IN PERSON
The Butterfly Club presents

Jude Perl Participation Award

Jude Perl's overall level of achievement and demonstration of knowledge within Semester 1 has been basic. Jude is able to:

1. Present her work in a colourful manner
2. Enthusiastically discuss a range of mundane micro-traumas
3. Consistently include '90s references to win over the millennial audience

To further consolidate their learning, Jude should aim to improve her ability to:

1. Revise and proof read her work before handing it in
2. Use active listening skills to engage in detailed discussions critiquing her work with strangers
3. Stop relying on '90s references to win over the millennial audience.

Singer, songwriter and comedian Jude Perl presents a historically accurate (*citation needed) show, which begs the age-old question – why does school suck so much? Is it the compulsory sporting events? One size fits all grading methods? Maintaining your precarious position in a volatile social food chain? Or is it just the arbitrary bullying? 

Delivered with her signature high-energy, high-awkward, vulnerable-when-no-one-asked-her-to-be musical story telling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages, (her ages). As it turns out, confrontation isn't so hard if you just close your eyes and imagine you are in a calmer, distant place... then all you have to do is move to that place, change your name and hair colour, and that way the person you are confronting has no way of ever finding you.
