Comedy Fundraiser at SKIPPS

ST Kilda Comedy Club A3 FA2

Q. How many parents does it take to make a school joke book?

A. Far too many, that’s why no one’s ever done it before!

 ‘Who Wants To Hear A Joke?’ Asks Neil Scott the SKIPPS school Principle.

These are the six words that are guaranteed to turn our Friday morning school assemblies into a screaming, seething pit of calling out, laughing and other behaviours not generally condoned in a primary school. This Friday assembly tradition is a great example of the SKIPPS culture. Make school fun and they will come.

“Me, Me, Me”, they call out enthusiastically and the jokes go a little something like this:

Why did the bubblegum cross the road?

Because it was stuck to the chicken’s foot.

Gus. 5 years old

Why was 6 afraid of 7?

Because 7, 8, 9.

Carolina. 6 years old

Over 200 pages of Kids and teachers Jokes and thanks to the generosity of the parents and local community we were able to produce this very special book. Jam packed with celebrity contributors including:
