This is a question School Assemblies

Our school assemblies were often presided over by the local vicar, who once warned us of the dreadful dangers of mixing with "Rods and Mockers". One of the cool teachers laughed. Tell us about mad headteachers and assemblies gone wrong.

Inspired by the mighty @Rhodri on Twitter

Last day of school.
Not an assembly story, but a school story nevertheless. We were in 5th year. It was the last day of school for most of my class, but some of us were staying on and going into 6th form. Our R.E. teacher, Mr. Baynton, decided he wanted to impart some words of wisdom before the class broke up for the last time. What he said was not what I expected to hear, but it stuck in my brain and is still with me today, some 34 years later. What he shared with us was this: The world doesn't owe you a living. He was right.

No, but the Welfare State will pick up the slack.
