Day 306 - Yr 12 Graduation Dinner

I attended the Year 12 Graduation dinner tonight which proved to be an enjoyable evening - great to see the graduating students so pleased with themselves for finishing their schooling. My most annoying student this year thanked me for putting up with him so I suppose it was worth going just for that.


  1. That's saying something - the annoying student realised what he was and how tolerant you've been.

  2. I did put up with a lot but I don't see that we have much choice. The government schools allow all comers to complete Year 12 and we are encouraged to jolly them along and pass them, come what may. Of course some of these extremely non academic students don't even receive an Enter,their scores are so low. And the new law is for students to remain at school till they're 17. Where are the old technical schools?? I think I'm getting too old for this - I'm losing my tolerance!
