In my daughters’ previous school, they take performances for functions very seriously.
For the two years we were there, the few weeks leading to any big event was never free since at least one of my child was always chosen to participate in school performances.
All the chosen students won’t get much rest and parents-cum-chauffeurs must expect to drive to and fro school many times in a day, expect to have the kids so tired out that they would instantly nap in the car on the drive home.
And for this particular parent-cum-chauffeur, to flat out most of times the moment all the basic things were taken care of once they reach home a.k.a. papa is home, please take over while mama plonk herself down on the bed.
But surprisingly, not here – in our small town with a smaller school.
I was surprised to be told that there won’t be anymore practice for one child until the rehearsal in a few days time and for the other child, she and her group will practice during the rehearsal!
Perhaps the kids here learned/trained faster? Perhaps the teachers and students there were more hardworking?
Whatever it is, I welcome the less strenuous schedule and looking forward to seeing both my kids perform for their new school.
