On Thursday, October 31st, KIST Kindergarten Department celebrated Halloween, and all the students had a great time. Leading up to the Halloween event, the students were taught about the origins of Halloween, learned some Halloween songs, and also learned about the scary Halloween characters. They enjoyed using their ne Halloween vocabulary to play games. In addition to the learning activities, they also enjoyed some hands-on craft activities. They were able to express their creativity by constructing Halloween hats and bags for tick-or-treating .
On the day of the event, both the students and teachers showed up in Halloween costumes. The celebration started with a nice assembly in front of the kindergarten followed by a parade along the primary and secondary offices. For the trick- or-treating, they visited the principal, Mr. Cho Cheolsoo, in his office, and the secondary and elementary teacher’s offices. They all got a lot of treats from the teachers. After the parade, two other activities were held at the same time. A fashion show was conducted by our English teachers, and a Halloween game was conducted by our Chinese teachers.
For the fashion show, the students walked on the stage one by one showcasing their Halloween costumes. At the end of the activities, everyone gathered together and sang Halloween songs .
