An overview of the week by Beatriz Soares – DP1b

“This year our school’s Student Council (Leerlingenraad) decided to try out having a Spirit Week, similar to the ones in American schools, and it was a lot of fun! Many times it is difficult to bring together the different educational sides of the school, but when they do come together it is so great, which was one of the main goals of the Spirit Week!

I was a bit disappointed by the lack of participation from some people, but I took every advantage to dress up for the themes. On Teacher Tuesday my friends, Hannelore & Elena, and I arranged to dress up as our DP coordinator and Geography higher teacher, Mr. Symmons, we even coordinated matching outfits, his reaction was perfect and we all enjoyed ourselves (now it’s even become an inside joke). The rest of the week was Wacky Wednesday; Throwback Thursday in which I came to school dressed as the 70s; and Famous Friday where I tried my best to be Britney Spears.

I really hope that this tradition continues into the coming years, even if I am already long gone from the school because I am sure that it can easily become part of our school traditions and bring everyone closer, encourage some proper school spirit.
