Every day half an hour at the middle of the day is the designated Assembly Time. This time is gainfully utilized to enhance students understanding of current topics, imparting values and manners -based talks, guest lectures, inter-house competitions, musical sessions etc. Also this time is employed to motivate students by positive reinforcement in the form of praise or rewards awarded in public. The assembly is thus gives every child the opportunity to be in the spotlight and to be celebrated as an individual.
Special Assemblies are conducted on special days and also by each class on a rotation basis. This helps in enhancing students communication skills and also give them more exposure to public speaking and being on stage.
Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.
The Interact club at Pathways is still an infant has many projects in the pipeline and under the visionary guidance of our Director Rotarian Anil Joshi, the Interact club aims at developing humanitarian ethos in our students.
The three houses in the school are named after the brave martyrs from Uttrakhand who gave up their life in the service of the country - Manoj Pande House, Major Somnath Sharma House and Major Rajesh Adhikari. The house system infuses the students with the spirit of camaraderie, competitiveness and cohesion.
Each child initiated into The Shivalik International School is placed in a House and is gradually introduced to the ethos of the institution. Each house has a House Master to whom he/she may turn for assistance at any time. All students from class III and above are placed in the three houses and all extra-curricular activities are channelized through these Houses.
The Houses are engaged in friendly rivalry throughout the year as multiple competitions are held where every student is given a chance to reveal his/her talents. The House System also nurtures the leader ship potential of the students by giving them roles such as House-Captains and Vice-Captains.
