Student kavuyo from way before my time (Photo from http://www.kingscollections.org)
DO you remember, back in the day, a concept called “Term Eggenda” (pronounced ’Tamweggenda’)?
In my primary school days it referred to the very last day or night of the school term. It was a terrible time for some, and a terrific time for others.
That last day was euphoric, hysterical, and irrational just because the term was ending and everybody was going home – some for good, since they were changing schools or school levels or had been expelled, and others just for the break.
But that break, in those days, was long and disruptive for many reasons – since many of us left school and went long distances to our homes. Besides, we had neither phones (not even landlines, most of us) nor email, and were basically incommunicado till we got back during the next term.
