Halloween took over the hallowed halls of all three campuses this week, as students and staff donned costumes, carved pumpkins and enjoyed a few treats. This year, students outdid themselves with many original and well-crafted costumes, and staff certainly met their mark as well.
The festivities began on the weekend, with the Senior School Dance on Friday night taking on a frightening holiday theme. Sunday, all the boarders got a chance to carve pumpkins and the night before Halloween, the Grade 11 and 12 boarders traveled to a haunted house.
Junior School began to get into the spirit with the Grade 2 students carving pumpkins and making caramel apples. The Grade 5 students created a haunted house for the Grade 3 and Grade 4 students, and led everyone in a Halloween song. All the classes took part in their own classroom festivities as well as a massive costume parade.
The Middle School students held their annual costume parade through campus early Wednesday morning. Everyone from pink ladies to grim reapers was excited to show off their hard work before heading back to class.
The boarders enjoyed some special treats with their daily snacks, including scary-delicious cupcakes. Some brave boarders kept their costumes on for dinner in Brown Hall, where prizes were awarded before they headed off for fun and games.
