Appendix B: Changing Seasons

A school year has a rhythm of shifting seasons, and the messages of assemblies follow this rhythm. The wisdom of winter is madness in May, and so the things students need to hear in September are not the same as they are told in April, and so by organising the assemblies by months we can pick out similarities in the start of school messages, the season of Remembrance, the assemblies that fit into Resilience for a Better Tomorrow, exam preparation, and the assemblies of goodbye that come at the end of the year.
