EB, I agree a full on nuptual mass is blooming long and an full on furneral one is the same, but a weekday mass is roughly 1/2 an hour and a childrens' school mass is about the same.
Good luck with sorting out a new school for A.
BTW, I think you're an awesome mum, the way you support A and help him to be the best that he can is an inspiration to others.
Ah! Well I don't know if A could sit still for half an hour... I doubt it. Or rather he could sit there, but his mouth might not stay shut, and he does say the most random things!
Having attended many school masses over the years, there are always several children who have difficulty in either sitting still or being quiet during any services, imo, it's part of the charm of such services (to see children being children no matter where they are and not sitting like stuffed toys parroting what everyone else says).
Ah well, that's ok then.
To be honest, I don't see the point in having him sitting through a service of a religion he doesn't subscribe to when he could be doing something more useful (like social skills with a TA) but if the school absolutely insist, I'm prepared to 'give' on that issue. No biggie. Other issues are far more pressing, frankly.
Alex likes churches/ chapels anyway, he likes the echoes (bodes well doesn't it... lmao...)
Anyway, that issue aside (I'm sure it will resolve itself) I finally spoke to the SENCo of the potenial new school. The chat was not entirely disasterous. She seeemed not so much reluctant for Alex to come to the school, (although she didn't exactly sound enthusiastic) but perplexed as to why I would want to move him from special to mainstream, in year ten. I suppose it is a bit odd come to think of it!!!
Meeting the week before Christmas. So plenty of time to freak out. What do I need to go armed with, do you think?
