Crime Scene

Note to all Heads. Next time a teacher comes into your office and says something along the lines of:

"I know, why don't we pretend to have been beaten up by robbers one morning next week to frighten the kids. I've got some fake blood from the joke shop and there's loads of bandages left in the first aid kit. Jim's got a mate who's a copper and they can come round, put up some of that stripey tape they use on the telly and pretend to investigate... it'll be a great laugh and we can call it 'Didactic Learning' or something daft! Go on, can we?"

It's probably best to say "No!"

Yep, that was an incredible story - can't remember where I read it. Obviously, all teachers should get their timetables and lesson plans okayed by the parents before going ahead with anything.

Thank god I don't have kids. At least I don't have to wrap any of my own up in cotton wool.

Did pupils really have their fingerprints taken?

If so, I wonder whether this was an elaborate scheme to identify a child suspected of committing a crime in the area???

Wow! That is an incredible story. Even the mad lot at or place (probably) wouldn't puul a stunt like that. Perhaps if the senior management had lessons to teach, they wouldn't be so bored and therefore wouldn't have the time to come up with such idiotic ideas.
