Presenting a good assembly will create a rousing response

You are about to start your very first assembly. Row upon row of eyes are staring up at you, colleagues wait expectantly in the wings and your boss looks on, eager to assess your performance. It’s not easy to keep cool. But be reassured: a successful assembly is not beyond your grasp.

You will need a clear sense of purpose. If you are full of bluff and bluster, insecure about what you are going to do or say, the audience will detect this and also feel insecure. Children don’t like that and, one way or another, they will let you know it. Communicate that you are intent on doing a job, and you will command the children’s attention.
