Canton Global Academy
Friday 27 October saw Canton Global Academy’s first (and that means the first of many more to come !) School Community event when it held its Masquerade Day. This gave the students and staff a golden opportunity to dress up in a whole variety of costumes and not only were the parents welcomed as part of the audience to see a catwalk style parade for everyone to show off their outfits, but they also provided scrumptious food for the whole school as a special lunch treat. Medals and certificates were awarded as prizes for the most creative costumes as worn by a student in each year group – an unenviable task for the judges since everyone really deserved an award. This fun day was concluded with a whole host of party games in which parents and staff helped to ensure all the children were all involved. Thanks to the parents for their splendid support – as the students said, The food was yummy ! – and to the students whose fabulous costumes definitely made Hollywood and Bollywood green with envy.
The food provided by the parents was varied and delicious and gave us a truly international cuisine from which to choose. Our compliments to the chefs who fed us so well. What a menu ! Unquestionably Five+Star rating ! And special thanksfor the great celebratory cake ….. complete with our logo !
And then the costumes. Colourful, creative and, asworn by our students, totally captivating ! All deserved prizes and the judges had a difficult and unenviable job. Seeing is believing - so just look at the photographs. Eat your heart out Bollywood/Hollywood !
So this proved to be a Fabulous Friday and we wish to thank the parents who helped provide us with food on the day, for attending the afternoon’s parade and assisting with the games and, of course, for providing the students with such great and colourful costumes. Also our thanks to all the members of staff who helped plan this event and for all the time and effort they have put in.
