Spooky PTA Fun at Kidderminster’s Holy Trinity School

Students at Kidderminster’s Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre enjoyed a spooky week thanks to the school’s PTA who organised a range of Halloween themed activities.

Spooky biscuit decorating, eerie cakes, a whole range of fun Halloween themed activities and school caterers, MiQuill Catering, created a ghostly lunchtime-menu, with all events and spooky foods enjoyed by students and staff who dressed in Halloween themed cloths in exchange for a £1 donation to the school’s PTA.

PTA Chair Sarah Wilson commented: “The PTA at Holy Trinity would like to thank pupils, parents and staff for supporting the Halloween events run this year. We loved seeing the children’s decorated biscuits, their smiles as they chose their sweetie cones and their super fancy dress outfits!

“We were unable to run the events that would usually take place at this time of year, but we hope that everyone had spooky fun anyway. The money raised by the PTA will directly benefit the pupils and we are pleased that we could contribute a little cheer in what has been a challenging year so far.”

Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31, with the tradition originating with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Known in the UK as All Hallows Eve, or the day before All Saints' Day, observed on November 1, Halloween is also known as Nut-crack Night, Thump-the-door Night or Apple and Candle Night.

Headteacher, Mrs Pamela Leek-Wright stated: “The school’s PTA is always very proactive in raising funds for the benefit of our students, but this year due to the pandemic things have had to be changed and rearranged.

“Covid-19 hasn’t stopped them in the slightest, they are still raising funds, but now in new and more creative ways, for which, on behalf of the whole school community, we are extremely grateful!”
