“Had S3 period 6 for the last 2 years…don’t know who least wants to do anything, them or me,” read one tweet.

“Have three Asperger’s boys in S1 class – never a dull moment! Always offer an interesting take on things,” read another. Argyll and Bute council have a policy of blocking all social networking sites in its schools.
