An SMS prank for April’s Fool Day… too far?

If you are a parent and you receive circa 2.30am an SMS like this one from your kids’ school… what would you do?

SMS April's fool

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, over one thousand parents of Castle Hill High School students received an SMS saying the school had burnt down… but apparently it was all an April’s Fool day PRANK!

According to the SMH, “the NSW Department of Education and Communities said it was reporting the incident to police after discovering that an unknown person had “inappropriately accessed” the school’s IT system and sent hundreds of inaccurate text messages to students’ parents.”

Twitter, on the other side of the spectrum, took a liking to the prank!
