One year, just as the school year was finishing, and it was that last week of school where all the reports are done, there's no more work and there's nothing left to do.

We'd already packed up the tables and stacked the chairs in the corner of the classrooms and gone into the presentation space to chill for the last couple of hours before we could go home for the Summer holidays.

With nothing else to do; the teachers decided to put on a movie. That movie was Shrek.

So with the entire year level in the one room, (about two hundred kids) we started watching Shrek.

I kid you not, every single student in that room quoted the entire movie from start to finish, including the musical numbers.

Now, Shrek is one of those movies that everyone knows all the lines from, but I'd never seen anything like this before. Two hundred kids quoted the entire movie, no one complained, we just went along with it.

We didn't miss a single line, songs and all. It was truly one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
