    well, now i'm on vacation for 2 weeks. then, 3 days of school. and then almost a week later exams. everyone is going crazy because of such a stupid scheduling. what the hell can we do in three days after vacation???

    and the dressing thing... we had it about a month ago - "spirit week" to pump up the school spirit before NECIS, the main sports competition between schools in northern europe.

    also, last week we took graduation photos with those robes and gowns! everyone looked so ridiculous!

    Yeh we had a school spirit support week (due to our Nazi headmistress).

    We were.. o yes "developing the school Ethos." I kid you not.

    Not to mention healty food week, and assemblies every fridays for the past two years.

    Last week of school? We kind of drifted in a semi dazed state from lesson to lesson acting like we were very industrious as Hitler in a dress stalked around inspecting random classrooms to make sure everyone was still at work. Then we were bombarded by hours of mind-numbingly boring, communist style propaganda about how amazing our school is, provided of course, by our headmistress.

    Luckily we now have holidays, and then we have a week of study leave before the exams, with voluntary consultations (I'll prolly go in for the math and computer science ones, I'd go for physics but our teacher sucks certain round objects on a regular basis so...).

    So yah, our last week of school is nonexistant, I'm already on "holidays" (read, studying/revising).

    i'd say in my grade maximum 20% of people are actually stressed out. 60% pretend that they are stressed out. and the rest just doesn't give a s***. fun fun, isn't it?

    true true. but then again. we have this guy in our grade who literally comes high to school. he did his extended essay, tok essay, and business internal assessment in a space of 4 days maximum. he doesn't show up to classes, and even if he does he is 30 munites late at least. but then again, he still thinks he has chances to get 7s. the saddest thing is... well, that's true! he can hope at least for 6s in all the subjects. damn. if i was that smart (academically)... but he is such an idiot.

    well, in my school we tend to take out chairs from the class rooms, place vaseline on door handles, throw butter, flour, water, drinks at other students....write stupid things on our school track like a big 'penis', plant a tree in the middle of our soccer pitch. throw candy at the younger, go to school with rollerblades, go to a teacher you truly hate and tell them they were a ****ty teacher etc............:cool:

    I know what you mean! a few years ago, some people put a load of chickens in the library and a raw fish in the air vent, after that, the head said that no one would get their diploma if they played pranks like that (we keep it low-key and try not to get caught now lol). I still think that something momentus should happen on the last week - just to make up for how difficult the IB is!
