It was 15 mins before lunch and I was going out of the school, there were two s2 pupils standing outside the school on the road that goes past it. I challenged them about not being in class, did not get much of a response. I continued on my errand and phoned the school to see where they should be. They had skived most of the morning. On my return they were still there. It was by now just about lunch time. I attempted to tell them both to get back to school. One was "No I'm waiting for my friends" the other I told to go for his lunch, at least he would be back in the building. The other refused to budge. Now the question, what can be done with the pupils who just blank refuse to cooperate whilst truanting? Can any agency do anything?
