Radio announcer Harley Breen shares what he really HATES about school pick up.

Dad of two, Harley has a six year old son at school and regularly does the pick up three afternoons a week. One of them being on Monday when there is always a school assembly.

Harley’s big jibe is the fact that school assembly runs late every single week. The poor kids are getting in trouble constantly for moving around and not paying attention.

He also mentioned the crappy performances, the crappy awards for things like putting rubbish in the bin and the never ending birthday announcements. The list goes on.

His main concern was why the kids are let out late every week when parents are in a rush to get out of the yard.

For me as a mum my biggest issue is please don’t expect them to sit like statues on a hot day in a stuffy room.  Ewwww remember that? I always hated assembly as a kid.  So stinky and HOT!

Watch below and see if you can relate?

How often do you attend school assembly? Do you love or loathe them?

  • they could make this more comfortable for parents and kids! no doubt


  • I don’t like the school pick up because of the total lack of parking availability !


  • We always had school assemblies of a morning. I thought it was lovely that the school rang us to say when our kids were getting an award so we could be there to support and congratulate them


  • Not only that, it restricts the availability of car parks for parents to pick their children up. We always had assembly in the morning so it didn’t matter as much if it went for longer than it should. By the end of the day the kids are tired too, and possibly hungry and/or thirsty too.


  • We were talking about school assembly the other day when we were young and how it was time consuming!
