National news headlines in English for school assembly

  1. Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India for his third consecutive term on Sunday, marking a historic milestone. This achievement is notable as, apart from Jawaharlal Nehru, the inaugural Prime Minister of Independent India, no other Prime Minister has served for a third consecutive term. The swearing-in ceremony witnessed the participation of 72 leaders, including Prime Minister Modi, who took their oaths to become part of the Modi 3.0 ministry. The newly formed Cabinet comprises 30 Cabinet ministers, five Ministers of State with Independent Charge, and 36 Ministers of State.
  2. PM Modi, who commenced his third term on Monday, initiated his tenure by signing the first file for the release of funds under the ‘PM Kisan Nidhi’ scheme. This move authorises the disbursement of the 17th instalment of PM Kisan Nidhi, benefiting approximately 9.3 crore farmers and amounting to around ₹20,000 crore. Following the signing, PM Modi remarked, “Ours is a government fully committed to Kisan Kalyan. It is, therefore, fitting that the first file signed on taking charge is related to farmer welfare. We want to keep working even more for the farmers and the agriculture sector in the coming times.”
  3. Government assistance for the construction of 3 crore rural and urban houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana has been approved by the Union Cabinet, according to officials.
  4. A Swiss brokerage remarked on Monday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “diminished political capital” could pose challenges for the new government in implementing significant reforms. UBS Securities highlighted that the potential growth rate could exceed 7.5 per cent if the government successfully implements tougher reforms, such as those concerning land, farming, divestments, the Uniform Civil Code, and the concept of one nation one election.
  5. Shortly after the conclusion of the Lok Sabha election results, the West Bengal government designated Purnendu Kumar Maji as the fresh district magistrate of Purba Medinipur, replacing Joyoshi Das Gupta, according to an official announcement made on Monday.

School assembly speech


Good morning, everyone!

Today, I want to talk to you about a value that holds immense power in shaping not only our actions but also our character. It’s a value that forms the bedrock of trust, integrity, and respect in every facet of our lives. That value is honesty.

Honesty isn’t just about telling the truth when asked; it’s a way of living. It’s about being transparent in our words, actions, and intentions, even when it’s difficult. Think about a world where honesty didn’t exist. Trust would crumble, relationships would falter, and society would be in disarray. Honesty is the glue that holds our communities together.

Let me share a story with you. Once, I was faced with a situation where telling the truth seemed like the hardest thing to do. I had made a mistake and was afraid of the consequences. But I realised that hiding the truth would only compound the problem. So, I mustered the courage to be honest, and you know what? Despite the initial discomfort, it paved the way for resolution and strengthened the trust others had in me.

Being honest isn’t always easy. It requires courage, integrity, and a commitment to doing what is right, even when it’s inconvenient. Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody is watching. It’s about aligning our actions with our values and principles, regardless of the circumstances.

I urge each one of you to embrace honesty in all aspects of your life. Whether it’s admitting a mistake, speaking up for what’s right, or simply being true to yourself, let honesty be your guiding light. Remember, the path of honesty may not always be the easiest, but it’s undoubtedly the one that leads to fulfilment and respect.

As we go about our day, let’s make a conscious effort to uphold the value of honesty. Let’s strive to be individuals who are known for their integrity and trustworthiness. Together, let’s build a community where honesty reigns supreme, and where our actions speak volumes about who we are and what we stand for.

Thank you.
