What says..

Miss Wright greets pupils with an enthusiastic: 'Hello class!' – in a tone so cheery it would put many a pantomime Buttons to shame. We note the tiniest sign of dismay as she stoops to pick up school bags that have fallen from their designated racking outside the classrooms: ‘The bags are a bit of a disaster.
