At Ingla we like to finish off our terms with a bang! And there’s no better way to send Inglans off on their holidays than to have a memorable party celebrating the most colourful and festive time of year.
With sparkling tinsel hung around our school, a real evergreen tree brightened with baubles, and red and green lights strung around every classroom and hallway, Ingla was ready to host a great Christmas party for our students. Having a touch of Wham! on the stereo and a pot full of fruity Christmas punch just made things perfect. It’s just a shame that no one remembered the mistletoe…
The crowd favourite was the Name Game, a clever game where students had a sticky note with a famous person’s name attached to their forehead and had to guess who it was having only their conversations with other party-goers to go on as evidence. Questions could be asked by the “celebrity”, answers could be given by anyone else in the room, but everyone had to be careful not to let the cat out of the bag. Yes, there were games, there was food, there was drink, and, of course, it wouldn’t be a party without dancing.
In one corner of the school we had games galore to get people up and moving and having fun. Limbo was a big hit as Inglans tested their flexibility and balance to boogie under the limbo pole without touching it. Everyone cheered on and took turns putting their back-bending mettle to the test. Luckily it was early in the evening! Other amusements were more cerebral and tested our students’ English skills.
For one night only, our classrooms were transformed into a nightclub with students taking turns sharing songs and dances from their countries, using the universal language of music to break down barriers and have a good time.
The end of the Christmas Party night was the end of the term, and everyone went home happy, full of Christmas cheer and with carols ringing in their ears. Another successful party, and another successful year, was over. Here’s to another, with Ingla!
