Troopers – Mon 8th Dec 2014

By | December 8, 2014

One of the highlights of the run up to Christmas is seeing D performing with her class in front of parents. All children with disabilities, physical or otherwise. Children who are attending their SN school because mainstream would be too challenging.

One of the lines they sang today was “you are all little stars” and they were, all of them.

They had had rehearsal after rehearsal, teachers and TAs sitting with them and in front of them, singing along and signing too.

There were nerves understandably, children who forgot their words, children who didn’t want to stand when it was time to. It was okay, every single adult and carer knew how much it was taking to perform, to join in.

I can’t share photos of the children, but here you can see the hat D wore, each member of her class made one:


And the Christmas top, it has sequins and a bunny on. Could there be a more appropriate Christmas top for D?


She did us so proud, she had the opening song to sing and 20 minutes later was visibly uncomfortable, coughing away through “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”, but she kept going, singing away. That cough! I think we’re all nearing the tail end now, which is a relief (understatement) and hopefully she’s be cough-free for her singing next week.

But nothing can take away the joy in that room today, it was lovely.

Glitter was “on top of the world” this morning too!
