Remember the days of the old school yard? We used to laugh a lot. Also we used to pick up rubbish and try not to flash our undies.

Here’s a bunch of memorable primary school rituals for your sentimental pleasure!

"Our teachers would send the whole primary block out on an emu parade. Which basically means yes, picking up papers. BUT WE ACTED LIKE EMUS!" Babyology writer Lexi says. It took her years to de-emu herself and to this day she shudders if she catches sight of anything feathery or peck-y. Perhaps you can relate?
