I presented this assembly to my house and it lasted about 15 minutes once everyone had come in and sat down. It starts with a video link to base jumpers which worked really well at keeping all the students quiet as they walked in. It also sets up nicely for learning to fail as these guys clearly can't fail, but in school failure is all part of learning and so students should embrace failure. The assembly then goes through the endeavors of famous people who have dealt with failure numerous times and moved on from these set backs and learnt from them successfully. It finishes by suggesting a "a fail Friday" where across the school students and teachers alike are encouraged to take risks in lessons and step outside if their comfort zones. Save yourself some time planning and grab yourself a bargain.
