Monday morning assemblies have a sense of sparkle about them these days.  On a cold winter morning it could be a moment to set our pupils up for the week.  Inspiring models of behaviour are the watchwords here and the other week our pupil Nashm prepared a poem to read to the assembled school.  It was recited with some verve and received very warmly by those present. Some of the lines in the poem were very pertinent to the theme of the assembly – stepping out of your comfort zone and learning from when things go wrong:

“Just do your best not to fall
But if you fall, you should get right back up, and stand tall
And you should be proud that you got through it all”
