Each morning, the entire student body gathers for Morning Assembly. With no staff involvement, classes take turns leading the assembly each week. Students assume various roles: announcers, reporters, and performers. It’s an opportunity to share their talents in front of their peers, and designed to build confidence, courage, and a sense of community.
Speaking or performing in front of a crowd is taken in stride
Imagine, your Grade 5 child is already keen to speak in front of a crowd. Your Grade 2 child confidently tells you about the poem she read at Morning Assembly. Assemblies also teach students how to be a supportive and accepting audience. The applause of peers, parents, and teachers gives them the courage to be themselves. They look for additional opportunities to be a leader. By the time Fern Hill students graduate, addressing a crowd is a familiar experience that is handled with decorum and finesse.
Join us! Mornings are magic at Fern Hill
Students love Assembly and the tradition gives our school community roots. As the school year progresses, students get to know each other well through introductions at Morning Assembly. Congratulations on a well-executed (or particularly funny) joke, or an interesting fact are shared as students pass in the halls. High fives are common. Accolades abound. Bonds form across different grades, based on shared interests and admiration.
We encourage parents to join us for Morning Assembly. Few moments can top starting a day than watching a preschool class confidently lead an entire school through the daily order of Assembly at Fern Hill. The talents exhibited by our students are always inspirational.
Parents say there is a special feeling at Fern Hill and that it is best felt at Morning Assembly.
Drop in to our Morning Assembly. We know that you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.
