It’s a Halloween hoe-down at TCS!

It was a dark and stormy day, but that couldn’t keep spirits down as Trinity College School students and staff celebrated Halloween on Thursday, October 31st, complete with a morning dance challenge!

As Senior School students took part in morning chapel service, decked out in their finest costumes, it was just the antidote to the gloomy weather, and students cheered enthusiastically for the costume contest and jack-o-lantern competition. Among this year’s favourite looks were: Oreos, garden gnomes, spices, aliens, doctors, tourists and the cast of Scooby-Doo.

As a special surprise, music filled the chapel and everyone was treated a staff performance of the viral sensation The Git Up by Blanco Brown. Teachers and members of several different staff departments filled the aisles to perform country line dancing moves they had been secretly practicing for days!

Over in the Junior School, our younger students were thrilled to show off their costumes during Halloween assembly. Lots of students chose to dress up in group costumes this year, from crayons to M&Ms!

The rest of the day, students had plenty of opportunity to stay in the holiday mood, with lunch featuring “chicken digits and anti-vampire leaves” and “baby snakes with cow eyeballs” (chicken fingers with Caesar salad and spaghetti with meatballs). And the prefects had planned a spooky film to be shown in Cirne Commons in the evening.

For one group, Halloween was a time to give back, as Trinity Students for Social Justice and faculty member Campbell Hall organized a food drive. TSSJ volunteers planned to “trick or treat” in the local neighbourhood to collect non-perishable food items, while students and staff were able to donate to the cause directly here at school.
