No Assembly Plans – Assembly Nightmare
You are sitting in your office and the school secretary phones you. “They are waiting for you in assembly Headteacher”. You think there must be some mistake. It is not your turn on the assembly rota.
You quickly go to the hall and sure enough several hundred students and their teachers are all waiting patiently for your missive.
How could this be? You have not prepared anything. It is not in your assembly plans.
What should you do now? What am I going to say to everyone? You start to sweat. Ideas vanish from your brain. Your heart starts to pound.
Suddenly there is a loud sound. Your bedside alarm goes off. Getting out of bed, still in a cold sweat, you resolve to have a backup plan should this nightmare ever become reality.
Backup assembly plans would be to have a standard emergency assembly on your TeacherStick which you always keep on your keyring. You may never need it, but like car insurance, it stops you waking up in a cold sweat.
