Teacher's fate is sealed at Harlaxton school's Egyptian day
A schoolteacher at a village school met a grizzly fate when his pupils dressed up as Egyptians for the day.
Youngsters in Years 3 and 4 at Harlaxton Primary School swapped their uniforms for robes last Monday as part of their Egyptian topic this term.
They were each given a role including scribes and clay makers and took part in a variety of workshops throughout the morning before they performed to the Pharaoh in the afternoon.
Pupils given the roles as slaves handed out buffet food throughout each performance.
If the Pharaoh liked the performance, they were allowed to live but if he didn’t, they had their heads chopped off!
Rumours and gossip about who had poisoned the Pharaoh were rife throughout the day until it was revealed that class teacher Mr Rowe was found to be responsible and he was taken away.
Before his quick demise, Mr Rowe managed a few words to the Journal. He said: “ Everyone really enjoyed themselves and embraced the day.”
