Assembly Procedure

Table of Contents
  • Each class has one assembly per year as rostered and published on the website. Teachers nominate their assembly time early in week 1 for the year. They are split into junior (1-3) and senior (4-6) assemblies. The newsletter and term planner will indicate the dates for each class and any changes to times. Throughout the year there may be some special assemblies e.g. music program or Book Week.
  • Assemblies occur on Friday mornings at 8.50am in the undercover area. Parents are invited to attend.
  • Each assembly has honour certificates for students. Names are read out by the student councillors and the Deputies and Principal present the certificates.  By Tuesday before the assembly, classroom teachers contact parents to notify them that their child is receiving a certificate and give the certificates to the school office for recording on SIS and signing by the Principal.
  • Teachers should map out their merit awards as per the assembly schedule so that they are able to hand out awards to all students by the last normal assembly (no merit awards at IMMS assemblies please)
  • An assembly format is available in the Connect Library/Teams along with a PowerPoint for display
  • Four mobile pin-up boards are available for assembly use. They are stored in the Maths Room. (between Rooms 4 and 5).
  • Students bring their mats to sit on.
  • To rehearse assembly items, please liaise with our PE Specialist/s about availability of the undercover area.
