Scary monsters wandering on the hallways… You can feel the horror every place you go…
Yes, the scariest time of the year was here again! I mean Halloween, of course. It arrived to our school on the last day of October. You could even see it on the walls. Bats, spiders and pumpkins adorned the walls and I saw a skeleton in the canteen. The whole day was truly fun! In the first two lessons we were hardworking students like all high school pupils are. After that the fun began! We all went to the gym hall. There was music playing and they offered juice. Everybody was in a good mood.
Like last year, we had the sports day and Halloween put together. This year the sports were volleyball and floorball.
At first, it was time to play volleyball. On another field played 1A, 2A and 3A against each other and 3A won. 1B, 2B and 3B played on another field. Although the games were really intense and everybody played well, eventually 3B won.
So in the final there were the third graders playing against each other. It was a rough game. The teams were very equal but after a tough final 3B won the tournament.
After the volleyball tournament it was time to play floorball. The teams were the first class, the second class and the third class. The games were equal and tough. The first and the third classes made their way to the final. Many thought that the first graders would win because they had beaten the third class in the first round overwhelmingly. But it didn’t happen again. The third graders gathered up themselves and won the tournament.
The day was fun and the tournaments weren’t too serious. The games were fun to watch and there were fun and cheerful vibes. After the tournaments it was time to clean the gym hall and go home.
One of the main things in Halloween is the costumes (or at least I think so). And boy there were really many great outfits in our school this year! I’m not sure if it’s just my point of view, but I think that in the junior high school the pupils don’t really put an effort on their costumes if they even are wearing anything special. Maybe they feel that it’s stupid and so uncool. But that’s not how it is in the senior high school! You can really see that these students have put a thought on their costumes. I don’t even understand how can they get such amazing ideas for their costumes but they really are fine for sure!
I have always thought that in Halloween you are supposed to look really scary but I don’t think so anymore! There were great non-scary costumes like the SpongeBob SquarePants and a smurf. They looked really cute and even though they weren’t scary they fitted in just fine among all the zombies that I saw.
Every class had their own color code which you could notice in their outfits. The first graders wore green, second graders had red and the seniors were wearing blue.
So this is what Halloween looks like in F. E. Sillanpää’s high school. I hope that it will be as fun next year!
