** During an Easter story lesson, one wee girl (P5) was absolutely desperate to share her knowledge of the sequence of events. Other children were barely getting a chance to answer, such was her eagerness.
When asked about the meal that Jesus and his disciples shared, the class
seemed to have forgotten that this was referred to as the Last Supper.
Eventually the teacher gave in and asked the girl what the answer was.
"Sunday lunch!" she replied in a show-off manner.
Needless to say, the teacher could barely control her giggles.

Therefore a discussion started about which of the children had lost their parents when out and about.
One of the wee girls was keen to share her experience and told the class that she had been out shopping with her mum in Littlewoods but her mum had vanished,as she did not see her mum go up the "alligator"!

* Colin( age 5) was in trouble for clouting other kids round the lugs in
the playground. When asked why he had done it, he replied that it was
