Pyjama Day!


teddy.jpg  At the last school council meeting, the councillors and the eco-warriors decided to hold a pyjama day at school as an alternative to their usual, fund-raising non-uniform day.

Surprisingly, I heard many of the parents moaning about this idea…

“It’s too cold.  Why don’t they just have their non-uniform day?”   Blah, blah….

Well as this was all thought up by the kids – all properly discussed and voted on at their meeting, I felt we should encourage and support them.  The children needn’t be cold.  They can wear their clothes underneath their P.J.’s (which they did).

Anyway, it was a  successful and fun day.  All the kids took part in great spirit and they even teased their teachers throughout the day by pretending to fall asleep or asking for their supper. 

I was a bit disappointed with the teachers efforts.  At non-uniform day when the kids wear their *civvies*, the teachers always take part by wearing a school uniform…some with pig-tails and painted freckles on their noses.  But only about three staff members wore their pyjama’s.  Maybe for adults, there’s something a bit too personal about our night attire (or lack of 😉 )

    In the spirit of raising funds for a good cause I’m so surprised that only 3 teachers would participate. What a shame. They needn’t worry about silly things about their sleepwear. It’s in “The Spirit” of helping someone else out..It’s a great idea and almost certain they won’t try it again..They haven’t heard of yoga pants or appropriate lounge wear..

    I would have *loved* to have done that at school! Mind you, I wore a nightie at that age and wouldn’t have shown my white, spindly legs. I’d have worn several pairs of tights!

  3. “White spindly legs” Lol. Some things never change huh?

    BB, I know. I was disappointed..and surprised because they are a great bunch of teachers and they usually get involved with such activities.
