I have been given permission to have a concert (in our 3rd year as academy with no concerts). I am allowed 1 hour from 6-7pm. I also put up a performance very week for the 4 assemblies. These are great opportunities fro me to record coursework. The head has only seen my Xmas assembly music and not the daily stuff. So here is the crunch: Apparently, some of my assemby acts are not of the quality expected for a public performance!!!!!! So I ask which ones, no-one can tell me of course. I have never received anythign other than praise. I keep asking and get my colleague, an expert in finding out the inside scoop, to be detective cause no-one can give me a staight answer. I am offended. You, my colleagues, know how hard kids find it to perform in front of the school and that, no matter how much they have practised and rehearsed with you, anything can happen. Also, it's about personal development. These kids who choose a performance based subject need to experience performing, they are scared and know this is about learning to manage your fear. What does SLT expect and is it me or are there very few SLT members from a creative background? They jsut have no idea.
