GoldCoast.com.au has the heartbreaking news that their All Saints School students face the difficult choice of going on the annual Canberra trip or seeing One Direction.
The head of middle school, Todd Harm, knows he’s picked a fight with a pop culture phenomenon but says the Canberra trip is locked in because bookings have been made.
One Direction put tickets for their Australian tour on sale 18 months in advance and all 20 shows have sold out.
“There’s no point trying to deny it: the boy band One Direction is a force with which to be reckoned,” he wrote in the school newsletter.
“(But) I’m afraid we can not entertain the idea of organising Year 7 into two groups: 1D fans and the rest.
“Thus, 1D fans may ultimately have to choose between the concert and trip.”
The annual Canberra trip, which has been booked for September 8 to 13 next year, visits Parliament House and other iconic buildings.
Perspective teabagging parliament house? Or a boy band? It’s tough being young these days.
For our elderly, or merely blissfuly ignorant, readers I’ve included a One Direction song. You don’t have to click it.
