Now this rarely happens in teaching - an extra day off. But it happened today and I will remember it for the rest of my career.
There was a fire in the school assembly hall and we all got sent home. Fortunately, it happened at 7am this morning and no-one was hurt.
Now although I was happy about getting an extra day off - I was actually looking forward to going to school (for once). Shame.
I decided that I would take myself into town and buy even more clothes - it seems that all of the kids had the same idea.
