It is a well-known fact that our students work incredibly hard. Their timetables are packed with classes which generally run from early in the morning right up until they start rehearsals in the evening. As the term progresses, it is common to see a grayish tinge of exhaustion on everyone’s face. It then behoves us teachers to make our classes even more interesting, useful and entertaining than ever, to help them stay awake. On one particularly memorable occasion, I had a student fall asleep midway through answering a question I’d just asked him!
So, APA students really earn their breaks and I would like to wish them in particular, and everyone in general, a most enjoyable and restful Chinese New Year holiday to kick off a most lively and spirited Year of the Horse!
