Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble- William Shakespeare

Halloween is a festival observed in various parts of the world on 31 October every year. The popular Halloween holiday has its roots in ancient European traditions where people lit bonfires and dressed up as ghosts and witches to ward off evil spirits.

Ancient people believed that ghosts came back to Earth on Halloween. Celebrating Halloween is about celebrating global citizenship. It encourages students to appreciate differences in cultures and customs and also makes them aware of global festivals. Celebrating international festivals helps in fostering brotherhood and discouraging racism. Such festivals also help in keeping old traditions alive.

In the same festive spirit, the Pre Primary department of The Indian School geared up to celebrate this international festival. The students along with their teachers decorated the Second Reception area with spooky yet extraordinary handmade crafts like mosaic Jack-O-Lanterns, paper bats, witches and monsters! They listened in awe and curiosity to tales of Halloween.

The event started with a fun filled and exciting fancy dress pageant by the Preschoolers who came dressed as ghosts, witches, Dracula, skeletons, vampires, Halloween cats and monsters. They sang Halloween songs like ‘Knock knock, I am a little pumpkin’, ‘ Zoom zoom zoom we are riding on a broom’, ‘I am a little worry monster’, ‘Hello ghost, witches and goblins, Halloween is here’ and many more.

This was followed by the Pre schoolers making pumpkins with apples (fruit block printing).

The celebration concluded with a startling Zombie dance performance and the young dancers surprised everyone with their creative moves.
