Tips for an Effective School Assembly
school assemblies have been effective ways to communicate
ideas as simple as school spirit and as complex as bullying.
But not all assemblies are created equal. A successful one
must have five key components. Starting with the most important:
1. Attention Grabbing
In order for students to listen and therefore learn, they
must first be interested. Ask any teacher what the most
difficult part of teaching is and they will tell you it
is grabbing and keeping the student’s attention. For
a company like High Action Bikes, gaining the undivided
attention of students comes naturally. The start of each
assembly is designed to gain interest. And, in most cases,
students are already intrigued after noticing the setup.
2. Engaging Content
Getting their attention is one thing, keeping it is another.
As any parent, guardian, or teacher will tell you, children
of all ages have short attention spans. Luckily, the content
of a High Action Bikes appeals to that adrenaline-filled
spirit in children. They can’t wait to see what happens
3. Time Considerations
It’s important to be mindful of the length of your
school assembly. No matter how interesting or engaging something
is, it is a natural human trait to become satiated after
a while. With that in mind, High Action Bikes school assemblies
are engineered to be exciting and informative from start
to finish. There’s no wasted time. No boring lectures.
The schedule of the assembly is specifically built to entertain
and inform without dragging on.
4. The Message
Let’s face it, no matter how engaged a student becomes,
he or she must also be learning. This is paramount to High
Action Bikes. We have programs on bullying, saying no to
drugs and alcohol, character building, etc… No matter
what the focus, we can build an effective school assembly
to convey the message. Learning is goal number one.
Any teacher knows that repetition is one of the pillars
of the learning process. The schools that bring us back
time and time again have found their students craving the
learning environment we create. They remember the message
because of the way it was presented.
So the next time you plan
a school assembly, remember these five important components.
And remember the High Action Bikes has been creating school
assembly programs for over fifteen years. We use these five
components in every assembly we do.
