After two years of having to postpone the popular annual event due to COVID safety restrictions, students were thrilled to finally dress up and dance, under the “spooky” theme.
A bubbling cauldron, giant spiders and more created a memorable backdrop for face painting, hair spray, crazy tattoos, photo sessions and dance moves to remember.
“It was good,” said Oscar of Year 5. “The activities that were organised were very fun and there was great food, with hot dogs, watermelon and grapes.”
Jerry said he particularly enjoyed the tattoos, hairspray, face paint and photos.
Aaliyah said her mother was one of the volunteers. “I got to dance with her a lot,” she said.
Another student said the Hall wasn’t even recognisable after the volunteers had finished with it, with one half set aside for activities and the other for dancing.
Aaliyah said the props included a giant cauldron, mannequins wrapped in toilet paper to look like Egyptian mummies.
The top hit of the afternoon was Rick Astley’s 2009 song Never Going to Give You Up.
“Everyone in the Hall sang along.”
