Among the many derisory terms we can safely employ in the presence of students, Donkey is one of my favourites. It was also quite popular amongst the staff in general at my last school, resulting in calls from teachers in IT rooms that would begin “I’ve got some donkey in my class who’s forgotten his password.”


This donkey was a leaving gift from MrsRobinson and her staff. It was “to remind you of all the donkeys you’re leaving behind.”

Donkey does not yet have a name. Suggestions?

    Not a suggestion, but Mrs Crust once had a toy monkey given to her – much the same way as you acquired your donkey.

    I christened it “Spank” – it was *years* before she cottoned on. :-)
