Assembly presentations are a part of PSI’s weekly schedule. We usually don’t mention them in our flashback.

Anaya Bakshi, Sardar Nadir Ahmed Khan, Krish Vankwani, Arooj Wazir, Amna Sohail Abbasi, Rubab Ali, Jahanara Khan and Semira Khan presented an excerpt from the much loved sitcom “Mind Your Language.” When Mr. Brown is trying to teach foreigners how to speak English and asks about basic information, many of them struggle to express themselves and he is left with no option but to leave the class. It was a hilarious skit and everyone enjoyed it immensely.
