WHEN I was a head teacher, I could never have too many assembly books. Collective Worship for Primary Schools , by Helen Jaeger (Barnabas for Schools, GBP7.99), has 50 assemblies to add to the collection.

The list of potential topics for assembly is endless, but it needs to be. A primary-school head teacher could easily be responsible for leading up to 100 assemblies every year. Vicars who complain about the number of the sermons they have to deliver should try being head teachers.

This volume is mercifully simple in construction and easy to use. Heads will particularly appreciate the 'No special preparation is required' ones. There is one unique feature: the assemblies are published in alphabetical order, according to the theme. Hence we begin with anti-bullying and conclude with world feasts. The best title in the book is appropriately in the middle: 'Laughing is good for you.' Staff and students alike will enjoy that one.
