It’s hard to believe that we have been here almost six years. Five years ago, the kids here had never heard of Halloween. About the only ones that dressed up were the teachers, and a handful of students. The rest looked at us and were thinking wtf??!! Five years later, we realize we have created a monster! Most students now go all out with their costumes and the variety is incredible. Of course, not all of them would pass inspection in Canada…probably the large group that arrived dressed as a Chinese gang and armed with actual baseball bats would be one group that would be turned away at the front door. However, in this country, anything goes. Permission to not wear the school uniform brings out the outlandish in everyone. Creativity, coupled with cheaply available costumes and a flair for dressing over the top on a normal day in this city, results in some pretty cool outfits. Here’s a sampling of what we saw all day at the school.
