We are delighted to share our resources for schools

Great Big Live Assemblies

For the first time, in June 2023, we gathered schools together via a live online broadcast that was inspirational, informative and interactive. The 20-minute Great Big Live Assembly will help children see for themselves what life is like for many children around the world. As well as discovering stories and statistics, children in schools around the UK were able to connect with their counterparts in a refugee camp. Our aim is for children across the UK to recognise and celebrate the contribution refugees make to life in the UK and demonstrate some of the ways we can all stand with refugees.

On Tuesday, October 10th at 9:05am, we hosted a live broadcast for schools all across the country. This fast-paced, age-appropriate Great Big Live Assembly featured:

  • inspirational input from black personalities and influencers
  • focus on this year’s Black History Month theme: “Celebrate Our Sisters”
  • opportunities for students to be inspired by black women of influence around the world
  • opportunity to ask questions of the panellists and learn about practical things they can do to help make a difference in their communities.

This month, to celebrate World Children’s Day, we will be hosting a live broadcast for schools all across the country. This fast-paced Great Big Live Assembly will look at:

  • why it is important for children to raise their voices on issues that matter to them and how they can do that 
  • what life is like for young people in other countries around the world 
  • the benefits of global citizenship learning. 

It will also feature a live link with children in Ghana and Bangladesh. These inspiring young people recently addressed the United Nations General Assembly and spoke to world leaders about the opportunities and challenges facing their countries and now they are coming to speak to us.
