    Exactly... take so much effort to climb.. might as well take off shoe n sock.. and walk right thru...
    Pretty sure at least a couple would have a car on the outside waiting for them... :x

    I wonder why they don't want to take off their shoes and wade through? Is it because that they are scared of being scolded by the teachers if they arrived wet? Or is it because they simply don't think to have fun first?

    That's more worrying to me as it shows what kind of state our next generation is in...

    perhaps their idea of fun just simply does not include wading through flood waters. or climbing is more fun than walking in water. its just a picture, think we are over analysing it.

    Perhaps these kids find it more fun to cross using the fence, like cliffhanger or Tomb Raider style.... haha....

    No no no... wading through water was never fun in the first place. However, running through puddle of water while passing some (fierce) teachers confirm fun.

    Can practice writing "I shall not splash mr./mrs. this and that" x 1000. Oh the nostalgic feeling.
