When Theo was asked to be a Stagecoach blogging ambassador last year, one of the things I was concerned about was that we may find ourselves surrounded by competitive showbiz parents. In fact six months down the line I’m surprised but I’ve not met any people who fit the stereotype of stage school parents.
In fact if anything I rather wish I’d had a chance to get to know the adults a little better, we all tend to run in and out at drop off and collection time and never get a chance to exchange more than a smile or a brief hello. It would be good to find some parents who are local to us so perhaps we could do some lift sharing. When Jim is away at weekends, I have to do the drop off during Alice’s lunchtime sleep which means I’ve had to call in a few favours from friends and neighbours to get them to sit in the house while I nip up the road.
But anyway, having not met many of the parents I was quite curious to talk to some of them on camera about their experience. I also had a chance to speak with one of the young teachers who started out as a pupil and confessed to me that she “still needs to work on her confidence”. When you see her on camera I think you’ll agree she is the model of modest confidence and a great advert for the school!
