I don't know about my first memory of school, but one of my most vivid memories of school was kidnapping (bearnapping?) a teacher's teddy bear mascot on a school camping trip. A friend and I decided that the group needed a bit of light entertainment so we removed Snowy from Greg's tent and spent the entire trip sending clever ransom notes. He never did work out it was us *giggle*
The other - we had a very strange substitute maths teacher for a term in Year 11 (second last year of school). My school was very laid back - left-wing, no uniform, which is unusual here in Australia, teachers known mostly by first names or nicknames, quite informal. This sub-teacher was the complete opposite - wore a suit and tie, carried a briefcase, and was also a very vocal, right-wing Born Again Christian. Needless to say, he *didn't* fit in very well at all. One afternoon, we had a bit of a rebellion, decided we weren't interested in doing work, and he tried to bribe us with snake jellies. Now... using sweeties might work on 6 year olds, but not on 16 year olds... I refused, saying I didn't eat them because I'm vegetarian (true). He asked how I could live with myself knowing that I insulted God on a daily basis by refusing to eat the animals put on this earth for me to eat. I don't believe in God, so told him so, and that it didn't bother me in the slightest. He laughed - very nasty laugh - gave a nasty little smirk, and told me that I was an idiot for not believing, but it didn't matter because I'd go to hell in the end anyway. What the... *blink*
