I hate to say it, but school concerts can be just a little… boring. Even when your kid is in it. Seems to me that the teachers push the whole thing just a little bit too far, so it moves from the realm of cute (“oh, they’re playing that well-known song on their recorders!”) over the border into the kingdom of dull (“is this thing finishing soon?”)
Oh well, I suppose it’s primarily for the participants’ benefit, not the spectators.

Oh well, you’ll never want to run for political office as school concerts is a big part of being a backbencher for a marginal seat ; )
Parties should scrap preselections and require that would be candidates:
1. Attend school concerts
2. Tour seniors centres making small-talk with the residents
3. Hand out how to vote cards
4. Being instructed how to vote by their party or faction
5. Donate money to every can-carrying charity collector
6. Do the numbers and stack branches
7. Practice representing social security cheats and/or vexatious whingers
The longest laster wins!
I video the whole thing usually. We never seem to ever watch it, but it gets taped regardless. :)
Last year our school won that Wakakirri thing! thank god they arent doing it this year but nevertheless it was great!
The year before the whole school did a concert the preppies are funny to watch though trying to be grown up but fluffing it!
And about the previous post on your cold house I beg to differ I have the coldest house!! :)
Back in years 4 – 6 I out class had to suffer through performances by at least 2 pairs of girls, who felt a need to show off their latest dance routine in front of the class.
Worse still, you had to applause and back then, my ADD prevented me from napping off (as I do in my of my classes now).
