Our normal school timetable is four 75min periods a day, except on Monday where there is 5, with period 3 and 4 being 40 min each. Seeing that 3 and 4 is always the same subject, I have no idea why it couldn't just been a normal 4 period day.

Thursday's we finish early, as P4 is only 40 minutes long.

Oh and being seniors, if we're doing 12 units, we have minimum 2 period 0's a week. They start at 7.45am! So somedays I have five 75min lessons....

Whoever, said something about number of students and loss classes, yeah it works like that at our school too. If we go under 10 students we lose a timetabled lesson, though most teachers schedule an extra lesson to make up for it - it's just during lunch or something. Oh and we do Week A/Week B

SDD - 6
IPT - 15
ITV - 8
EES - 9
2U Maths - about 15 maybe
ADV Eng - in the whole grade maybe around 45

depends on the teacher. but we're allowed to come late! some don't even turn up and they don't get into trouble. i normally come 10-15 minutes late coz everyone else does. but with 4u, i try to make it on time since there's only two people in our class and the other guy always comes on time.

I go to a senior school, just year 11 and 12 so they are really flexable with our timetable so we can fit all our ext classes in our timetable. Is anyone else like this? I dont think i could stand going to a school with little yr 9 people flirting and yr 7's throwing fruit etc

i go to an all girls school, and i HATE the younger years at my school... yeh 7 are all sweet and innocent at the start, but they are mostly bigger than me... hehe...... year 8 start getting all smart arsey..... year nine is THE worst year ever!!!! i hate them sooo much!!! they think they rule the school....... and this is the year that folders are thought to be "cool" so nearly everyone in year 9 has one, with just a sheet of paper in it ( you see the only thing that matters is that they have the folder) year 10 people start to get together and be friends, so they arnt too bad.... year 11 think the rule cause they have a new uniform and everything, and they actually have a purpose for their folders... and year 12.... well what can i say..... we are cool.... hahaha nah only kidding!!! :)

in my case, their introduction to make up, sense of fashion and interpretation of the school uniform make them a prettier sight :p

I feel sorry for the poor people that do Ext 2 English, on a bad day they have triple English going for them.

I do 12 units, but I still get frees, cause Ext 1 English runs after school every monday for 2 hours.


Trust me, its not a good way to spend a monday.
Sunny I don't want to get all pedantic, but our periods are actually 75 minutes long :) cos they included that 10 minute roll-call period a few years ago.

I do English Extension 2, you don't have to feel sorry for me, it's like my favourite subject. Over half the time you don't even have to go to class, so I usually get another free period :). And there's almost no work to speak of usually, except when there are assessments.

So even though I do 12 units, I still get 2 free periods a week (usually), cos I do English Extension 1 (like you) and English Extension 2. :D

And your right, I REALLY HATE MONDAYS...
But it's good on the first week back, cos we come to school on Tuesday. Hooray! No staying after school for 2 hours!
