Shackleton Centenary Expedition

Primary school assembly plan

We were astonished to come across the Teaching Expertise website recently, suggesting an assembly plan for primary school teachers based on our own story, following in the footsteps of Shackleton.

"Shackleton decided that he wanted to put the safety of his men ahead of his own personal fame and fortune. It was the right decision to make... Shackleton was a great leader: with that came great responsibility for the men who trusted him and followed him."

We couldn't agree more, and our thanks go out to Jane West who compiled the assembly plan - now a new generation of children will learn all about Sir Ernest Shackleton and the difficult decisions that leaders have to make.
