Since releasing ‘Be Inspired Class Play or Assembly’ this originally as a New Year Script I have ‘tweaked’ it to produce another script so that it can be used any time of the year – not just in January. This made more sense to me as we all need inspiration all of the time – not just once a year; and other times, such as the beginning of the academic year in September are just as important. This could thus be used as a Back to School script, and so there are now three versions of the script:
- Be Inspired New Year Assembly (the original script)
- Be Inspired Assembly
- Back to School Be Inspired Assembly
30 – but this number can easily be adapted up or down.
Around 20 minutes. The performance can be extended by the addition of more jokes and poetry.

(Whole cast ‘dances’ in, seating themselves along two rows of fifteen seats, facing the audience)
Narrator: (To cast) Are we all feeling inspired, that is the question?
Narrator: Now, that’s how I like to start an assembly! Lots of enthusiasm, zest, passion
Child 1: Yes, yes, we get all that! But where are we going with all this good feeling?
Narrator: Well, I’m kind of hoping its going to last (pauses) at least until ..tomorrow?
Child 2: (Shaking head) Ooh, I wouldn’t count on it. I mean, a lot can happen in a day!
Narrator: I know it’s a lot to ask but, well, it’s good to have things to aspire to – however long for! As to how we’re going to achieve such a goal
Child 3: (Interrupting) Oh, that’s simple. We just have to get inspired!
Child 4: We’ve been doing some research and we’ve come up with some pretty inspirational stuff!
Narrator: (Clapping hands) Excellent! Then, take it away!
Child 5: So, it’s all about behaving in the right way every day of our lives.
Narrator: (Aside to audience, incredulously) Every day? Seriously? That would have to be seen to be believed!
Child 6: I know. It seems like a tall order. So we thought we’d start with just one month! Maybe this one! You have to start somewhere!
