I missed the rolling gang battle we had at school today. Surprising really, given that after it was broken up it restarted itself twice in different areas. The camera-phone footage the students showed me painted it as a large, brutal affair. But I'm not worried. This may have been one of the more fierce go-rounds this year, but it wasn't the first, nor will it be the last. I don't worry about mob violence. I worry about publicity.

This had to happen on our fucking enrollment day, didn't it?

Filthy with prospective students we were. Swarming with parents bringing their eager, bright eyed, keeping-the-Ministry-from-thinking-we-should-be-decomissioned children into our hallowed halls.

Oh well, at least our public relations department (which I think is basically this blog) now has a runner up for the time a couple of years back when our open day co-incided with the front page headline "Student Stabbed At School"...

Because, you know, I like a challenge...

Wouldn't it be much easier if you were a pirate jack?, "Arrrr, we likes our students high spirited here!, double rum for every man AND boy!"

I've been told my hair makes me look like a pirate when I only tie it back loosely.

And I'm not giving the children rum - they're drunk enough already...

Holy shit. Our school can't compete. I wish we could. But we can't.

Although, I do agree with Adonis'comment. I would be easier for you to pretend these were just highjinks.
