Assemblies are held every Friday and provide the opportunity to reflect as a whole school on the learning taking place each week. Assemblies are a very valuable opportunity for students to practice presentation skills, showcase work they are proud of, learn about happenings in other classes, share news about special student clubs (e.g. Student Council), ask questions, make comments or suggestions.  Teachers use this time to informally assess students, they also announce Student of the Week Awards.  Parents are encouraged to attend assemblies.
