I was eating my lunch in the hall, surrounded by kids but engrossed in adult conversations. I remarked with my friend, the TA, that it is good sport to watch the behaviour of the kids in my next class. As I did this, I was interrupted by the Deputy Head, with two little people in tow.
"This is what you've got to look forward to Sir".
They had gone ham at a girls ponytail with a pair of scissors. I thought it was more remarkable that the scissors had managed to cut through anything at all, but still, it's a looming omen for next year.
