    What an afternoon!

    Went to the shop at lunchtime to get some lunch and when I got back 10 minutes later, the whole school had been evacuated...just before I went to the shop I could smell gas, so reported it to the school office. They rang the gas board and spoke to smt and their advice was to evacuate.

    at 12.45 the whole school was taken to the next primary school up from us (about 10 minutes walk away), whilst i stayed behind with the office staff and redirected parents and waited for gasboard and fire service....at 2pm they gave us the all clear and that there was no leak, then we had to take all of the kids coats up to them, redistribute them and then they all came back to school for home time at 3.15!

    i'm glad thats all over! the amount of work done this afternoon...0, standing around in the cold....1

    anybody else have an exciting afternoon? oh yeah, I'm only just getting round to eat lunch!

    Can't take any risks, especially with children .

    As for my afternoon, I have been sitting in my cupboard (otherwise known as the server room) designing some posters. I'm very lucky to have a cupboard actually, most primary schools don't have one (admittedly I have yet to see a school that they have had to resort to shoving the servers in the corridor).

    Sure no one had accidentally broke wind after a good curry:

    well they did give curry to the year 5's last week when we were away on an outdoor activity trip.

    it was the parents that shocked me as they were complaining that we evacuated the school whilst their son/daughter hadn't had their lunch! well tough, its better that they're child is safe and hungry than full & blown up!

    Hmm that's a tough one! A child's life, or lunch.... life, or lunch. What was on the menu today? :twisted:

    Don't be so sure - I did some work with a primary school last year and the server WAS in the corridor.

    Yup, got one here too!

    And another where the server sits in the corner of the ICT Suite. First thing I did within an hour of starting work there was attach DO NOT TOUCH signs all over the box and the console!

    And within 30 minutes, the previously-untouched "box in the corner" had messy finger prints all over it and toast in the floppy drive

    Whats a floppy drive? Do computers really still come with these?

    You should be saying "and toast in the DVD RAM drive"
