    ask your science techs for this:
    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isopropyl_alcohol]Isopropyl alcohol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    it won't damage the board

    LOL (sorry!)

    Had this happen in a primary school, should be okay with CyberNerd's recommendation and a soft cloth!

    But don't let the supply teacher off so lightly!

    With a permanent marker or a normal board marker? what is a permanent marker doing in the class room?

    If it truly is a permanent marked then some isopropyl from your science dept will remove it.

    If it's normal whiteboard marker some hard surface cleaner from your caretaker will do it.

    I use this
    Durable 5757/19 Whiteboard Fluid 250ml 5757/19
    not just to get permanent marker off but to give them a clean every month

    Thanks all

    We dont have a science department

    And we have the Durable stuff Ozzy but it isn't shifting it.

    As to why a permanent marker is in the classroom by the IWB i don't know.

    More annoyed at the Y6s for just sitting back and watching her do it.

    Silly suggestions, but you might be more likey to have these, Aftershave or Lynx deodorant will do it.

    Try a drywipe marker over the top of the permanent ink - works for us.

    I bought a large bottle of Isopropyl alcohol from my local chemists. Give them a try

    this might sound daft but aftershave or perfume on a cloth will work I've done that before, with my own Hugo Boss no less!!

    The blood of the teacher diluted three parts to one with their tears.

    I used to hate it when this happened. We had one teacher do it three times to the same board. The second time we confiscated their pens, so they went out and bought more to do it again. Usually it was a one-off though, when people didn't realise they were interactive boards.

    It'll definitely be worth your while keeping a bottle of isopropyl alcohol, or foam cleaner or similar on hand. These incidents seem to come in batches.

    We have used hair spray in the past and this worked fine.

    Brasso also works, gets marker pen off any surface like that, we use it on PC's quite a bit and also whiteboards in the office when we have picked the wrong pen up.
