It's "wear what you like" day, on the last day of term, and an outside prize-giving fête has been organized. Mauler is concentrating on how to get revenge on Ziggy for being soaked. It's Ziggy's last day before his family moves back to Liverpool. Calley makes it clear to Robbie that it is him she likes, and not Vince. Ziggy, Robbie and Gonch use the face painting idea that is accompanying festivities as a way to confuse Mauler and his troops. The teachers dress up too - Mr. Bronson and Mr. Griffiths in colonial outfits, Mrs. McClusky in her Little Bo Peep outfit (once again) and Laura is shocked to see her mother in a cheerleader costume. Mrs. Reagan is waylaid by Matthew's mother, who's just been through an acrimonious ordeal at court: her estranged husband has not taken Mrs. Pearson's victory to look after her son with good grace. Outside, Fred is awarded his "Poser" award, created by Helen and Georgina. As Fred gives his acceptance speech, Mr. Griffiths notices a thieving arm grab ... Written by Geffers
