Enjoy re-reading Fr. John's weekly bulletin letters for the past year.
Graduations abound this time of year. Here's a reminder that education is supposed to teach you how to think. The student who took this test apparently learned how to think and quite humorously but not exactly as the teacher would have liked:
In which battle did Napoleon die?
His last one
Where was the Declaration of Independence signed?
At the bottom of the page
River Ravi flows in which state?
What is the main reason for divorce?
What is the main reason for exams?
What can you never eat for breakfast?
Lunch or Dinner
What looks like half an apple?
The other half
If you threw a red stone into the Blue Sea what would it become?
Simply a wet stone
How can a man go 8 days without sleeping?
Easy sleep at night
How can you lift an elephant with one hand?
You can never lift an elephant that has only one hand
If you had 3 apples and 4 oranges in one hand and 3 oranges and 4 apples in the other hand, what would you have?
Very large hands
If it took 8 men 10 hours to build a brick wall, how long would it take 4 men to build it?
No time at all, the wall was already built
How can you drop a raw egg on a concrete floor without cracking it?
Anyway you want because a concrete floor is very hard to crack
Did he answer the questions correctly? Well he didn't give the answers the teacher was looking to get. But then again he answered most of the questions correctly as written. You need to know something about the rules of grammar to understand that (verbs go with the nearest noun etc.). Still the teacher gave the student an F but an A for creativity. Somehow I think this kid will go far in life!
Let's keep all our graduates at any level in our prayers and challenge them to go out into the world and make a difference.
Let's also remember and thank all the teachers who helped form and shape the minds and hearts of our children.
