Just because of an exam....that is going to be one expensive F.
It's amazing to me that it was three girls and one boy. I expected it to be all boys who did it.
All that Greek must have caused some free thinking.
I can only imagine how they're going to pay for the damage working at a job without a degree.
crap thats crazy
The boy could have been trying to impress the girls and told them how to get out of the test....and they helped him
Or one of the girls 'used' the boy to do the dirty work
Who knows - its nuts regardless....
What ever happened to pulling the fire alarm?
My father in law used to teach physics, and in the 1970s he said students used to routinely phone in bomb threats to force them to delay the exams. It didn't take them long to figure out the solution: schedule two rooms for the exam (one secretly), and just put up a notice as to the new location when the bomb threat came in.
A very sad situation. They were only going to delay the inevitable. What has happened that no one wants to take responsibilty for their own actions. Exams are just a part of school. If you don't want to take an exam, just don't take the class.
try to keep the wacked out, defaming, political comments to the political threads... this was a simple news story that didn't need a post like yours at all...
Well, to be fair, they did take responsibility for their actions.
Just being suspended until Monday isn't much. They should have to do some community service and cleanup the mess that they made. They should be kept busy while out of school till Monday.
You know so little about girls man.
Back in my high school some one lighted a notebook and trew it in to the air conditioner system. But we had lots of things like that, the flooding was corny actually.
I wasn't all that serious, just trying to speculate on why they did, indicating that there might have been a little more to it other than just to get out of a test
- and I'm married - I know more than I'd like to about girls
Horray for causing nearly a half a million worth in damages guys.
I think I'm missing something - at what point did they break and enter?
Can anyone say "senior prank"?
"The three girls and one boy, aged between 16 and 17, delivered a letter to the school's headmaster on Thursday, explaining how last weekend they blocked drains in a bathroom before they turned on washbasin taps and left them running."
They entered the school on a weekend, at which time it was closed. So they had to gain entry illegally. They may have left a window open or something to gain easier access.
One day they will look back and realize it would have been a lot easier to just flunk a test and maybe class then to try to ruin your school, it doesn't even make sense. How much greek can you learn in a few days anyway? If you weren't prepared for a test, what makes you think you are going to be prepared after a few days?
Even for being an old school, shouldn't it have alarms? My school has motion alarms... of course, the main reason for em is for lights, but still, they do set em off if a code or something isnt' put in at the office within a decent time.
