A Sunny Day Of Spring
Oh, Look! See there, a daffodil,

After this week there will only

pupils at school every day possible.
Sickness is the only legal excuse
and we trust that patrons will think
twice before keeping children out
for any other reason. The summing

be as thorough as others and1 if
their seats are vacant, what can
the teachers do?
