What a nightmare shock

lilyloo Fri 11-Jul-08 13:22:17

Where has all this come from ?

In our local paper some kids arrived to their prom in a helicopter shock What is going on.

Although they do graduations at nursery now hmm

My ds's schol organised one of these. The parents had to pay for tuxedo's for the evening aswell. I'm pleased ds wasn't in year 6. They also had to 'donate' money to the school (it's private).

Insh'allah, this has not yet made its appearance at the schools my dc have been to.

Terrible idea. What's wrong with a bog-standard school disco in the hall?

RubyRioja Fri 11-Jul-08 13:22:50

need this to go m?IMSfp=TL0806271419a7750

Must admit, my dd would love it, but I don't really approve.

Mercy Fri 11-Jul-08 13:23:08

Sounds horrible. And far too expensive.

OUr Yr 6 leavers do a concert for parents and teachers, with a party afterwards (food and drink) That's it.

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 11-Jul-08 13:24:12

we're having a Leavers Assembly which is simple and always very moving - that is quite enough.

Marina Fri 11-Jul-08 13:24:48

We have a quick bop in the school hall and a tea party where they show their parents the film of their leavers' trip to France

Marina Fri 11-Jul-08 13:26:22

Ds is going to a prom aged nine...the Dr Who Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. That's the only sort of prom countenanced in our house...
Limos and tuxes FFS, how creepy is that

plumandolive Fri 11-Jul-08 13:26:29

Oh I think that's so awful, gross..the whole prom thing leaves me cold anyway...when did it all start for seconadary ? We didn't have them.. it's imported from US isn't it?

Country Club for 11 year olds ffs..

Katisha Fri 11-Jul-08 13:27:36

Hope to see you there Marina!

lilyloo Fri 11-Jul-08 13:38:56

Exactly we never had a prom either , were happy with school disco.
Our local paper does 12 sheet spread of school proms with the big dresses , tux , limos, helicopters etc. It's way ott !

Marina Fri 11-Jul-08 13:40:20

We will be wearing giant Union Jack top hats and bobbing up and down like twits at the front Katisha (not really)

Tortington Fri 11-Jul-08 13:40:22

When did proms become the norm in UK schools?

LynetteScavo Fri 11-Jul-08 13:42:41

LOL thank heavens my DS would refuse to go.

In my day it was a disco with a drink of panda pop and a packet of crisps! grin

A prom for 11 year olds?


StellaDallas Fri 11-Jul-08 13:44:48

I saw something about primary school proms in the paper recently and asked DD1 (leaving primary this month) what she thought.
She said she thought they were silly, 'because really it can't be a proper prom, we would just be children dressing up and it would take the specialness of our real prom away'.
Out of the mouths of babes...
