Today is Halloween. Halloween happens every year on 31st October. Some countries celebrate it and some don’t. It is a bit of a strange thing to celebrate because it is dedicated to remembering the dead (well, according to Wikipedia). People dress up as ghosts, witches, zombies and lots of other things. People go ‘Trick or Treating’ in the evenings; door knocking and collecting treats. Sometimes people play tricks on people if there are no treats.
We had a Halloween – a – thon at school today. We dressed up, completed an obstacle course and had a sausage sizzle organised by our Family and Friends Group. We could get sponsors to sponsor each lap of the obstacle course and raise money for our school. The amazing thing is that we also get a prize if we raise lots of money. It’s a win, win!
We’d like to thank the Family and Friends group for organising such a fun filled day.
