How was your last day of school?

Now, I know things are different this year.
My last day of primary school was a great day. It sort of the end of something good and whilst looking forward to the next chapter and growing up.
We signed shirts and generally there was a good vibe around the school and people were looking forward to the holidays. It was a boys school and there was no tears and hugs,etc.
There was terrible thunder and lightning that evening and we met up in town for chips,pizza.

Whilst with secondary school I basically stopped going at the end of April apart from the odd day in May. Lots did this also. We got a text on about the 11th of May to say we were finished for the year. I don’t think they wanted trouble. Did my exams and was done with the place.

How was your last day of school?

Veronica Guerin was murdered on the day I finished primary school.

The only thing I remember from my last day of primary school was going into the principals office and asking for the return of my previously confiscated spud gun.

My year was “politely” asked not to come back 2 weeks before the end of term.

Was there a minor scandal involving a soggy biscuit?

I remember it was unbelievably hot and sunny on the day I finished primary. Everyone was hugging and signing shirts etc. I remember rushing out the gate and walking home as fast possible thinking ugh, I hate that sentimental crap!

I finished second level on my 18th birthday. I had changed schools fairly recently but made a few good acquaintances there but who were not really friends. We met up in the Bleeding Horse for a few drinks that evening to mark the finish of school, and I never saw any of them again after that.

The teachers had a party for us and our families and I was bawling by the time we were out the gates, certain I'd never make a functioning adult. Still not sure about that. I liked school.

Couldn't wait to get out of primary school.

Haha, no. Nothing so seedy, J. If you’ll pardon the pun.

No, there were a number of, shall we say, “unruly”, pranks and some light rumpus followed.

Needless to say, the dean didn’t take to kindly to it and we were told to go home and not to come back until sitting the Leaving Cert.

Light rumpus? Did this take place in 1878 or something?

Can barely remember it at all. I was just so glad to be getting out of it that if I had to guess I vaguely remember not going in for the last few days.
