Today’s national news headlines in English for school assembly


  1. Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan, who has been in jail since August last in different cases, on Tuesday asked Army chief General Asim Munir to apologise to him for his “illegal” abduction and for backing the ‘London Plan’ and vowed not to cut a deal with the powerful military. “On the morning of May 9, 2023, my illegal abduction from the High Court was part of the London Plan (to topple the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and impose a hybrid system led by the Sharif family on the country), for which General Asim Munir should apologise to me,” Khan said on X.
  2. A missile fired by a drone struck a house in a former stronghold of the Pakistani Taliban in northwestern Pakistan along the Afghan border before dawn Tuesday, killing at least four villagers, including children, police said. The strike happened in South Waziristan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, local police chief Hidayat Ullah said. He said it was not immediately clear who fired the missile and officers were investigating. The Pakistan army evicted Pakistani Taliban insurgents from the region years ago, but they have been regrouping there.
  3. The Georgian parliament on Tuesday approved in the third and final reading a divisive bill that sparked weeks of mass protests, with critics seeing it as a threat to democratic freedoms and the country’s aspirations to join the European Union. The bill requires media, nongovernmental organisations and other nonprofits to register as “pursuing the interests of a foreign power” if they receive more than 20 per cent of their funding from abroad.
  4. Authorities in the French Pacific territory of New Caledonia announced a two-day curfew and banned gatherings on Tuesday after violent unrest on the vast archipelago with decades of tensions between indigenous Kanaks seeking independence and colonisers’ descendants who want to remain part of France.
  5. The Biden administration announced plans to slap new tariffs on Chinese electric vehicles, advanced batteries, solar cells, steel, aluminium and medical equipment — an election-year move that’s likely to increase friction between the world’s two largest economies. The tariffs come in the middle of a heated campaign between President Joe Biden and his Republican predecessor, Donald Trump, in which both candidates are vying to show who’s tougher on China.

  3. Former France centre-back Raphael Varane will leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the season. The 31-year-old Varane joined United in 2021 but has struggled to reproduce the form he showed in a trophy-laden, decade-long spell at Real Madrid before that. Injuries have also played a part, restricting Varane to 93 appearances in his three seasons at United.
  4. National Cricket Academy head and former India great VVS Laxman looks best placed to replace Rahul Dravid as the chief coach of the men’s national team if the latter decides against reapplying for the high-profile job.
  5.  Pakistan has roped in New Zealand’s David Reid, who has been working with Indian Premier League side Chennai Super Kings since 2021, as the national team’s mental and skill conditioning coach.

International Day of Families 2024

Good morning everyone,

As we gather here today, we’re not just celebrating another day at school. Today is special—it’s Family Day! It’s a day dedicated to honouring the importance of family in our lives and acknowledging the love, support, and strength they provide to us.

Think about it for a moment. What comes to mind when you hear the word “family”? For many of us, it’s a warm feeling, a sense of belonging, and a source of endless love and comfort. Our families are our first teachers, our first friends, and our first supporters. They are the ones who shape us, guide us, and stand by us through thick and thin.

But let’s not forget, family isn’t just about blood relations. It’s about the people who love and care for us unconditionally, whether they’re related to us by birth or by choice. It’s about the bonds we create, the memories we share, and the moments we treasure together.

On this Family Day, let’s take a moment to express our gratitude to our families—for their love, their sacrifices, and their unwavering support. Let’s also remember to cherish the time we have with them, for time is a precious gift that we must never take for granted.

As we go about our day, let’s make an effort to strengthen the bonds within our families. Spend quality time together, engage in meaningful conversations, and show appreciation for each other’s presence in our lives. Let’s create memories that will last a lifetime and build a foundation of love and togetherness that will withstand any challenge that comes our way.

To all the families out there, whether you’re near or far, we celebrate you today and every day. Thank you for being our rock, our support, and our home.

Happy Family Day, everyone!

Thank you.
