Back2Skool Disco

Disco 01

The Back2Skool Disco on Saturday evening attracted a motley band of belligerent and rebellious pupils — miscreants, the lot of 'em! Sneaking out for a quick puff, a few snogs behind the bike sheds and any excuse for a brawl. They certainly din't need no ejucation!

Staff did their best to keep the unruly mob under control, but one Ofsted inspector was less than impressed, and made specific reference to "Naughty boys in nasty schools, Headmasters breaking all the rules..."

Most of his notes were a little vague, and may need some careful interpretation .... maybe you can make sense? Something along the lines of:

For the first time in history, round about half past ten ...
Napoleon did surrender ...
Young man, are you listening to me ...?
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' ... a little old place where we can get together
(There was even a bit of GCSE French thrown in): Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ...?

Any ideas?

Meanwhile, Helen, Shelley and other staff members did a wonderful job running the tuck shop and collecting the dinner money — altogether they pocketed over £400, which they secreted away from Skool funds in favour of the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

It was a riot !!

Thankfully, evidence was captured by the caretaker, from cctv images — see the GALLERIES
