5 best tips for an awesome school assembly performance




Hi everyone!

Today I am going to tell you about how to have a great school assembly performance.

School assemblies are an effective way to communicate ideas and induce a learning spirit in children. They are also a great way to incorporate a learning aspect to an entertainment. School assemblies are great for performers because they give you great exposure. You know your audience and their age group before you go into perform and so you get a better chance of preparing and planning your show. For some performers it becomes a bit difficult to perform at school assemblies and today I would like to share my own personal experiences with you and how I make my school assembly performances a great success.

Here are 5 best tips that would help you have a great performance at school assembly.

  1. Get their attention, unless you have full attention of your audience you can not take them along on the fun journey and soon they would lose interest.
  2. Getting their attention is one thing, keeping it is another. As any parent, guardian, or teacher will tell you, children of all ages have short attention spans. The assembly should have content that appeals to that adrenaline-filled spirit in children. If it does, they'll be on the edge of their seats.
  3. Always be mindful of the time. You have limited amount of time, manage it purposefully and wisely. You must let your audience get the most out of it.
  4. Your performance must have a message at the end, no matter how engaged a student becomes, he or she must also be learning. This is paramount to any good assembly program. Make sure at the end children are going to learn something very useful and practical from your performance.
  5. Use TV shows, drama and magic tricks to entertain your audience and keep them focused.
