Risks (9CW Tutor Assembly)
- 9CW presented an assembly on risk taking. The discussion led to reflecting on risks taken earlier in life to why humans are programmed to take risks. This led to a discussion on addictive behaviours and gambling. There were also many examples on how taking risks has pushed mankind forward and improved societies as a whole over time. The conclusion was that risks must be taken for a full and rewarding life but consequences must be considered beforehand to minimize negative outcomes.

Don’t Ignore Others (Mr Cumberland)
- Next time you see or hear someone has a problem and you think it does not concern you, think again. If one person has a problem we can all act together or individually to help solve the problem. There is an Eastern belief called Karma, which in a nutshell is do good things and good things will happen to you. Think about it for a moment, if no one did anything good, nothing good would be done to you, if we all do good things, then some of those random acts of kindness should be coming your way. A kind act is like throwing a stone into a pond, the effects like ripples spread out far and wide having a far greater effect than you can and do imagine.

Regrets (9SO Tutor Assembly)
- 9SO's assembly was on regrets and the journey of our life…pushing very hard every day to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health, time with our family and what we should be doing is appreciating the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love. One day we will all look back and realise that we don't really need that much. Unfortunately, we cannot turn back the hands of time for what we have missed. It was for this reason that we decided to talk about regrets. The information gathered was from different surveys, class discussions, or informative talks with parents and carers. We wanted to know what people most regret in life…if anything at all.
