  Why do kids bunk school?
Updated 29 April 2002, 15.33

Kids who skip school are in for a shock.

The Government's cracking down on pupils who bunk off because they think truants cause a lot of problems in schools.

Have you ever skipped class? Did you get away with it or were you caught? Are you at home right now?

What do you think about bunking off?
