Secondary Assembly: In today’s Assembly, Mr Bishop’s theme was the value of teamwork. He encouraged the students to think about perseverance and the power of individual abilities being used together to strengthen a team effort. He added, however, that an important part of success was to review the efficacy of the team: “If you’re not making the boat go faster as a team, then you need to look a new way of doing it.”
