"The ‘STAND UP FOR SHAKESPEARE‘
NATIONAL SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES WEEK
26 – 30 January 2009
The Royal Shakespeare Company invites every Primary and Secondary school across the country to take part in a national Stand up for Shakespeare Assemblies Week from 26 - 30 January 2009 to explore and debate the importance of Shakespeare.
Schools will be able to download specially created assembly toolkits from the RSC’s Stand up for Shakespeare website www.rsc.org.uk/standupforshakespeare which tackle the questions ‘What Shakespeare Has Done for Us’ and ask ‘Why Do We Still Study Shakespeare?’ and will receive a short film of young people enjoying Shakespeare at schools with interviews and messages of support from RSC actors including Judi Dench, Patrick Stewart, Tamsin Greig, Michelle Gomez and David Tennant."
