At the current rate of change, the global gender gap will not close for another 100 years. There is still a long way to go. It’s not all doom and gloom however. Today we are surrounded by inspirational women breaking down barriers and giving women the impetus and courage to move forward and become who they want to be. This age-appropriate, thought-provoking assembly looks at the history around International Women’s Day, touches on some of the current prevalent issues and attempts to inspire students with quotes from a range of influential women past and present.

International Day of Happiness 20th March 2021 This assembly is suitable for students in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. A change in attitudes is underway all over the world. People are now recognising that progress should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy. In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a ‘fundamental human goal.’ And while it may seem like a strange time to be evaluating happiness, research has shown that challenging times can actually increase happiness. But how do we define happiness? Is it something we are born with or is it something we can learn? People have agonized over these questions for centuries. A big part of how happy we are depends on our mind-set, the habits we practise, and the way we live each day. By learning the key ingredients of happiness, we can use them to become happier. This age-appropriate, thought-provoking assembly takes a look at the current science around happiness and ask students to consider their own attitudes to it. Learning how to live a happy life is about learning how we work. It is up to us to take control of our own being. This presentation can be used as an assembly or as part of a Happiness project. Comprising of a 30-slide power-point presentation, detailed script, music accompaniment and a prayer for happiness this informative pack will save you hours of preparation time, simply download and go!

International Day for Tolerance Assembly 16th November 2020 This assembly is suitable for students in Key Stages 4 and 5. The word tolerance comes from the Latin tolerantia: to endure.

This age-appropriate assembly raises awareness around respecting the culture, beliefs and traditions of others and understanding the risks posed by intolerance. It suggests ways that we can all become more tolerant and enjoy a more peaceful and meaningful existence. This presentation can be used as an assembly or as an introduction to a tolerance project.

(1)
**Preparing to Sing-Fun Vocal Warm-Ups Suitable for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils. A set of warm-up vocal exercises for young voices** Think of warming up as exercising for your voice. What happens to your voice when you warm up is actually similar to what happens to athletes’ muscles when they stretch and exercise. Warming up loosens those muscles, helps to remove excess mucous and reduces the risk of injury. Regular vocal warm-ups also keep your voice in shape. Just as with other muscles in your body, you need to develop your singing muscles to work efficiently and as they become stronger, your voice will too. Introducing a warm-up routine before you sing will improve the sound quality of your performance. You do not have to have a musical background to deliver these activities. This resource is in two sections. Part one should always be worked through before singing and part two includes a varied selection of ten exercises to choose from when preparing your pupils to sing.
