Ok let me show you his timetable then:
7:20 - 8:20am music pracitce: blowing a bassoon for one hour
8:40-10:20am lessons start
10:30-11am singing lesson, at other end of school - its not a compact site.
11-12pm bassoon lesson - how is he supposed to get across the other side of the school lugging two bags without missing at least ten minutes of a lesson which costs £150+ per hour?
1:15-2:15pm bassoon lesson, again at the opposite side of the school.
The only opportunity he has to eat is at breakfast. He can't wolf down a sandwich and then play bassoon, he needs a minimum of half an hour to digest or he'll be sick. In total he has 3.5 hours of intense blowing or singing with no breaks and only breakfast.
Sorry, Belinda, I didn't realise I wasn't allowed to be aggrieved on behalf of my son just because we don't live in a third world country. I mean, isn't everything posted on this site trivial with such an argument?
And I'm not interested in if you think he should tough it or not. I want to know if children legally must have breaks!
