This is a question School Assemblies

Our school assemblies were often presided over by the local vicar, who once warned us of the dreadful dangers of mixing with "Rods and Mockers". One of the cool teachers laughed. Tell us about mad headteachers and assemblies gone wrong.

Inspired by the mighty @Rhodri on Twitter

Christmas tidings.
Every christmas my little primary school would do a play and sing carols to the adoring/bored parents on their wee wooden seats. A few years in and our head decided this was ENOUGH. We had to have EXTRA assemblies until we could SING IT RIGHT. This being the head teacher who famously stood up at an easter event and told us all, including the parents, that our singing was abysmal and we should be ashamed.

So there we gathered to practice our song over and over and over until she stopped being mental. It took us a wee bit but we got it in the end. Sort of...

"We wi- you a merry chri-ma-! We wi- you a merry chri-ma-! We wi- you a merry chri-ma-! And a happy new yeeeear."

Satisfied, the night drew near. We were full of christmas joy and good spirits, and the energy that comes from showing off to a room full of adults. We could do this, damn it!! We drew breath...

"Whee whish you a mherry chrisssssmasssss! Whee whish you a mherry chrisssssmasssss! Whee whish you a mherry chrisssssmasssss! AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!"

We hissed and bellowed triumphantly to our applauding parents and our fuming head.

I saw her yeeeears later, long after I'd left and she'd retired. She's just this lovely little old lady now! How does that work??

Careful now, with a story like this you might get an aspie fit thrown your way.

And did Santa bring you your two front teeth?
