I was cartwheeling through the gate when I left school, both times. I hated it. Certainly at my secondary school the staff couldn't wait to see the back of us and vice versa. They were more interested in left wing politics than actually doing their job. Wonder if that still happens..?I don't get why it's now a thing that teachers get showered with gifts by their class at the end of the year. My sister teaches infants and today has been their last day of term, and she's got bottles of wine, chocolates and all sorts from the pupils. Whilst I'm sure it's nice for the teachers to get parting thank you gifts for the summer holidays, when I was at school you just left and never saw them again!
