Rumours are flying around today that some students are looking at causing havoc with the network today. I am not looking forward to it, especially with ICT exams going on aswell.
Most of them have been on the school field since 5am drinking...
They do it every year, yet the staff know the outcomes but are 'powerless' to stop it...
Powerless to do anything? Chuck em off, get the police to confiscate the alcohol & clip em round the ear.
Although more likely it is a case of safer there than some random other place at least they are in a 'safe' environment. I have opposing views about this tactic though.
Surely it's a major dereliction of duty for teachers (esp. SMT) to let kids get away with it?
On my last day we changed all the shortcuts on our last day, so every shortcut on startmenu point at a network worms game, made for an interesting afternoon (although we did have help of the NM!)
At my daughter's school last year, the HT surpressed the riot of Y13 leaving with an ice cream van and bouncy castle. The previous year's turfing of one of the corridors hadn't gone down well (though the teachers thought it was funny)
Apparently a similar deal was struck with Y13 this year, which they agreed to, but they decided to mess about anyway. Nothing particularly serious, I think... lots of clingfilm, water pistols and bubble-bath in the loos. My daughter thinks there will be a rather draconian approach taken to Y13 and Y11 last days next year... she'll be in Y11.
I don't remember us getting up to anything much on the last day when I was at school. I think they kicked us out a day before they told us we were finishing!
On my last day (in the early 80s ) ), there was a massive shaving foam/ water fight on the school field at lunch time and we were all dripping wet until we were allowed to go home at 4pm
Thank god that day is over. Phew. Bit manic, but nothing too bad I guess....
we moved the heads escort into the assembly hall...that confused people a bit.. It's not exactly hard to get all of the year together to lift a MK3 'scort after all.
This years 11s left quietly..shirt and book signing everywhere (we print out labels and stick them in), and the odd few hugs. Some kids are weird, they actually like us.
IIRC I'm the in the leavers assembly slideshow with a big hammer, saying "I'll miss you all, if you run fast enough and dodge when I go home." Bless.
"will you miss us?"...every year the same question. Been here 9 years, seen so many come and go. The only ex-student I don't miss is the one I'm taxiing around with morning sickness..and it's a bit hard to get shot of her after all this time..
