Happy Halloween!

Spirit Week and Halloween all rolled into one. It's been a distracting week as far as learning is concerned, but definitely a fun one! Most of our spirit week days were simply color-themed (boring, but for a culture into uniforms, it works well). We had "Opposite Day" in which the boys dress up as girls, and the girls dress up as boys. For a culture with a recognized 3rd gender (fa'afafines... basically males living as females), this seems a bit odd/insensitive, but it was hilarious nonetheless.

We had a competition-based assembly for Halloween. The student body was split into 3 groups: Casper (my group), Pumpkin, and Ghostbusters. We had to create a flying ghost, a dramatic reading, and a dance. Our group won the competition (Yay!)!
