If there’s anything that Halloween spirit never fails to incite, it is – creativity and spookiness!
This year, as every year, Allison students have shown us no shortage of ideas when it comes to incredibly quirky and horrific costumes. Halloween is one of the most eagerly anticipated holidays at Allison, so our students have rejoiced in the mutual enthusiasm as they paraded in their scary finery.
Halloween at Allison also serves as a way to celebrate the tradition in a fun way that awakens the spirit of community and friendship in students, and lets them be expressive and daring in their creativity!
For Allison students, expressing their sense of creepiness is no mere child’s play! It is practically a form of art.
During the Halloween weekend, they made a show of stunningly uncanny costume choices, and all of them were seriously sinister. The attendants could witness skeletons and pyramid-heads walking over the school grounds, attending a bloody wedding, and running away from a T-Rex. And for the ones who were less into frightening the life out of others and more into just plain fun, there were some Teletubbies and Hogwarts students, and even Jesus could be seen chilling with the students!
Everyone who attended the Halloween party at Allison was delighted with the amount of creativity the students who dressed up expressed and had great fun playing around in their spooky alter-egos!
Being spooky for great spirits
Besides being a fun and important holiday in the international tradition, Halloween celebrations are just as important for social development as a school. Dressing up and coming up with imaginative costumes plays a big role in the development of a student’s creativity, which is, as it is widely known, one of the crucial skills for a child’s further development in life and academic pursuits.
Being a part of a festivity that puts emphasis on role-playing and cooperation with other children is also an important aspect of social and emotional growth for students, as it encourages expressing yourself in different roles.
And after all – costuming up is simply a fun way to play with your friends!
Allison Academy always makes sure that growing up is fun for the students!
