As quoted by her, The Singing Assembly was introduced in the TCV School in the year 2017 keeping in mind the children’s love for music and as a method to help children learn English in an enjoyable way. She also insist on choosing songs that’s lyrics and theme ties in with secular ethical education.  While her stay in the school, she has taught a song titled “Kindness” by Jennifer Russell to whole junior students and of course with the help of all the English teachers. The students beautifully sang that song during the morning assembly. The theme of the song was being kind to the earth and the animals.
