HALLOWEEN IN OUR SCHOOL

Happy Halloween from students and teachers!!!!!! 
Last week we celebrated Halloween, a tradition that originated from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The children celebrated by dressing up in their scariest costumes- witches, ghosts and vampires!


During the previous days we learnt about how people celebrate Halloween in the USA. Our language assistant Heather showed us some pictures and some videos about it. 

Our students and families carved scary pumpkins to decorate the school. They were amazing!


On October 31 our youngest students went to the library and there they listened to scary stories and danced with some Halloween songs. It was really fun!
