This assembly is based around the idea of making everyday count at school by attending everyday. It looks at the choices open to students when they finish school and how in reality now statistics show you should plan for 5 careers in your lifetime which will be made easier with good grades. This assembly lasts for approximately 15 minutes and went down well with my School House. Save yourself some time and grab a bargain.
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.

I used this assembly last September with my school assembly and it went down really well with the students really captivated by the story of David Phillips who managed to collected 1.25million air miles by buying puddings (look the story up on google - worth a read). Essentially, the powerpoint which lasts around 15minutes goes through David’s story but then uses it as an analogy for “life miles” which they collect when they attend school, it goes through how to collect more " life miles" and shows you what you can buy with them which is essentially choices like university, dream jobs, travelling the world. Save yourself some time and effort and get this ready to use off the shelf assembly. Thanks for looking Miss Blaker
