  • It's not banned everywhere. There are some schools that still allow it. All the private schools in Adelaide still had it up until last year. I think the pig's head that someone from Sacred Heart brought to school may have contributed to its banning.

  • An Aussie rite of passage (or milestone®©) involving pranks and other fun stuff perpetrated by graduating high school students. (According to wikipedia the term has spread to the UK on the back of such cultural icons as Neighbours and Home and Away. This alone strikes more fear into my heart than the average Muck Up Day.)

    It's officially banned nowadays, owing to the practice degenerating into rampant vandalism on the part of less imaginative cohorts. In Western Australia they tried to sanitise it by renaming it "Activity Day" – now that's just lame!!

    I recall (about 30 years ago now) my big sister spending a whole evening drawing red hearts on a roll of toilet paper, as did many others. Apparently a teacher's car was wrapped in this. I'm not willing to tell you what my school got up to. We were very nerdy.
