First day back at Broadmeadows primary school


Doing a rollcall on the first day back at school at Broadmeadows Primary, the teacher began calling out the names of the pupils:

“Mustafa El Ekh Zeri?” “Here.”
“Achmed El Kabul?” “Here.”
“Fatima Al Chadoury? ” ” Here.”
“Abdul Alu Ohlmi?” ” Here.”
Mohammed Ibn Achrha?” ” Here.”
“Mi Cha El Mey Er”
Silence in the classroom.
“Mi Cha El Mey Er”
Continued silence as everyone looked around the room. She repeated, “Is there any child here called Mi Cha El Mey Er”
A boy arose and said, “Sorry teacher. I think that’s me. My name is Michael Meyer.”
