Poem of the Day

A Letter from the Principal

Dear Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith,

I’m writing you this letter

because your son’s behaviour

isn’t getting any better.

 

His writing is untidy and

his spelling is a worry.

He’s often late and consequently,

always in a hurry.

 

His recent science project

nearly caused a school disaster.

The explosion covered twenty boys

in clouds of ceiling plaster.

 

He’s been with us for twenty years,

or is it twenty two?

Dear Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith,

just what are we to do?

 

He’s untidy and he’s silly

and he always acts the fool,

but still the students say he’s

the best teacher in our school.

  1. Great work Pat.
    As a former teacher I really enjoyed this.
    Sadly there doesn’t seem to be much fun nowadays not even time for the 3 R’s with all other demands on teachers.
    Bring back some fun I say !!!!!!!!!!!!!
