It was pretty strange for me to be back at school again - it seems like soooo long since I sat in assembly.
BTW: The reason the pictures shows empty chairs is that some people get kicks from seeing pictures of children - I doubt if anyone reading this blog would - but for the purpose of child protection I took the picture between classes.
What about the girl at the front! Is she bait?
