We’ll save the worst food for the rude kids.
We do have kids who are our favourites.
We love a bit of eye candy – we’ll all stare at the handsome teachers.
The worst thing about the job is when the kids are sick.

There are no more turkey twizzlers.
The most popular meal is spaghetti bolognese.
And everyone loves the roast on Wednesdays.
The worst meal is five-bean chilli.
