Guardians of the Galaxy Immersion Assembly

On the first day back of each term our teachers always take part in immersion assembly. This could be in the form of a movie, play, or just by dressing up. The purpose of immersion assembly is to introduce the school wide theme for the term in an interesting way. It is always a way to 'hook' students into learning for the term and gives others an idea of what each team will be focusing on.

Our immersion assemblies are always interesting and entertaining. However this particular assembly for our theme 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was absolutely AWESOME! Here are some highlights.
