Our wee debating society members are buzzin’ so they are, about Coronavirus in the school, at the school and among pupils.

School Heidie, Mrs Sturgeon, keeps correcting them:

Douglas, Richard, Ruth! Ssssssh! Look at me. Listen. Write down what I’m saying.

These are part of community clusters which have had an impact ON schools, rather than school-based clusters. The virus has NOT been transmitted within schools.

Richard! What did I say? Repeat it. Stop nodding like that. You’ll get stuck that way. Ruth! Stop pulling that face at me.

Right, now, go back to your seats and write at least 500 words on how you think the virus got round the scheme. No, I don’t want to know what you found in Jason’s mum’s drawers.

Where’s Willie? Is he off again today?
