Dr Hyde-Dunn takes the final virtual assembly of this term from the top floor of the Library. This week we consider perspective and empathy, we think about the point of view of others and the importance of understanding why theirs may be different to our own. Dr Hyde-Dunn shares a story his father once told him, and a poem by John Godfrey Saxe entitled ‘Blind Men and the Elephant’.

The theme of today’s assembly is time, and in particular, using it wisely. This week, we reflect on the time we have, and how precious it is. Dr Hyde-Dunn poses the question, ‘If not now, when?’, and shares John Betjeman’s poem ‘Dawn’, written whilst at the Dragon, aged 13.

Have you ever had a ‘gut’ feeling? Or ‘felt it in your bones’? This week, Dr Hyde-Dunn looks back into the history of feelings, and we consider the importance of really listening to the responses we receive when we ask the question, ‘How are you?’.

Dragons are known for their sense of adventure, their willingness to take on new challenges, and their appetite for learning. This assembly is not only our last of the Easter Term, but it might be a while before we are all gathered here in Lynam Hall again.
