    I feel old as I type this, I haven't been in school since 94', but this thread prompted me to start this new thread :)

    What did you do for leavers, In your school, that perhaps you thought was fun or funny at the time, but you now realise was a bit stupid? (what didnt we think was stupid?)

    My mates and I dismantled a school teachers VW beetle, and re-assembled it inside an UPSTAIRS classroom.

    Another teacher's old 'mini', we would either pick it up and place it between two tree's, or carefully lay it down on a flight of stairs... this car would also constantly cop some 'bricks' under the front of it, to give the illusion it was on the ground, but when the teacher went to drive off.... ooop.

    those were the days. Other kids would superglue the locks on the doors in the school, thats just wrong in my opinion.

    OH, and that time we dumped a few trailer loads of swamp mud mixed with fish emulsion in the school foyer.. ha ha haaaa

    We would put crickets in the school. And some stuff called Catfish Charlie, which is basically a gooey, smelly catfish bait. The night of our 'big' prank, we gave up because we were being watched too closely. However, a few guys stayed late, broke in to the school, and knocked over all the bookshelves in the library. That was cruel in my opinion. They graduated, but barely.

    Cybix, you didn't by any chance go to school in Upminster in Essex, did you? A couple of those sound very familiar. :D

    We decided that some sort of momentous passing should take part on our last day. This included:

    Stealing the coffee mugs bit by bit over two weeks from the 6th form common room and then blocking the corridor to the head of sixth form's office with about 150 coffee cups on the last day. Apparently she got really angry, and I kind of felt bad, but it was a funny idea.

    Blowing streams of bubbles over the head teacher's head whilst making a momentous speech in the final assembly.

    Getting revoltingly drunk and having a giant water fight. Me and my friends were drinking our booze out of coffee mugs as opposed to bottles, and therefore escaped the raid on the booze, due to our, er, stealthiness.

    Covering our head of sixth form's car with A4 photocopied sheets (it's a long story as to the subject, but was amusing).

    and last but very much not least:

    Cracking the teachers' "code" of using their initals and second letter of surname (i.e. CBe) and spending a couple of weeks copying down the timetables of the entire school. On the last day, we put messages in the registers of the whole school for the first lesson saying things like:

    We used the initals of the most hideous deputy headteacher ever, and thought it would be a laugh. As it happened, about half the teachers believed the notices, and there were classes wandering about all over the school, and chaos reigned. We had no idea it would actually work, and later on we found that the deputy head had got bollocked by the head for screwing everyone around. I assume she protested her innocence, but when we heard that later, we were like "Our work here is done". :D I'm more proud of this than my A level results, and, frankly, it took a lot more effort. :p

    That last one is awesome, Lau! We had no such technology in 1981. I like the coffee cup thing as well.

    Well over the last few years the schools have really cracked down so we weren't really allowed to do all that much.

    We were allowed to do whatever we liked to each other out on the oval on Muck-up day so we made a giant pit filled with green cornflour slime that we'd all been cooking up over the week. Then there was waterboms, paintbombs, whipped cream and lots of dry grass that we all got plastered with.

    I organised a bit of a prank because I hated our evil librairan. I got every year 12 to borrow the maximum number of books (that's 5 x 120 = 600). Then we got four big lockers, filled them up with books and dumped them in the library on the last day of school. *evil grin*

    But the funniest end of year thing that I've ever seen was a few years ago (before they got strict) when I saw someone have an entire squid thrown at them. There were also sheep running through the school corridors that year. :D

    great stuff, Cybix :)

    On his last day, a mate of mine released 3 pigs into the school library with numbers 1, 2 and 4 sprayed on the sides of them. It was great fun watching them look for number 3 :D

    It was funny, because I think it was the fact that the teachers signed stuff like that meant we got away with it. The timetables were up on a board outside the staff room, so it took many afternoons staying late trying to write down all the permutations, and then trying to retimetable the whole school into different rooms. Well worth it though. :D

    Something you said about the UK earlier made me think you had connections in the Uk, and as my friend in Upminster did a similar thing with a Mini on an upper floor. :D

    It was awesome actually — watching stern teachers pour whisky and coke down the drain whilst we supped on ours in coffee cups. :p


    Max: the entire squid is effing classic. :p

    Or indeed in Tavistock in Devon :D

    The 'little car in funny places' type pranks seem very common. I remember one of our teachers' minis being repeatedly placed upside down onto its roof.

    Over-fertilized the grass into a 15 foot rude gesture of the hand. ;) It could be seen from the surrounding windows and footpaths with stunning accuracy.

    It took a lot of time (in the dark) to line up properly, I had some anal-retentive friends, but the results were beautiful! The hard part was patiently waiting for the grass to change over several days. Worth the wait though.

    (they had a hard time getting rid of it I hear, ooops) :D It was sort of evil but we were kids.

    Loud air horns mounted so they go off when teaches open doors... Is a funny sight to watch.

    Nonetheless, we play tons of little harmless practical jokes everyday, but we have yet to do any large scale "leavers" (never heard that one before). :cool:
