Till school do us part

A GROUP of teachers and students held a mass wedding in a school hall in the town of Prievidza to celebrate Valentine's Day.

But the vows only lasted till the end of school.

An entire class was married by a "wedding clerk" in a hastily arranged ceremony in the school hall as kids got used to the relatively new St Valentine's Day in their country.

Along with their teachers the kids split into pairs and declared their undying love for each other. They were married with the words: "You stand before me side by side and may no professor rend you asunder."
