The School Disco – Thurs 23rd Oct 2014

By | October 23, 2014

D has now started her sixth year at her SN school and this evening was the first time she’d been to a disco there. It’s something that hasn’t been run for many years apparently and the PTA wanted to “test the water”, to see how popular it would be. They recognise that a school disco is not something that many of the pupils would have experienced.

It was great. Each pupil had a carer with them and everyone enjoyed it. Whether it was dancing by themselves/with their carer/rolling around the floor, each happy doing their own thing. Some were in costumes.

D had a groove with me, with one of her friends and with other parents. At one point “Baggy Trousers” came on and there was a conga of happy, laughing children going around the room.

She danced to YMCA and “Living On A Prayer” (amongst others) and she sang away to her favourite song “Firework”.

It ended with “Gangnam Style”.

Judging by the happy faces tonight, I don’t think this will be a one-off, I hope not anyway.

I’m so pleased she enjoyed it, she has been a little bit “I want to go, but I don’t” this week and obviously it was all very out of routine but it all went really well.

Although siblings were allowed, T definitely didn’t want to go, so he didn’t. He’s not a bounce-around-chappie unless it’s to his FIFA game. He had a reasonable day but was a bit miffed as school are starting to put them into class sets and he’s in set 2 for PE. For a little man who likes to excel at everything he does – especially sport – this has been a little tough for him to handle.

Anyway, it’s very nearly half term and for a weary T and D, it will be welcomed.

I hope everyone’s day has gone well Jx
