Am just curious, as I could end up without a Year 9-10 class next year, and feel like a bit of a failure, as I don't have enough students for Music. However there are only 24 pupils in Year 8, and I'm competing with four other subjects. One of the subjects is drama.. a lot of the students would have chosen music AND drama, however they are in the same stream, and my 'musical' students have elected to study drama this year with their non-musical friends I had the same problem last year, and my year 9 students made it clear that they would study music with me this year, and take drama next year. I'm also competing with sport, in a very sporty school, and a new very popular computer technology course Feel as if my boss thinks that students don't enjoy music, but as one of my students said today.. "They put all the best subjects in one stream! Just curious as to how your elective systems work, how many subjects are in your stream, and what percentage of your students choose music? Thanks for any replies!
