A storm in a teacup?

Category Five tornado in the Earl Grey receptacle, considering the diesel fumes emanating from the poorly maintained 4WD land yachts that drop the snowflakes off each day at this supposed place of learning.
Not as much as you might think. You know when the teacher pops out through a door at the back of the classroom and comes back with a tray loaded with the chemicals and equipment needed for that days lesson and says "here's the experiment I've prepared for today."? Chances are it wasn't the teacher who prepared it. I've worked as a laboratory technician in 3 NZ Secondary schools, and it always amused me to hear them say "I've prepared". Did they not know I could hear every word from my lab on the other side of that little door? Mind you, I could hear every word the students said to the teacher, and I have to say I much preferred being on the other side of the little door. I had to completely redesign the chemical storage system at one (decile 10) school I went too, because the teachers had done it alphabetically and put the sodium next to the sulphuric acid, bless their little university educated hearts. Of course I was paid less than the classroom cleaner.aardvark_admin wrote:Don't they teach science teachers basic chemistry these days?
Oh you would be surprised at some of the things old schools have buried at the back of forgotten cupboards!goosemoose wrote:What I would like to know is why the school still has such dangerous items there.
