Whole School Assembly - Individual Liberty

In today's assembly, we talked about British Values. Recently, many families travelled to Glasgow for an event that claimed to channel the magic of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. However the the chocolate fountains, performances by Oompa Loompas and interactive experiences turned out to be rows of empty tables and walls of black fabric separating almost empty spaces. We talked about why the people who went may have been disappointed, and how others involved were impacted too. There are times when we will be excited and will be looking forward to something, but it may not be quite what we wanted or hoped it would be. We discussed that learning how to deal with disappointment is important and that our choices are a part of our Individual Liberty.
