HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS 2012

The English Department planned a series of activities to celebrate Halloween this year. Spooky activities kicked off from 30th October 2012; beginning with a screening of the movie, “Scooby Doo”, which was played to a packed audience of students from the Junior form. It drew shrieks of horror, amidst squeals of delight from the audience. On 31st October, the covered playground in the school was abuzz with excitement and learning fun during lunch hour, as a Halloween booth was set up to thrill and chill the students. Students’ linguistic skills were put to the test when they had to recite spooky and creep tongue twisters, and unravel Halloween-themed riddles and cryptogram puzzles. For every tongue twister or riddle or puzzle unraveled, students earned stamps in their English passports, and candies. Eager students surrounded the booth like bees congregating around their bee hives, whilst the English Ambassadors, adorned with Halloween headgear and paraphernalia, encouraged even more students to join in the fun. In no time, queues of students were formed that snaked all the way to the middle of the covered playground; all ready to rattle off tongue twisters to the teachers at the booth.

Following this, the inaugural Amazing Pumpkin Race was held after school. It constituted an engaging and active way for students to enhance their language skills, as they were challenged to decipher clues which required them to look up the definition of unfamiliar words in a dictionary, and make sense of figurative use of language. Congregating at the ‘Spooky Base’ in the English Language Room, participants were briefed on rules of the race, before they dashed out and ran around the school compound, scouring for 14 pumpkins which were hidden in obscure places. Working in teams of 2-3, the participants searched very nook and cranny of the school, and left no stones unturned. The happy frenzy lasted for 30 minutes, with participants returning to the base to calculate the number of pumpkins found. The participants thoroughly enjoyed hunting out those elusive pumpkins, and it was certainly an exciting way to learn the English Language, and fun-filled way to culminate the week, before the start of the first Term Test.

本年度,英文科舉辦了一連串歡度萬聖節的活動。

迎接萬聖節的首輪活動是電影播放。在十月三十日,初中同學們欣賞外語電影─「狗狗震」。古怪又刺激的電影情節,使同學雀躍萬分。

次輪活動在十月三十一日的午膳時舉行。英文科在有蓋操場擺設萬聖節遊戲攤位,遊戲要求同學背誦萬聖節繞口令、拆解萬聖節謎語和拼圖,好讓同學一展語言天份。當同學完成其中一項遊戲,他們便會獲得糖果和圖章印記,以作鼓勵。為了增添節日氣氛和吸引同學參與,英語大使利用巫師帽、帚把等萬聖節道具裝飾攤位。攤位遊戲深受歡迎,吸引了長長的人龍。為了延續萬聖節的氣氛,英文科於放學後舉辦了別開生面的尋找南瓜大賽。在比賽中,各隊細心搜尋校園的每個角落,希望能夠找到隱藏在校園裏的十四個南瓜。經過緊張又刺激的三十分鐘比賽,參賽隊伍返回萬聖節大本營計算得分。由於同學在比賽中,需要從字典中查出生字的意思和恰當地運用比喻技巧來解開謎題,大大提高了同學的英語能力。同學既享受活動,又學習英語,實在一舉兩得。萬聖節活動就在這片歡樂聲中圓滿結束。
