays and Saturdays, which really enlightens my mind to start my day. 🙂 It is also important from the other side that we came to know what’s happening in the entire world through news read by our seniors!

Hello Dear Supporters,

I feel so attached to Siddhartha School. I am in fact the most senior teacher as per my service. It’s been more than 25 years I have been teaching kindergarten kids. Of course, morning assembly is really important to me, not just me, but to the entire school as a family. Discipline is really important, which we observe. A child can learn beyond academics like moral talks, religious talks which we usually conduct on Fridays and Saturdays.

Also, for me, a child can get encouragement when he/she conducts presentations individually in front of the whole school, which can help him/her in the future. Also, a child can get physical and mental strength as we let them do light exercises and meditation. Also sometimes we are able to invite some experts to give motivational talks too. So that’s why morning assembly is important for me.
