I got mine from Crazy Clarks... went on a Sunday afternoon when they had casuals on, asked for 1.2 metres and she couldn't work it out so just gave me 2 metres! What are our schools teaching nowadays!!

I know this is right off the topic - I apologise - but I have to share with you something my 12 year old godson said to me a couple of weeks back - and yes it does make me wonder what schools are teaching them!

He was having trouble operating my microwave and asked me if I could heat something up for him. I asked him how long he wanted it heated for and he said:

"60 seconds........or even maybe a minute, but no more!"

Or another question could be, how did your godson get to twelve years old and the parents still not realise he didn't know the difference between a minute and sixty seconds?
If the parents just pack the kid off to school everyday and and just assume that things are ok, well they just have to take whats given too him. But maybe getting involved with his education by keeping up to date with what he is doing might just bring about a more balanced education

I came across a grade 5 student last year who could not spell the months of the year and she was attending a private school.

I think the emphasis is on too many other things these days and not the real issues of the 3R's as we once were taught.

PS
And another good thread hijack has been achieved....

January and February would be a little hard for a grade fiver, but the other months should be no problem

She actually had problems with April and September and I do believe that at grade 5 level being able to spell the months of the year should be mandatory. IMO.

Will go and get some shade cloth whenn I return from Sydeny Frilly. Going down for Origin One and go the other footy games and the horse racing next week.

One night I will just get the ferry and float the harbour. I have travelled a bit in the world and the Sydney Harbour is one of the best harbours I have ever seen :grin:
