School assembly ideas for all year round

Assemblies in schools can be used to simply relay important messages to students. However, adults will tell you that some of the most memorable parts of school life were the assemblies they attended, whether they learned an important life lesson or just sang to a favourite song with friends. We’ve come up with a few ideas for school assemblies that can be used all year round.

Open-mindedness

Suitable for primary and secondary

Being open minded is being able to appreciate your own cultures, values, and traditions as well as others’. By listening and then even possibly changing your own opinions, you can grow with experience.

Honesty

Suitable for primary and secondary

The story of the boy that cried wolf is the fable that easily communicates the necessity for honesty. The boy lies multiple times about a wolf trying to get at his sheep. After each shout, the villagers come to help and tell him to not lie. When a wolf actually does appear and he shouts for help, the villagers don’t come to help. The morale at the centre of the story is that if you lie too much, you won’t be believed.

Kindness

Suitable for all ages

Pay it forward is the principle of providing an act of kindness to a person that they will then pass on to someone else, thereby creating a system of kindness that can spread across villages, towns, cities, counties and countries.

Respect

Suitable for all ages

This episode of Sesame Street covers the word respect and what it means in everyday life. Teaching respect for others and the environment is an important lesson to teach children. Respecting each other and learning good manners are essentials in everyday life.

Screen Usage and Social Media

Suitable for primary and secondary

In 2014 Gary Turk released a poem on YouTube about screen and social media usage. The poem is as important, if not more important, in the present day as it was then. The poem encourages people to spend time off of screens and go out into the world to truly experience it properly.
