Cheza Nami CAL (Cultural Arts and Leaning) School Assembly Program
Need a great assembly idea for your school?
In today’s economy when our schools are faced with budget cuts, the first programs to go are the arts programs.
Let Cheza Nami artists come to you and expose your students to African culture through dance, music, games, wordplay and instruments with our interactive assemblies!
A Cheza Nami cultural enrichment assembly will not only support your educational curriculum but will also allow students to:
Elementary and Middle school assembly program
Suitable for K - 12 grade students. A Cheza Nami cultural assembly is generally 1 hour long with a minimum of two artists. These assemblies are high energy and require a lot of active participation from both students and teachers. A multipurpose room or a stage is the best suited room for this program, however, we are willing to work with whatever resources are available to your school. You can prepare your students for our visit by requesting our "School Assembly" kit and by visiting our Teacher resources page for class discussion ideas and lesson plans.

What educators say about Cheza Nami's assembly
" That was a fantastic program. All the children were fully engaged. There was never a dull moment. There was movement, there was music. All the kids were excited and I felt that they learnt so much about the culture. All the students from our 6 year-olds all the way to up to our 11 year-olds were fully engaged and had a wonderful time" - Jennifer Loewen. Teacher, Orion School
What the students say
"The assembly was so fun. We danced a lot. I got tired. I turned around and around. I wish we could do it again" - Daniel, 2nd grade
"I would like to go to Africa. I want to hear them play all of the drums and I want to wear the jewelry. The jewelry is so pretty. They wear a lot of necklaces. I would like to wear them. I want to see some animals too. I want to see a lion. I hope I can go to Kenya"
