Earlier this week, we learned that Ja’mie King is returning to school for her last year before Uni. We are thrilled that Chris Lilley will reprise his role as the ever so bitch teenager who rules Hilford (and Summer Heights High). In order to prep for the new series, we thought it was important to review King’s glossary to not sounding povo because the last thing we would want to do is embarrass ourselves in front of her. (That would be so Bogan of us.)
