Today Year 5C had the honour to open the new season of Primary School Assemblies this week, with the children presenting a timeline of the Human’s Rights given the fact this is what they studied in class in the last week.
Every bit of the assembly was their concept and they put a lot of effort to make it work. Through short plays, speeches, and crafts that children prepared carefully in advance, they showed how Cyrus the Great set the slaves free in 153BC, how King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, and how Mahatma Gandhi fought for Human Rights in India. In Europe, during the World War II, Human Rights were almost extinguished because of Adolf Hitler. The assembly ended with Eleanor Roosevelt creating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
All in all, it was a great experience that made our students happy, excited, but also gave them a bit of stage fright. Thank you to all the parents who came along to watch their fantastic performance.
