There was a haunting feel throughout Rydal Penrhos this week to celebrate one of the most prominent social occasions on the Sixth Form calendar.
The Year 12 and 13 groups put on their most spooktacular fancy dress outfits for the annual Halloween Ball, which was held at the recently revamped Ferguson Centre on Wednesday, October 17.
There were plenty of incredible outfits on display, ranging from Head of Sixth Form Leah Crimes’ sensational Maleficent outfit to Power Rangers, Skeletons, Count Dracula, Mike Myers and Convicts.
Upper Sixth Form pupil Will Crumb, who dressed up as an American Cub Scout, won best outfit and Ruby James was given the responsibility of documenting the event on Rydal Penrhos’ Snapchat account.
Catering providers Holroyd Howe got everybody in the mood for the festivities with a special Halloween themed lunch, which featured Spooky Garlic Chicken Thighs Served with Tomato Guts Sauce & Ghost Snot Broccoli, Frankenstein Pumpkin & Feta Risotto served with Basil Slime, Ghost Snot Broccoli, Roast Graveyard Pots & Sweetcorn Eyeballs.
Boarding house residents at Hathaway also participated in a series of Halloween activities to mark the occasion before they head off on their well-deserved half-term break on Friday.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our Sixth Form Social Committee did a fantastic job of organising another incredible Halloween Ball, and everybody made a real effort with their respective costumes which looks absolutely fantastic on the night.
“They have worked incredibly hard throughout the first half term of the academic year and events such as this are a great way to reward them for representing Rydal Penrhos in such a positive way.”
