The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

Nicholas or Knicker-less…?

Following a swimming lesson, the children were changing back into their school uniform. I suddenly hear shrieks of ‘I’ve lost my knickers! I’ve lost them, they’re gone! I’ve lost my knickers!’

I observed the girl as she problem-solved. A friend, who was being helpful and kind as I had taught them to be, said kindly,

‘It’s okay, we just won’t do handstands at morning tea!’

The two girls were most confused when I told them this was not the way to solve that particular problem.



Just as a friend…

Toward the end of the school year, one boy asked if I had a job at the school for the following year as we walked to lunch play. I told him that I did. He gave an approving nod. I then asked, ‘Why? Do you like me?’ Very quickly, the boy stopped very quickly, threw his hands up in the air and said, 

‘Yeah, but just as a friend, okay Miss Rainbow?’

Duly noted. 


Have you seen this movie? A great watch!
