St. Patrick’s Day Celebration in English B Class!
Grade Ten Pre-IB students had a great time celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in their English B period last Friday, the 17th March,2017. Prior to the day, they had been told to dress in green— the symbolic colour of St. Patrick’s Day. Their teachers decided to combine the two English B classes and play a game of ‘musical chairs’ with the students. They were first shown a short video clip on the history and culture surrounding the festival, asked to take notes, then a green box was passed round the class as Irish music was played. The student that ended up with the green box when the music stopped was then asked a question based on the information presented. If the student answered wrongly, a round of ‘truth or dare’ ensued which saw some cunning questions as well as personal answers being revealed, much to the audience’s enjoyment! The festivities ended with a distribution of candy to thank everyone’s participation. On the whole, much was learnt about this important Irish day in a vibrant and fun-filled way.
