How to Host a School Assembly
Gather the Content and Determine the Assembly Theme
The first and most important aspect is to determine the theme and content you are going to cover in the assembly because you are planning in advance what you are going to do in the whole program. The school assembly theme can be different and depending on the time and occasion. for instance, the day you are going to host your school assembly, that day is the technology day, so your content of the assembly can be relevant to that day. You can make a checklist of the things and activities you are going to do during the assembly. You can add the following activities and contents to your checklist:

You can give the students the information in advance and tell them about the theme, topic, and activities they are going to perform on that day.
When your theme is determined, then you can add the above-mentioned activities and contents to your school assembly function.
Note: The pre-mentioned contents are a general workflow for a school assembly. When the theme and contents of an assembly are determined, then you can follow the following workflow to start and end the school assembly brilliantly.

Script to Host a School Assembly
Start With Praising God
Try to make the first good impression at the beginning of the function and the first lines to make a good impression are starting by praising God. You can say the following lines as an illustration.
“To start by the name of God who is merciful and benevolence, ever has existed and ever will for us to glory in anything else, would be in, as there is nothing greater than God, there is no calling greater than God.”
“O merciful God, when nobody could be for me, you were there. When my life was destroyed, you lifted me up. When I was tormented and hurt, you set me free.
No worship and love are greater than the worship of my Lord. His wisdom sings independence to my heart and complete body. So I will praise his holy name. My praise is heartfelt and strong.
I lift up my arms and voice to say: you are love and life. You are truth and justice. You are mercy and grace. And nothing can separate me from your worship and love.
You are my savior, my lord. so I cry out: Praise the Lord! Praise his great and holy name. Allah Almighty! Glory Hallelujah! in Christ, my soul flies free! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
“O Lord, Let me hear you. My soul is weary. nervousness, scared, and doubt Surround me, On each side.
Yet your feet mercy cannot be held back from those that cry out to you, hear my cry.
Let me trust in your mercy. Show me how. Free me. Free me from anxiety and stress. That I may find relaxation and rest in your loving arms. Amen.”
