RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

My English Teacher....again...

Yeah I know, I complain about her a lot. But today was funny.

She gave us homework to do on the public holiday - to plan our essay SAC for tomorrow. She never really told us how to plan or rather...how to show her that we planned it, so I just wrote down a few lines and read some information.
Apparently this wasn't enough for her. So the majority of the class didn't do it and the ones that did do it didn't do much either.
So we got a detention...lol?

After detention I go with my mates and meet up with some Year 12's to chill out and play soccer. Some kid kicks it on the roof so he goes to get the ball. The teacher (same one I just had detention with) came but couldn't see who it was, we told the guy to hide. Usually this isn't a big deal since this happens a lot. But she thought it was me for some reason?! I told her it wasn't me as I just came out of detention and I couldn't have had the time to go on the roof (roof walking is a sin!), so she told me to say who it was.

Teacher: Efs, I know you know who it is, now tell me.
Efs: I don't know who it was, I just came here.

I have this thing where I can NEVER snitch on anyone, whether it be a sibling, a friend or even a random guy. I don't want them getting in trouble.
Now this teacher is "keeping a tab on me" and everyone knows this teacher doesn't like me for some reason. Eventually she left and we starting bagging her in Greek whilst some Australians were casually trying to understand lol
Usually I don't care about what teachers think of me except this bitch is going to make me fail Unit 1 English. I can fail one unit, but that's it, I have to pass the last 3.
So yes, I can fail. But I'd rather pass and keep my one unit fail as safety in case I fail in the future.

But the funniest moment was when she called my name, this kid 17 year old kid from Greece says (though in Greek) "Hey wanker what's this bitch want?" lol he had the best accent.

School would be so shit if it wasn't for the funny kids.
