Tell us your story! #mySchoolAppStories
School photo day – don’t we all do our best to make sure our little darlings look neat for at least one day? Clean shirt (maybe even a new one if you’re super-organised!). Lovely ironed uniform, hair brushed into submission, or tied up in a style that will manage to hold until after break, because somebody thought it would be a good idea to book the reception class in for their photos after they’d been running around outside in the mud!
Yes, well, that’s how it’s supposed to go. But we’re all busy aren’t we? And even if we write things in our diaries or tap them into our phones, plans go awry. You get held up at work, the carton of juice explodes just as you’re getting ready to go, or you simply get up late.
And you get confused about events – there’s so many to remember – mufti days, dress-up days, take your pig to school day – okay that one didn’t happen, but you know what we mean.
The good news is that it’s not just you – see what happens when one parent gets their days muddled up in our #mySchoolAppStories video above.
We’d love to hear your tales of misunderstanding and miscommunication. Have you sent your child to school in fancy dress a week early, got the wrong end of the stick about ingredients for a cooking lesson, or packed cricket pads on swimming day? Maybe you took them in when the school was closed for inset day. The funnier the better!
Who knows, you might even inspire us for the next #mySchoolAppStories video!
