I escort fourteen boys and 12 girls to the toilet at the National Library, shh-ing all the way as they leap and prance their way there.
And this is my conclusion: It’s slightly easier bringing eight-year-olds out for a school outing than pre-schoolers.
But only slightly. Because they can feed, pee and poo themselves.
But otherwise, there's still a lot of running, jumping, shouting.
On Day’s recent school excursion to the National Library, the teacher sighs: We HATE bringing them out. It’s very stressful.
The poor pregnant librarian who has to show them around the reference library to demonstrate the microfiche thingy looks to me in panic as the lift doors close on her and 15 boys: Can you please come up with me?

The kids, however, have the time of their lives.
