The gym at St. Boniface school on Friday, October 30th at 1 :15 was a beehive of activity with students getting ready to walk down the runway for their Halloween fashion show.
But in the morning the JK / SK class of Joanna Mazza along with Laurie Zefferino DECE (Designated Early Childhood Educator) went next door to the Twin Oaks Nursing Home to visit the residents. The grade 1 / 2 class of Ms. Corinne Kennedy’s class also visited at the same time.
In the afternoon principal Jo Ann Giesler called all the classes down to the gym for the ever-popular fashion show and upon entering were greeted with music that are Halloween favourites. Emcees for this event were school council members Dani Egredzija and Grace Baillargeon.
This event is sponsored by the school council. It is always a big hit with parents and grandparents as well as with the students themselves. Costumes ranged from princess, pirates, skeletons, superheroes, clowns, witches, nerds, ghosts, elephant, Red Riding Hood, the world, bumble bee, basketball player, cupcake, cheerleader, jester, rubics cube, cat in the hat, hot dog and a mouse trap to name a few.
It is always great to see the older students dress up and they seem to enjoy the dressing up as much as the younger students.
Even the staff get in on the fun with a nurse, cowgirls, paper bag princess, a domino, fairy, spider, minion, tin man, a lady market vendor, Waldo from where is Waldo and Snow White.
There were prizes for the funniest, scariest and most original in the kindergarten, primary, junior and intermediate classes. Kindergarten winners were Brinley Zinger for scariest as Frankie from Monster High, Lukas Egredzija as funniest as fat Mario and most original was Logan Bajtos as a scuba diver. Primary winners were Gabe Doerr as scariest as the Grim Reaper, Iva Milardovic as a hot dog, and Spencer Miller as the World. Junior winners were Cameron Rebelo for scariest as a Zombie monster, Dani Egredzija as funniest in her hot mess costume and Claire Doerr as most original as a cupcake. For the Intermediate grade scariest was Jake McDonald as a monster, with Max the funniest dressed as a girl and most original went to Martina Olszewski as a deer and Skye Jones as an 80″s man. They both shared the prize.
Although some costumes were purchased many of the student preferred to do their own thing and came up with some very interesting outfits.
Only a very few students decided not to dress up and most of the staff also donned costumes which made for a very festive afternoon.
