    In Year 7 and 8 my teacher promised every lesson that he would mark all our books and give them back by the next lesson... I usually took him a few months. There's some work from halfway through Year 7 that he didn't give back to people in my class until the end of Year 8 and I never saw the project I stayed up until 1 am doing ever again (((I considered 1 am to be very late at night when I was in Year 8))).
    He also regularly told us he'd give the whole class chocolate if he hadn't marked our books when he promised to. We got chocolate maybe twice(?) even though he promised it a couple of times a month for two years.

    A paper towel solves everything.

    Grazed knee? Paper towel!
    Broken arm? Paper towel!
    You've smashed your head open? Paper towel!

    Or that story about the boy who swung on his chair and cracked his head open, whenever someone swung on their chair. In year 6 I and my friend had a huge cupboard behind us, so we could rest on it if we swung back, and we still got scolded with the same familiar tale.

    Omg! This exact thing happened at my highschool. I love French so I chose GCSE French regardless, but I HATED the fact I was surrounded by people that didn't want to be there because they had been forced because of the "English Baccalaureate" recommendations.

    The legend of the student, who also incidentally went to your specific school, who used to swing on his chair, fell off it, broke his neck in more than 14 ways, punctured his heart, his lungs came out of his mouth and died.

    We used to play heads down thumbs up during Year 6 French (great quality lessons, right?)

    Whoever was last to win, before the French teacher had to go, would be told that they'd be 'first' the following week, and she'd even make a note for us! Never happened - but it kept the interest until people realised she only picked her 'favourites'. Every single week.:dontknow:

    We were promised munchies in English in year 7. Then she said that she forgot, then she said that Mr Hale ate them all. I am still owed munchies, I have one year left to receive them, before I prosecute.

    Teacher before economics exam: I have never seen the price mechanism come up on it's own as a longer answered exam question so don't revise it very much, just understand how to illustrate it.

    Day of the exam: 15 marker exam question on the price mechanism

    Teacher after the exam: Well it's only 15 marks, you'll still get an A.

    No, that he died, because he hit his hypothalamus (this was in science) and was paralysed, couldn't breath and consequently died.
