A well-prepared school assembly is paramount in getting messages through to teachers, students and parents effectively and with ease. Preparation for a school assembly can be a task no one relishes but once in the swing of things, it will get easier and more interesting.
The first step is to decide what messages are important enough to be incorporated in the school program. Start with national or international current events that need highlighting and use these events to open debates or request opinions from the students and teachers. This can be an exciting way of educating everyone on global events and the impact that these events have on everyday life.
The second step is to investigate what kind of activity you can incorporate into the school program that fits with the theme or message being conveyed. Many organizations provide interesting and fun activities which can be incorporated into the school program which are effective and very educational.
The third step is to plan the school program on paper. This step is vitally important as good timing of the program will ultimately mean delivering a successful, interesting and exciting school assembly. Putting the program on paper will highlight any timing gaps in the school assembly program, as well as identify where the program needs to be expanded or shortened.
The fourth, and last step, is to practice the full program to make sure that all the pieces fit together perfectly. For someone that is new to presenting school assembly programs, it is advisable that the program is reviewed by someone with experience to ensure that the end result is successful.
A well prepared school assembly program will keep the students, teachers and parents engaged and interested in the content and excited about the subject.

Thank you so very much! I too, have heard many, many wonderful comments from students and staff alike. And that is unusual for so many students to "admit" to something being very cool!
