My Thoughts On... School

These are my thoughts. Know one else's. My brain. Unless I do nick ideas from someone else, although I don't usually do that. I hate, people copying work at school. Thinking of school, there are lots of things I could moan about. Scary dinner ladies, eccentric teachers and magical maths? I don't think so.


6. Drama


Okay, don't get me wrong, I enjoy drama, but there are lots of... odd things that go on.

For example the teachers. They are the craziest teachers in the school, with their wide eyes and exaggerated hand gestures. It's a bit odd. Plus, at the start of every lesson, we play 'Drama games.' Some are fun, some are terrible! For example, there is 'Go Bananas.' You shout 'Go Banana's,  B-A-N-A-N-A-S!' whilst dancing. When you are finished, the class copies. Why? That is the most random thing in the world! 

Don't get me started on school plays. They are death traps, like signing a contract and then WHAM! You don't know what's hit you.

Year 7. The school play was James and the Giant Peach. My teacher asked: Are you auditioning?' I said: 'I don't know.' (Means, no.) Teacher: Oh but you must! You really should! Blah, blah, blah. I thought, the rehearsals won't be that bad, and if I ask for an early audition slot (which I did) I would be fine. What also annoyed me, was that my teacher asked me persuade other people to come! The cheek! Talk about 'Come if you like, but I really want these people.'

She forgot about my slot, it was mayhem, badly organised and I left gone five. I was not happy.

When I landed the part of a Cloud Man I was all but thrilled, and after seeing the rehearsal times I was shocked. If I had gone through with it, I would at times be at school five hours on Saturday and Sunday or three hours after school. No, I say, NO!

I emailed saying I wanted to drop out, and surprisingly my teacher didn't mention it. Then when the time came for the production to open it's curtains, she turned on the barbecue, with us as kebabs.

My teacher asked the whole class: 'Who is not coming to see the production?' We raised our hands, and for some reason, my teacher asked why. It seems to be a thing with all drama teachers, and then it turned to GCSE, saying that we should be going to watch all school plays. Why? What is the reason?

My drama teacher hinted again this year, but not as much as last year.

Once we had a cover teacher who made us all hold hands, run into the centre of the room and shout 'Sunshine!' Why? We go to a boy's school! Know one wants to do that!

I do enjoy drama lessons, although the schemes are sometimes weird, like we studied 'A Christmas Carol' in October, and a lecture about the school production turned into kissing girls and flings. 

Drama is fun, but sometimes the schemes and teachers can be... odd.
