Grade 11 B Assembly - July 2019
On Wednesday, 10 July, the students of 11B performed their Class Assembly on the theme - “Celebrating Failure’. It was a 15 minute long performance that displayed amazing teamwork as every student of the section participated in the action, without faltering.
The theme unfolded with a skit mimicking a reality show called ‘So You Think You Can’, where participants ranged from the famous NBA player Michael Jordan, the singer Elvis Presley and the stand-up comedian Kevin Hart. All these acts showcased the famous celebrities as initial failures, who never gave up after their first fall, but rose from the ashes like the proverbial phoenix, to reach high and reach beyond.
The humorous dialogues of the excellent voiceovers and narrators were interspersed with a mime, and a song and dance, culminating in KIng Elvis’s hearty goodbye. The play was followed by a quiz on a similar theme of famous personalities, who, in spite of having initial hiccups, rose to success, with grit and determination. The programme ended with the news, but the news was not read. Since the headlines only highlight success stories and not the many trials and failures that lead to these stories, the students signed off with words of motivation to all in the audience to become superstars in their own right.
