What are some good piano processional and recessional songs for a school assembly (when the official party enters and leaves the stage)? A song that would be fairly easy to learn in 12 days and one that can easily be extended or shortened to accommodate for the varying times it takes for the party to enter/exit would be great.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions about transcribing or finding a particular song, including identifying chords, notes, key and time signatures, or similar elements, are off-topic since they are rarely useful to future readers." – Todd Wilcox, Tim H
At my junior school, we were played out of assembly every day for four years to Offenbach's 'The Bold Gendarmes' ("We're public guardians, bold yet wary"). We often wondered if he KNEW any other tunes...
A traditional 'dignitaries enter' march at Masonic and other formal dinners is Handel's 'March from Scipio'.
For civic occasions I usually manage to incorporate 'The old grey mare she ain't what she used to be'.
