Rememberance Assembly World War 1

Rememberance Assembly World War 1

The theme of the assembly is to look at kindness in war – how in any situations of war, both sides think they are right. We can look back at World War 1 now and realise that everyone was just fighting for what they believed to be true. Within these horrible situations of war, kindness is still evident. Link back to football matches during the Christmases of 1914 & 1915. The assembly starts with a comparison of then to now. It then looks at some examples from the war in Gallipoli of kindness in a horrible situation. You may want to play the Gallipoli song, ‘ Waltzing Matilda’ as the students enter. Kindness starts with the way we treat each and every human being we meet. If we cannot be kind today, when we have peace and democracy, what does that say about us as human beings?
