Hi, I too was a very studious student in my school days. So I would never want to skip any class. But our physical education teacher used to torture us ,so whenever I got a chance I used to skip her class. In my postgraduation I didnot mind skipping the classes some boring lectures.

hello shantha, i always thought physical education is the easiest in school. anyways, am sure the teacher was not well loved by the students because of his ways. i too didnt like one subject. i didnt skip though but i always wanted to be so far away from the teacher hence i stay at the back of the classroom. thank you for sharing. ann

I was in grade 6 when a friend convinced me to skip of one afternoon. It worked and it seemed we got off with it. The next day someone else wanted to do it and I decided to as well. Well, someone noticed and we were told on. For some reason I ended up getting blamed for it all and gave the guy who said it was me a bloody nose. I didn't skip off school for a few years after that but I never did get in any trouble with my parents.

i am smiling here. i have the same experience as u had. i skipped classes too and went to swim in the river and had fun riding on a carabao's back. sometimes, we go to the woods and pick ripe guavas and other fruits. now, when we have reunions with those classmates, we reminisce those times we were having fun and the tiny naughtiness we did.

Hi ann, I would have a very good record of attendance for junior, and senior school. However, you did remind me of an eventful experience from my grade three days. My cousin and I were in the same class, and derived a scheme where we could take an afternoon off, and play football. We wrote letters from each other's mothers, signed them and handed them to our teacher, Mrs Murray, who incidently was a friend of our parents. We planned to tell our mothers we were so good in class, that Mrs Murray let us go home at lunch time. Well, as we cornered the school block to head for the gate, thinking we had fooled Mrs Murray, there were our mothers, waiting to scold us. However, as Mrs Murray followed us from behind, I think there was more laughter from the three women, than serious talk.

Never skipped classes in elementary school. And, it wouldn't have worked in high school. I was homeschooled during my high school years, so my mom would have easily been able to tell I wasn't "in class." I never skipped class until college, and even then, it was very rarely.
