The parents did a wonderful job in organising and decorating for the Halloween party this year, continuing a lovely tradition at Asker International School. They had to think differently this year and come up with a new solution due to the number of students, so they re-structured Halloween celebrations into an upper school and lower school event.
Grade 6 also did a great job running the haunted house for the younger students, many of whom ran up to me (the principal, or Mr. Halloween as some kids called me at the party) to tell me that the haunted house was exciting, or scary, or funny!
I would like to congratulate the parents. The volunteers were diligent, spending evenings in preparation before the event and hours on the day. Any time I saw them, they were decorating, preparing, inspecting, supervising or some other task.
So Happy Halloween! (a bit early, but never mind) and congratulations again to the grade 6 parents and the grade 1 parents (and any other contributor). They should take stock of the successes and take note of the challenges so next year's group can benefit from their preparation.
