Half of our ones weren't proper memes, but I suppose that's not such a big deal... A couple of captioned teacher photos which were the biggest prob, I reckon
Haha I guess it is! My insurance will probably be Glasgow, and they're even worse for it :P
Our school grew so fed up of sheet losing they organised an online network thingy for parents to access letters. My parents at least didn't understand it/couldn't be bothered, I'm guessing they weren't the only ones, and then after one year the fascists decided sixth-form were now forbidden from using the system to keep up to date with our notices. Why are school administration systems so worthless?
Has your school got one of those meme pages? I think ours is being run by year 12s, and the DH is trying to scare them into closing it, so I'm feeling fiercely anti-establishment today...
Aha, so both systems encourage a new generation of forgers - very commendable.
I actually prefer the old system, whereby every offence could merit an immediate detention. But that might be from a position of relative security, if I'd been giving up more of my evenings I probably wouldn't see it like that...
So if that's the same carrot, what's your stick? Lower school have this thing called a "red card", where you need to have four offences signed off before they give you a detention - the school doesn't seem to have realised how easy it is to just fill in the fourth box yourself...
Schools get very good at control, especially in the younger years - we had a system of "credits", it was like the sticker a dentist gives you for being good, but you'd be amazed the power it has over year 7s. And if you're desperate for extra work, or to give in work, it's surely common courtesy to wait until after class? No manners...
Dad couldn't care less, but my mum doesn't have much control anymore :P
That's such a gitty little thing to do It's not even like teachers' expect any info, if they ask they only do it for the look of the thing... Completely unnecessary.
It wasn't too bad 'cos she's quite a laid-back teacher, but it was a shock to be spied on like that (she'd never brought her son to school or anything, and sixth-form don't wear uniform, so we have no idea how he recognised us).
Obvs it's coursework season right now, and we've had a couple of boys claiming to be really ill because they haven't done the work. Teachers don't believe them at all (having heard the gossip about what parties they've gone to at the weekend, etc. etc.), but when the parents are willing to lie for them there isn't much to be done
Haha! One set last year, everybody apart from me left halfway through (I wanted to get my money's worth; they wanted to go shopping on Oxford street, I think) and then our teacher's son happened to be there, recognised us and told his mum the rest of them all went early...
Seriously slacking there, Harry :P
Ah well, a change is as good as a rest, as the saying goes. We went to some English lectures last year and I thought they were quite decent, although perhaps not exam-helpful.
It's a good ride too, rocking like an old tea lady. I've got no idea at all about prices, just stick a fiver on my oyster when I get a chance and it seems to be fine...
No, I meant the school trip tomorrow :P
