Back in December, student council was getting us pumped up for Christmas with a holiday- themed spirit week. On the Monday of that week, the halls were flooded with foreigners and tourists for travel day. Welcome to the Barrie Central tour!! On your left in room 105 you can see Eiffel tower and in the library you can see the beautiful ancient sculptures of the Classics Club. On Tuesday, students snuggled up in their pjs in the library with hot chocolate and the classic holiday movie Elf. Wednesday morning students arrived to the smell of pancakes and Canadian bacon filling the halls for Canada day. The halls were as full as their bellies after a classic Canadian breakfast, and everyone had on their patriotic red and white. On Thursday, thanks to the Arts’ Council, Library Unplugged was a hit and students wore their fleece and wool for ugly sweater day. The teacher holiday assembly on Friday was a riot as always, and kicked off the Christmas break with a laugh. Huge thanks to student council for pulling all of that together! There was amazing participation and the spirit in the school was soaring.
But Central's spirit didn’t end there! Right after the exam break the student council came back ready to work, planning another spirit week for Valentine’s week. The love was in the air during the weekof Februrary 9-13, starting with backwards day on Monday. The students were quite the sight to see; backpacks were on bellies and underwear was on the outside; this day was definitely a hit. Tuesday, students got comfy and slipped into their sweats on sweats. Wednesday was full of colour in Central: the theme that day was crayon day, with students dressed from head to toe in Crayola colours. Even students who lack colour in their wardrobe showed their spirit by sporting all black everything. On Thursday students showed their sport spirit with jerseys of all sports and teams. Friday, love birds and friends wore each others’ hearts on their chests and dressed in red and pink, the colours of love. Big thanks to all the students who make the spirit weeks a success. We’re looking forward to see what the spirit in the school the spring brings to Central.
