#BBCtrending: Why are teachers busting a move?

Teachers are normally figures of authority and responsibility, but when senior students leave school they get a chance to show a different side.

For students, the end of school means lots of things: exams, results, impending freedom and saying farewell. And for teachers in the UK and around the world, a popular way to say goodbye to school leavers is to make a video and post it on social media.
