Last week we looked at CONSEQUENCES in our school assemblies. It all started with a simple game of Jenga between two children.

As the game started to develop, every single move had a possible consequence.

The game developed nicely, until...

How did this happen? Quite simply, the Headteacher didn't think about not looking where he was going whilst talking to the rest of the school! RESULT - game spoilt, two unhappy children, one embarrassed Headteacher and a pile of wooden bricks to re-assemble!

The key message was that all of our actions have a consequence and it is important that we think of others whilst going about our day-to-day activities.

We also looked at the following quotes:

‘In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences.' Robert Green Ingersoll

‘While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.’ Stephen R. Covey

‘Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.’ Alfred A. Montapert
