I don't know how the teachers do the yearly concerts...
They must have years and years and years of patience, to pull of the miracle of getting pre-primary children to sit quietly for longer than a hour.
The Toddler also got fed-up with all the daily practice for the concert, and did not want to go to school anymore.
Sigh of relief! They had the last day on Friday last week. The parents had their concert, and the grandparents on the Friday final.
I went to fetch the Toddler earlier, and while I was busy getting her stuff together, I heard the following in her class:
Teacher: "YOU WILL GO SIT DOWN NOW!"
"YOU WILL SIT DOWN IN ANY CHAIR YOU CAN FIND!"
"YOU WILL START EATING YOUR FOOD AND NOT BOTHER ME WHEN I TALK SO SOMEONE!"
I did not see who the poor offending child was, and I felt sorry for him/her.
The very mild-mannered soft-spoken teacher (or so I thought!) had had enough!
I can't blame her, but maybe it is good the end of year is around the corner?
I went away quietly...
