About 2012 Assemblies

World Class Assemblies are flexible kits of resources that bring Olympic and 2012 stories into primary and secondary schools.

Watch assemblies in action

The assemblies include:

  • a short video clip with a teacher script to introduce the topic
  • discussion ideas
  • an Assembly Question.

Use video clips to explore themes such as achieving your goals and dedication with your pupils.

Working with your partner school

  • Assemblies can be a project that you work on with your twin school.
  • After delivering the assembly discuss the theme together.

The resources aim to stimulate regular student and teacher discussion in the lead up to the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Teachers are encouraged to use the Assemblies in any setting where student and teacher discussion takes place.
