Ooooh I’ve so many it’d difficult to chose just one!! I suppose that’s a good thing, isn’t it?! It means there’s happy times to look back on and reflect upon. Happy memories are great and I’m glad that I have so many to enjoy and I hope I will have many more in the future.
The memory I have chosen is a concert I did in second class of primary school. I would have been about eight years at the time and it was a night of pure fun and excitement. The concert had songs from the Disney film A Little Mermaid which my whole class sang together as well as sections from the film we acted out.
I played Flounder the yellow and blue striped fish and my best friend played Sebastian the red crab. We had a line or two each but I remember we both thought it was great! I remember wearing yellow and blue clothes to match my character.
We practised for months on end until we knew both the songs and the dances off by heart. We performed the play that June on the stage in our school for all the parents and teachers. It was so much fun! I remember that wonderful feeling of excitement we had leading up to the big night. There was such a positive and upbeat atmosphere in the school that night and the weeks leading up to the concert. It was lovely to have the support of both my parents and godfather who came to watch the play.
Did you do concerts when you were in school?
