    Silly question. Every state school officially had some kind of memorial service or a two minutes silence going on.

    We had a service; so for those who thought the whole thing was pointless just chose to opt out/skive the first two minutes of lesson.

    But some don't has they feel it's a waste of time/money as they think standing .still for two minutes cost them time and money but who cares if I were boss I wouldn't care about time and money as time needs to stand still and can't keep moving on plus just stand still no need to move on rememberance is more important than money who cares right

    my sociology teacher gave us a test and said "anyone who wants to do the 2 minute silence can just stop their test for 2 minutes, but personally I don't like being told what to do"

    most (if not all) people still did it, including myself
