Sixth Formers find box of LEGO
A marginalised, underused, cobweb-ridden box of Technic LEGO was today brought back from the lurch.
The inconspicuous cardboard box was happened upon by a student while looking in a store room. Much delight and happiness ensued as the box was removed from the shelf upon which it had stood unmoved for some years. This childish jubilation was shared with classmates who quickly gathered round the box and began rummaging through the contents, creating the characteristic LEGO sound that everyone instantly recognises.
Bricks were drawn out and assembled together, accompanying comments such as “why did we not know about this?” and “Our Tech. lessons could have been so much funner!”.
“Why do we have this?” asked a student. “WHY WOULD WE NOT HAVE THIS?!” retorted another.
There is a feeling that now the LEGO is known about, the productivity of the Design and Technology Department shall plummet and indeed shatter, reminiscent of the dropping and smashing of a newly-built LEGO model by one the Sixth Formers, who proceeded to wail and gnash their teeth in distress.
The sounding of the bell did not deter the builders. Utilising the practical skills learned in their Technology lessons, not to mention the first decade of their lives in which hundreds of LEGO models were built, the students continued to click brick to brick. As one of them said: “Now I never want to go home because I have LEGO.”
It is now understood why the aforementioned storeroom has a sign reading “STAFF ONLY”.
