We went to video this year for our opening spirit assembly. This allowed all of the teams, clubs and activities to put the participation pitch to the whole school on video. It also controlled what was said on stage -- often we've had people stray from the script for the benefit of their friends. A very talented student edited the material, added some energy-filled tunes and we had an excellent start to the year. It also helped that we hired a video DJ to come in with three huge screens and a sound system that made everyone listen. A year-end assembly is now being planned to wrap up the year's activities and personalities.
