As the primary schools begin to wind down before the summer holidays, two light hearted stories for today.
The first is about John who gave his end of year school report to his father. "That's dreadful," his dad said. "You came bottom of the class of twenty boys." "It could have been worse," John replied. "There could have been more boys in my class!" The second is of an eager young teacher who wanted to introduce her class to the beauty of classical music, so she organised a trip to an afternoon concert at a classical music hall. She wanted to make the occasion memorable, so she treated them to lemonade, chocolate and ice cream. After the concert, as the class were getting back into the coach, the teacher asked Mary if she enjoyed herself. "Oh yes, Miss," Mary replied enthusiastically. "Everything was lovely, except for the music!"
