    GCSE pupils evacuated from the infern in Grenfell Tower turned up on time for their exam the next morning, in their pyjamas. That's resilience!
    Looking forward to next time a pupil challenges my assertion that you really do have to be there, and they won't move it for you if you have a headache/ feel sick etc etc. They miss school exams for the slightest thing and expect to be accommodated. I am filled with admiration for these children, while saddened that part of turning up might have been just that it gave them somewhere to go for a short time.

    It's slowly filtering through who the residents of Grenfell Tower were. It seems there were middle eastern refugees among them who came to Britain for a better life. The ones that the Brexit folk never wanted, but might well be the people the country needs.

    Who wants to put that in their pipe and smoke it?

    Someone we really don't need is our current interim PM.

    Or comments by Duke which are outstandingly biased and untrue.

    My sort of student. House is burning down, so she rescues her chemistry revision.

    You think they are the wrong sort then?

    In what manner are they the wrong sort?
