Halloween Day in Toronto

The school was decorated, the pumpkins carved and students and staff were dressed to scare on Halloween Day. There were witches and vampires, ghosts and ghouls, pirates and a cat burglar, and even a Donald Trump glad-handing.

Excitement was in the air as students explained their costumes and marveled at their teachers and staff. It was really interesting to see how this day’s activities prompted discussion united the school as one. The students took photos, congratulating each other for their characters, and sharing candies and stories.

What a fun way to practice their English skills!
There were great prizes, 20 minutes of jumping at the Sky Zone, chocolates and fun for everyone.

The winners of the Pumpkin Carving Contest came from Mandy’s CAE class and included Maria Alejandra and Ana Paula. They had the scariest pumpkin and the runner-up came from Jeong, Sayaka and Shinyoung.

At the parade of costumes, Maria Alejandra won the scariest costume award while Chihaya won the funniest. The most original and most eccentric awards were given out to many of our students dressed as Catrinas, unicorns, anime characters and pumpkin ghosts.  All I can say is that everyone had an exciting day and many went to celebrate Halloween at clubs and restaurants around the city.
