After XY finished her exam, her teacher passed me a piece of paper. It was a speech, for her to introduce her dance on concert night (this coming Saturday). She was selected last year and I thought they would select another student this time. I'm wondering how come they don't give the chance to other students to speak on stage. But of course I'm very proud of her. The fact that she's been selected again shows that the teachers have confidence in her. Last year, I had to read to her but this time, she can read most of the words.
Within a day, she was able to memorise the speech. However she doesn't stop at the right places and tend to mumble to herself sometimes. Now I can say she's ready. Her speech's loud and clear, pausing at the right places. I just hope she'll not panic when she's standing on stage, facing so many audience. Although she's had the experience, now that she's older, she's more aware of her surroundings and may be a little shy when the time comes. Anyway, just have to prepare her for that night, and hope for the best.
She skipped school today coz she's having runny nose and coughing. Good thing she's as active as ever, with no fever. I doubt she'll be fully recovered by tomorrow. They're having full rehearsal for the concert at the venue tomorrow. Hopefully she won't be too tired. Have to be in tip top condition for Saturday night.
