French News

Things were decidedly fishy in the Junior School on the last day before the Easter long weekend. Our French Captains, Nic and Jarrod, organised a special event, the Poisson d'Avril. In France, April Fool's Day is celebrated with the tradition of secretly sticking paper fish on each other's backs. Our Captains heard about the tradition and decided to put it in place in the Junior School. 1 April falls over the weekend, so we borrowed 29 March as our day for the event. From Period 1 to 4, all boys were encouraged to secretly stick paper fish on each other, their teachers and even… Mr Stewart!

Lots of fun was had by all, and plenty of poisson was fluttering off backs all morning long!
