All-school Assemblies, held every Friday, are an opportunity for the St. Timothy’s community to gather for cultural, informational, and entertainment events. They are a crucial part of community development, especially when guest speakers are invited to share their stories. Themes explored by our visiting speakers include Leadership, Ethics and Values; World Citizenship and Girls’ Health and Wellness.
