That’ll teach them! Hilarious signs spotted in schools won’t fail to capture students’ attention
Teachers certainly have a challenge on their hands imparting knowledge, keeping the class under control and – often the trickiest task of all – getting and holding their students’ attention.
Luckily some creative minds have found a way to ensure their pupils sit up and listen, as these hilarious school signs and notices from around the world, collated in a gallery by Bored Panda, prove.
In one witty notice involving a play on words, a teacher advised eager learners who want their course work looked at in a hurry to consult their ’emergency reader Helen Wait’, adding ‘Got to Helen Wait’.
Elsewhere, a sympathetic teacher showed exactly how much they understand that back-to-school feeling, likening it to returning to a chaotic video game that you’ve had on pause.
