UPDATED: NEW LYRIC VIDEOS INCLUDED & UPDATED CONTENT FOR COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2022 & OLYMPICS 2024
DESCRIPTION: Get your leavers' assembly off to a flying start with the fabulous 'Racing On'. You get 5 great songs with vocal tracks, backing tracks & lyric videos (videos only available in download version). Plus FIVE ready-to-use leavers' assemblies (2 PowerPoint assemblies & 3 text assemblies). All assemblies include an optional sporting twist and contain ideas, activities, stories / playscripts, readings, lessons and optional prayers. With added extras like PowerPoint song words, sheet music and songsheets, this is a truly superb, easy-to-use leavers' assembly pack with everything you could possibly need. Please click the 'Song Samples' tab to hear samples from every track. Please click the 'Assembly Details' tab for script samples and further information.
THEME: Each of the included five assemblies has a slightly different theme. Please click on the 'Assembly Details' tab for more information.
2022 UPDATE: The download version has had a substantial update. Besides all new lyric videos, all assembly content has been updated, all PowerPoints have been updated / reformatted. All audio tracks have been remastered. All other content has been updated as well. PLEASE NOTE - the CD version still contains the old version of this publication as it is shortly due to be phased out when we move to our new streaming site within the next few months.
IS IT RELIGIOUS? None of the songs have religious references. A few of the included assembly scripts do have religious references as part of their closing summaries, and all assemblies contain an optional closing prayer, but you can easily use the included editable versions to remove all these sections if necessary. Therefore, we believe that there is something here to suit everyone.
"I heartily recommend this leavers pack." Mrs Prior - Teacher

RACING ON Leavers' Assembly - SONG SAMPLES

ASSEMBLY SAMPLES: Please click on the links below to download samples.
This assembly is designed to be delivered by an adult towards the pupils. The introduction gets the children thinking about the many types of sports, games and races that there are in the world, culminating in the thought that if you want to excel in any one of them then you need to develop perseverance. To explain what perseverance means, the assembly then moves on to a story... a wacky tale of two twin brothers who have a skateboard race from London to Paris! Finally, the assembly is summed up with optional readings from the bible and a prayer, encouraging the children to succeed in life through perseverance.
This leavers assembly is identical to the one above, but it has been reformatted so that it can be presented / acted by as many children as you want.
This leavers assembly has been designed to be delivered by a class of children, but it can also easily be presented by one teacher / headteacher / adult on his / her own. The introduction asks the children to think about their sporting heroes. It then moves on to a discussion of the meaning of the word hero and talks about the way the word is sometimes misused when it's applied to someone just because they're rich or famous. Next, in order to appreciate what a true hero really is, two real life stories are told of the selfless acts of two people who bravely save the lives of others. Finally, the summary asks the pupils to think about who their own personal real-life heroes should be: i.e. family, friends, teachers, important community members, etc... It encourages the children to think about aspiring to be like these people instead of simply aspiring to be like the rich and famous. It then closes with an optional prayer.
TIMING: We are often asked about the length of our assembly presentations and the truth is that due to the included editable scripts, they're VERY flexible. If you stick exactly to the scripts, then the PowerPoint assemblies will take around 20-25 mins, assemblies 1A and 1B will probably take 30-40 mins, and assembly 2 will probably take around 20 mins. However, with the editable scripts you can very easily shorten or lengthen these times in any way you want.
PARTS: A playscript is included in assembly 1B. This script has acting parts for just 2 children with small walk on parts for a number of others and a very large number of narrators parts. The remainder of the assembly scripts have further parts which can be read out by dozens more children.
REHEARSAL TIME: We believe it's possible to teach a simple version of one of these assembly performances to a group of children in just a few hours. Please note this is not a guarantee. Please listen to the songs and view the material before deciding how much rehearsal time your pupils will require.

SCHOOL INVOICE ORDERS: Our school invoicing system is NOT normally available for use by non-UK customers. However, in exceptional circumstances (e.g. if your school's payment procedures prohibit the use of a credit card), then we will provide goods for overseas schools, with a 30 day credit invoice, providing your establishment passes our security checks. There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency. Please email us at email@example.com if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.
UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): Physical orders are usually dispatched via standard first class post within 24 hours of the order being received (except on weekends / public holidays). Therefore, under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However, at peak times of the year (October to December) please allow a little longer for your order to arrive.
UK NEXT DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via 'guaranteed next day delivery' is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473. However, during times of heavy demand, we reserve the right to withdraw this service without notice. Orders via 'guaranteed next day delivery' must be placed before 2PM.
OVERSEAS (Non-UK) DELIVERY
OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£10.99) : Physical orders are usually dispatched via a 'Tracked & Signed' delivery service, within 24 hours of the order being received (except on weekends / public holidays).
Deliveries will usually take 5-12 days to reach you, depending on your location. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that at peak times of the year (November / December), or if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, then your order may take 2 to 4 weeks to reach you. For this reason we highly recommend that overseas customers consider buying downloadable products rather than physical products, which is always an instant way of receiving your purchase. Or, combine the two options... purchase the download version to have now, plus the low price 'Extra CD' option to slowly make it's way to you.
EXPRESS OVERSEAS DELIVERY (£23.99): Alternatively, if you require your physical goods as urgently as possible, then we do have an express overseas delivery option available, which can get the goods to you in approximately 2-4 days (depending on your location). To purchase this express service, please visit the following page to add the £15.00 expedited delivery option, which is in addition to the standard £10.99 overseas delivery costs (Total express overseas delivery costs therefore becomes £15.00 + £10.99 = £25.99) https://www.learn2soar.co.uk/expedited
BFPO: British Forces Personnel based Overseas are counted as UK customers and can ignore the above overseas delivery information as long as a "BFPO" address is used.
