We will be holding our second character development assembly of the year.  The character attributes that we will be focussing on this time are kindness, cooperation and social responsibility.  The book that we will be using and sharing with the students is, “Is There Really a Human Race” by Jamie Lee Curtis.

There will be a number of student presentations from the classes of Mlle McManus, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Murdoch.

Parents are asked to talk to their child(ren) about the assembly and ask the following questions as a conversation starter at the dinner table.

  1. What was the life lesson in the book?
  2. What positive change can you make at home/school that reflects the message of the story?
  3. What do you think a ‘human race’ is?

Students will be discussing these questions and more throughout the next few weeks.
