John Donne School assembly ETTDT


Use the launch assembly to let the school know what’s coming.

Why not kick-off the programme in your schools with an assembly? We have an assembly, with PowerPoint and video created by an award-winning headteacher and food education specialist Dr Jason O’Rourke PHD of Washingborough Academy, Lincolnshire.

Below you can download our assembly guide and PowerPoint both of which you can adapt to suit your plans. There is also a downloadable version of the TV advert the kids will see in the build up to the schools’ programme. Finally, there is a fun “rally cry” video from our crazy school chef. All assets are also available in Welsh or bilingually. Though please note the videos are subtitled in Welsh.

Starts 20 February – Ends 31 March
