Day 71 (of 188) concert day
For one of the rare times, we did not do an evening christmas concert.
A bit of an experiment (doing a breakfast themed 9am event) with coffee muffins & more
A bit of a safety experiment (every year we have had an accident – and of course this year is so mild we ended up with rain – but a 5 degree shift and the ice & snow would’ve made a no-evening event look pure genius)
A little of a risk (tweaking traditions after a ‘job action missed month’)
And a lot of fun.
Probably the “calmest” concert day I’ve ever had. Starting the morning with a performance meant many did not have time for their anxiety to brew – and lots left school with smiles on their faces; usually we have high absenteeism the day after an evening concert. I’m very curious to ‘check the numbers’ tomorrow!
Not sure what this means for the future – need to consult with our learning community, but today definitely ended with a very good “feel” to it.
