Year 9 Assembly on Heroes
Four members of the Year 9 presented an assembly to the whole school this morning on what it is to be a Hero. They explored fictional heroes like James Bond and Doctor Who as well as sporting heroes such as the England Cricket Team and some premiership footballers and of course the heroes who are fighting in Afghanistan and peacekeeping in other locations throughout the world at the moment.. But they also made the point that there were heroes in the CMA. They let us know that we can all be heroes because heroes are ordinary people who do extra ordinary things and that could apply to all of us. The question they left us to think about was “What have you done today to make yourself proud?” Something perhaps we all should think about at the end of every day.
The assembly was closed with a short reflection and prayer for heroes:
- Do you know any heroes?
- Are you a hero?
- Have you done anything that you feel proud of?
- A small action can make you a hero.
- Think about things you have already done that you now feel make you a hero.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TODAY TO MAKE YOU FEEL PROUD???
Throughout the ages, even to today, you have raised up for us Heroes, as examples of what is best in our humanity. Bless all those whose sacrifice, love and courage have given so much to this world. Protect those Heroes in harm’s way, strengthen those whose heroic contribution perseveres day in and day out, and heal those whose heroism has cost them in mind and body. Grant by your grace, that we may each find ever deeper heroic virtues in ourselves so that we may, following the example of the Hero of Heroes, your Son Jesus Christ, serve others as he served us - every day, in every way. Ame.
Thank you to the Year 9 for a great assembly and we look forward to the Year 10 and 11 assemblies later on in the term.
