  • Have schools broken up already?

    On the dog walk, there was a bunch of teens hanging in the most boring field in the world. Oh to be young again.

    And then when we were walking back there were a couple of brats hogging the pavement skating on some crappy plastic skates. I reigned the dog in, one brat came rolling vaguely in our direction, (just pick a side of the pavement and stick to it moron! ). He fell over. I had to laugh

    Most school children will still be in school. Those that are doing their GCSEs though may be on what is sometimes called "study leave", where they only have to go into school for their exams and should be spending their new free time studying for them.

      In Scotland the kids at primary and the ones not doing exams will finish on Friday this week, the ones who have done exams left about 2 weeks ago.

        HaHaHaHaHaHa That's a good one!

        One school I used to work in stopped the pre-exam study leave and made them all come into school to study, boy were the kids annoyed but the exam results seemed to prove it was worthwhile.

            My son went back to school today to strart the A2l courses. (thats second year of A levels)
            They got two weeks of study leave, but only after all their exams had finished. The head doesn't think it does any good and so they did weeks and weeks of slog revision and going through exam papers etc.

              Yep a lot of the gcse's are nearly over, my son finished a week ago. Now it's also prom time, took my son to get his outfit he's 6 foot 5 and only 16! did get something to fit and i felt very tearful as he looked so grown up, he is usually on the park with his football covered in mud.

                Still going strong in my little area of East Lancashire, although my daughter 'finished' secondary school on the 27th May, she's had a few study classes, and I think she has around 3 exams left.

                Prom is in 2 weeks, we have the dress sorted, have the jewellery made, just struggling to find some shoes that are not sandals (or boots.... who buys boots at this time of year?)

                  Please can you refrain from calling children "brats" all the time. It really is uncalled for and in this case maybe they cannot afford to buy anything better than what you refer to as "crappy plastic skates". I'm not saying all children are perfect, but I believe you should tone it down a little.

                        Well said Indri. I was thinking exactly the same thing.

                          I was wondering too as we had a Dad yesterday bringing in his two daughters, maybe 8 or 10 years old, late morning to the shop. I also saw some kids playing around at what should have been school time the other day. None of the shools are supposed to be off yet around here either.
