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

Lessons learned from Rocky III
Every Monday and Friday the ~800 boys of our school would gather in the main hall, and the teachers and the head boy would be seated on the stage. When everybody was in position our Scottich headmaster, gown and all, would walk through the crowd of boys and take his place upon the stage with the teachers.

It had been remarked that his entrance resembled that of a boxer... So for the last assembly before they left, a group of prefects with access to the schools PA decided to cue up "Eye of the Tiger" to play when the head began his walk to the stage.

Although this plan worked perfectly and caused much amusement amongst the sixth formers who knew what was going on, those responsible seemed somewhat surprised that the head did not find it funny. As the glowering headmaster approached the stage the look on the head boy's face slowly changed to terror and he began frantically making the "cut" gesture. The music stopped and in his best "Mr Mackay from Porridge" voice simply said "There will be no more of that".

Those responsible escaped expulsion (although they were leaving anyway this would have meant having their exam entries removed) probably only because one of the perpertrators was the son of a maths teacher.

What an old spoilsport!
That was a great prank. Both flattering and ironic.
