PostTask of the week - Back to School - Winners (and losers) Page 33

Good afternoon pupils and welcome to this assembly of the GRcade School. As you have all noticed over the last week, we have been subject to inspection by OFSTED and I am afraid to tell you that the results were not good.

Unruly pupils.

Poor exam results.

Useless teachers.


The only positive was that you all have a fantastic headmaster and that barely cost me anything in bribes to the inspector…

Now, this sort of result makes us all look bad and we do not have much time to turn things around. OFSTED will be back in the coming weeks and they will be shutting us down if results are not improved. They have therefore given me special powers to sort you all out and show that this school can produce decent human beings. A series of tests will be set to find out the most capable amongst you and the top pupils will be selected to face the might of OFSTED in our finals week.

For the next 6 weeks I will be taking your lessons and we will be concentrating on one lesson per week. I will give you the whole of the week to produce your coursework, failure to do so will result in punishment, success will gain you rewards. We will have the odd special event to boost morale and to boost your standings in the eyes of this establishment.

Each of you have been sorted into school houses and we will use each one as a league table with each house also being judged on competence.

At the end of the 6 week period, every member of the top house will automatically qualify to face the OFSTED testing. Please note that this will only count if the pupil has a positive points score, any of the members of the top house with negative points will be expelled.

The top pupil from each of the other houses will also qualify to face OFSTED.

Everyone else will be expelled and will not be allowed to take part in the exams.

Each lesson will be scored as follows:

Failure to complete: -5 points

Successful completion: 10 points

Top 3 pupils: 5 bonus points

On top, there may be bonus points to be gained for yourself and your house in the social events that will be taking place.

The points you score will be added both to your total and to your house total.


Now with such high stakes there will be a temptation amongst you to cheat and to copy from others. If I find out that anybody is cheating, they will be suspended for 1 week and will face a 5 point deduction. This point deduction will also be made against their house, it is therefore in your interest to keep your housemates on the straight and narrow, as well as being in your interest to keep your eye on the pupils from other houses. Get caught cheating again and you will be expelled with a 10 point deduction taken from your house.

Submission of your weeks work must be presented both to the school as a whole (posted in the thread) and privately to myself (via a PM). The submission must arrive before the stated deadline and follow any special criteria that is set. If you do not submit properly then your work will not be marked and you will be marked as a failure for the week. Only one submission is allowable, editing or resubmitting will result in failure, check your work before you submit!

The markings will be carried out by myself and I will not be releasing the results other than those of the top three pupils. Marks will be out of 100 and will be posted (again only for the top 3) as a percentage. There are no appeals and my ruling is final.

Finally on the work front, this school needs publicity desperately. For too long we have relied on the same old faces producing children for us to educate. Therefore there will be a task set for you all to gain some publicity for the school as well as gaining yourself and your house bonus points.

The bonus megatask points will be awarded as follows:

10 points if you get “GRcade” mentioned in a local newspaper (this must be in print, not online) or on local TV. Evidence of this must be produced.

20 points if you get “GRcade” mentioned in a national newspaper (again in print, not online) or on national TV. Evidence of this must be produced.

If you get "GRcade" in international print or TV then you will get 30 points. For the purposes of the game all the countries of the U.K. and also New Zealand count as national only, no international bonus will be given for making the news in Wellington NZ or Dundee Scotland, even if you are in England.

How you go about the megatask is up to you and you have the whole of the duration of this term in which to do it.

Other rules, punishments and changes are subject to my whim and detention will be the punishment for anybody that questions the authority of the headmaster.

Now is the time for you to all get to know each other and ask any questions that you might have. Your first weekly lesson will start on Sunday.

And remember, no running in the corridors and stay off of the school field if it has been raining.

After all of that I am sure you are all wondering about the important point of which house you are in.

The houses of the school are:

House Baer – This is the oldest of our houses and is a venerable institution that is respected by all.

House Carmack – This house is home to some of the most intelligent of our pupils but they do have a tendency to be found wandering the corridors with strange looks on their faces.

House Minter – This house was founded with the aim of SPACE MUTANT CAMELS LLAMAS!!1!!!

House Miyamoto – This house was founded with the aim of providing a safe place for pupils to have fun.

House Molyneux – This house was once popular and respectable but has sadly turned into a shadow of its former self due to pupil exaggeration and the outright lies that tend to come from this house.

House Suzuki – This house was fast and high octane until a sudden slow down occurred and the house became more obsessed with menial day to day tasks.

The pupils have been sorted into the houses as follows:

House Baer

Dowbocop
Errkal
Hyperion
Karl
Rightey

House Carmack

Banjo
Corazon de Leon
Falsey
Kezzer
Somebody Else's Problem

House Minter

Albear
Diabolito
Ironhide
Joer
Zartan

House Miyamoto

1cmanny1
Ario
LewisD - School President
mcjihge2
Qikz

House Molyneux

OrangeRakoon
Rax
Slayerx
Tafdolphin
Tragic Magic

House Suzuki

Cribs
Dan.
Irene Demova
Red
Super Dragon 64


Final pupil standings:

Diabolito 90
Dan. 90
Dowbocop 85
Rax 75
LewisD 65
Hyperion 60
Errkal 55
Tragic Magic 50
Ironhide 40
Joer 35
Rightey 35
Ario 25
Karl 15
Slayerx 5
Albear 0
1cmanny1 0
Somebody Else's Problem -5

All pupils with negative points (shown in red) have been expelled.

Final House standings:

House Baer: 250
House Minter: 150
House Miyamoto: 50
House Molyneux: 70
House Suzuki: 10
House: Carmack: -110


HOUSE BAER IS THE WINNING HOUSE.

All members of house Baer qualify for the final task. Congratulations to Dowbocop, Hyperion, Errkal, Rightey and Karl.

The highest scoring members of the other houses also qualify for the final. Congratulations to Diabolito, LewisD, Rax and Dan..

As House Carmack did not have any pupils with a positive score, they will not carry anybody into finals week. In their place will be the next highest pupil overall. Congratulations to Tragic Magic.

All other pupils have been expelled.

Boy, it is attitudes like yours that led to the disastrous OFSTED ratings. One more outburst like that and you will be banned from the school disco.

I may have already succeeded in the bonus megatask for ten points as a very good start for House Minter. Gonna try and get some evidence of it, with any luck it'll be here within the next ten minutes.

Your obvious attempt at cheating has been discussed by myself and the school governers. We will be lenient this time and not punish you but any repeat of this will see you suspended.
