In­ter­ac­tive assem­bly in­spires stu­dents

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

STU­DENTS at Cannonvale State High School were left in stitches af­ter a sur­prise visit by in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed act, The Ned Show, dur­ing their school assem­bly last Wed­nes­day.

Pre­sented through sto­ry­telling, hu­mour, magic tricks, vi­su­als and au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion, The Ned Show is a high en­ergy, mo­ti­va­tional assem­bly per­for­mance fea­tur­ing the cartoon char­ac­ter Ned.

As The Ned Show’s An­drew Booth took cen­tre stage with his trusty yoyo, stu­dents of all ages were laugh­ing hys­ter­i­cally at his bizarre sto­ries and re-en­act­ments of Ned’s ad­ven­tures while on his way to Cannonvale State School.

“The show is de­signed to mo­ti­vate, en­cour­age and in­spire stu­dents into be­com­ing cham­pi­ons at school and in life.” The Ned for­mula teaches chil­dren three crit­i­cal skills: to never give up (fo­cus and per­sis­tence), en­cour- age oth­ers (kind­ness and shared learn­ing) and do your best (dili­gence and ex­cel­lence).

Mr Booth said th­ese three sim­ple prin­ci­ples can make a pro­found dif­fer­ence in ev­ery stu­dent, as well as im­prove the cul­ture of an en­tire school.

“I think it’s im­por­tant for some­one to come in from out­side the school com­mu­nity to help re­in­force how to be a good per­son and over­come neg­a­tiv­ity,” he said.

Cannonvale State School prin­ci­pal An­gela Kelly said The Ned Show was in­cred­i­bly en­ter­tain­ing and the mes­sage was very pow­er­ful.

BUILD­ING CON­FI­DENCE: Year 5 stu­dent Car­liejean Ren­ton was given a yo-yo prize by The Ned Show’s An­drew Booth.
