My daughter was taken away by the nurse just before she fainted.

I love it, the video, not the faintness of dinacat's DD.

That's really sad Dinahcat, hope she's recovered now.

Apparently they were all doing a Mexican Wave to the horror of the Deputy Head :D

Hope your daughter is fine now, dinahcat.

Another who loved the video - I'm sure I saw someone levitate to the top step! Did anyone achieve the classic of appearing at both ends of the photo?

It reminded me of one of those lovely wild-life films of penguins.

My kids (current) school (2000ish on roll) did theirs a couple of years ago - had to photoshop yr 11 as school too big for bleachers. MIGHT have worked except when they did the bulk of the school it was TORRENTIAL rain (kids out in it for well over an hour) so 3/4 of the school like drowned rats and those photoshopped on to the top row were photographed with pristine hair and smiles from their nice sunny shot taken in the afternoon - results are ....well, interesting

The music sounds like one of Candi Bowtell`s pieces.... brilliant percussionist!

Did I spy someone`s son in the close-ups?

Not really to do with the photo but as wickedwitch has mentioned the Heads Knees and Toes video , the Peele Fesival has apparently surpassed itself this year with the Cha Cha Slide. I do hope I have the name correct or I will truly appear as old as I feel ..It is complete with the band and Mr Whittingham participating- very funny by all accounts. I hope we can see it soon.
