Interactive assembly inspires students
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.
