    This sounds highly inappropriate.

    Never seen it or heard of it. I don't necessarily think it's weird but definitely inappropriate. What if a kid didn't want to? Very hard to say no to a teacher.

    That doesn't sit right with me... it seems innaproriate and very unprofessional of the teacher. If it was a boss asking an employee for a massage that would be frowned upon and a beach of HR policies. I think the fact that it's children makes it even more innaproriate.

    I know if a teacher asked me to massage them when I was a kid I wouldn't have wanted to, but would have felt too scared to say no.

    I'd be talking to the school about it.

    How odd!

    I can remember having a lesson in yr 5 where all of the girls were asked to do various things like lean backwards and let someone standing behind catch you, shoulder massages etc.
    I can't remember the specifics about the reason for doing it, but I do know there was a purpose. There was a big bullying issue amongst our grade that year, so I assume it was something to do with that.

    Anyway, I remember feeling uncomfortable taking part in that and there was a reason for it... What could possibly be the reason for students giving the teacher a massage?!

    I am training to be a teacher and we are told strictly no physical contact. I think massage would be way way out of line, could get into all sorts of trouble for that. It's up to the teacher to say no, that's not appropriate.

    Not on. There is a teacher at my kids school who used to get the kids to massage her feet. I have a relative who had kids at the school before mine were, parents complained about it, nothing was done.

    There was a female primary school teacher back in my day who would ask for one of us students to volunteer to massage her shoulders whilst she read us a story. This would have been 10/11 year old children. I never volunteered!

    I don't think it's appropriate at all, male or female teacher.

    I also had a male teacher (whom I did not like at all) when I was in year 3 and I remember he insisted everyone in the class give him individual hugs on his birthday. He was insistent I hug him too but I outright refused. I just felt even at that young age that something was 'off' about him. He also physically forced me to remove my parka one day too. I could go on...he really was a creep.
