Prize day

Our local primary gives prizes for “hygiene” and discipline as well as academic achievement. Hygiene would more accurately be described as smartness, or standard of uniform. The academic prizes are jotters and pencils : the hygiene prize was a plastic basin. Of course it is not so strange as it might first appear. It is likely that the children leaving p6 will end up at boarding school and will have to provide their own basins.
