Spooky Harroween was fully embraced across all phases (Early Years, Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior) at Harrow with all students and many staff including the Head Master in fancy dress.
What is Halloween? It is a holiday celebrated each year on 31st October. The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward of ghosts.
Throughout the day instead of the normal school bell the Senior Student Council decided to change the bell to a variety of different scary tunes which no doubt enhanced the concentration and learning throughout the day.
The Early Years were admired by our older students as they moved around the campus for PE, Library, swimming and music. Some of their younger siblings were also dressed up for Harrow Tots in the morning.
The Pre-Prep were treated to spooky stories in the library which was a highlight to their day.
The Prep School organised some wonderful and imaginative games at break time which have been developed during Extra-Curricular Activities sessions and arranged by the Prep Student Council. Mr Ellison thoroughly enjoyed all the activities.
The Senior School paraded their costumes in the sports hall led by Mr Thackery (Deputy Head) who didn’t really look like Mr Thackery!
Tonight the campus will be haunted with the Year 5 Fright Night Sleepover!!
