On Tuesday 8 May BBC World Class will be hosting the World’s Biggest Assembly on the BBC. They want your school to be involved!
For 24 hours schools across the world will take part in this truly global event, giving young people a voice in the build up to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The World’s Biggest Assembly will take place on the BBC website and BBC World Service will broadcast live programmes from schools around the world during the day.
But you don’t have to be on air to take part. BBC World Class will provide teachers’ notes for the assembly. The theme of the day is what matters to young people, and an opportunity for schools everywhere to share their view of the world.
BBC World Class wants young people to discuss and debate their news – it could be anything from a global issue like climate change to something as simple as a teacher who is retiring.
You can involve as many pupils as you like – it could be a class, a year group or the whole school taking part at the same time.
You will be able to interact with the BBC and the world via email and social media, so check in throughout the day to hear what other schools are talking about and get your school’s voice heard.
Pass your assembly on to another school to form a relay. You could join forces with other schools in your area, or send a message to a partner school in a different area via text or skype.
Any school, from anywhere in the world – no matter how big or small – can take part.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with World’s Biggest Assembly in the subject header to tell them what you are planning so they can share your plans with other schools ahead of the big day.
