Friday students dressed as the living dead for the school’s first ‘Spirit Week’

During the week of September 26 through to September 30, the students of Fernie Secondary School participated in the very first Spirit Week of the year. The student leadership group held five different themed events during this week and they included Pyjama Day, Rock Star Day, Ugly Clothes Day, “Jersday”, and last but not least, Zombie Day. Every day included an event that was held during lunch hour. On Pyjama Day, the students engaged in a pillow fight, during Rock Star Day students participated in a dance competition, followed by a fashion show on Ugly Clothes Day, where the ugliest clothing won. Thursday consisted of “Jersday” where students dressed as their favorite Jersey Shore character and participated in a GTL (gym, tanning, laundry) relay race. The week was concluded with Zombie Day, where students dressed like the undead and took part in an enormous dodgeball game. Many students participated in these events throughout the week and a great amount of fun and enthusiastic school spirit was shown.
