The ideal capacity for the assembly is about 300 students with limited setting. However, if you have a facility that can accommodate more students comfortably, that will be ok because we want to make sure all students are in a position to enjoy the program fully. If you have a small auditorium or MPR, you can order multiple assemblies (30% second assembly). Call for details.
If you have bleachers, students can sit on them, and the overflow can sit on the both sides to form a U-shape with Joe Odhiambo in the middle.
Auditorium setting will work just as well with the program.
We like the students to seat in a U-Shape (open-box) formation with the younger students in front and the older in the back. This allows all students to be closer where the speaker can interact with them equally.
We need a table (8-footer or two small ones for the props), a chair, 3 hula hoops if available. Don't worry if you don't have hula hoops, I normally bring mine too. We also need a base to plug in our wireless transmitters (hand held mic setting will work well with our wireless transmitter). Let us know if you donít have a sound system so that we can improvise.
We normally pick students to help with the assembly. I pick 6 girls and four boys as helpers. You are welcome to pick these students in advance if you prefer to use it as an incentive for the students.
