Spirit Day ended with the Seniors (as IB Prisoners) being victorious at first place with the spirit award.
At the mocktail bar, combinations of various sodas were sold, along with many other mouth refreshing beverages and a variation of snacks. The mocktail menu included a wide range of soda mixtures. For example Witch’s Breath was a combination of CocaCola and grenadine. These drinks would tingle the experience of those dancers willing to pay the cheap price of 50¥ per cup.
On Friday the 2nd of September 2011, the Student Council held its first dance – Da Dance at the Auditorium. The dance aimed to welcome back the student body, both former and new and to also increase the integration between all high-school students in order to ultimately over come and bridge the gap between seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshman.
Approximately 10 hours was spent on the preparation of this event, including ideas for poster, layout, music selection, buying beverages and etc. The tremendous amount of effort and preparation put into this event was one of the key factors that lead to its success.
With new innovations, such as the laser, the dance turned out as a great success, with over 100 students attending the dance. In addition to the new technology and creating an enjoyable atmosphere, the council also wanted to assure the safety of personal valuables, such as the computers that were newly handed to the students by the “Connective Learning Community”. In order to do this the council introduced a clerk system so that students could drop off their school bags and valuables. This idea also turned out to be a success.
Overall we believe that Da Dance was a great success and would like to thank everyone who attended. However, in order to make these events more successful we would like to hear your opinion. Please complete the survey below and give in your opinion:
On Monday the 22nd of August 2011, the Student Council held its first event – the Ice Cream Social. By basically digging into the StuCo’s pockets, we provided free ice cream as a welcome back present to the rest of the high school during lunch.
By doing this, we hoped to promote the image of StuCo – by being able to host an event on the first Monday back from summer vacation, we wanted to create an uplifting, positive atmosphere for the students, especially the new incoming ones.
About 3000¥ was spent in buying chocolate and vanilla ice cream popsicles on Sunday, all of which was gobbled up by the sweet-toothed high school students.
The event was planned as a surprise, and while a lot of students appreciated the free ice cream, they did not seem to understand the purpose too well (fair enough, who randomly gives out free ice cream?)
All in all however, the first impression of the Student Council 2011-2012 was made with this event, and we hope that with this, we have caused interest in the student body for the upcoming “Da Dance” event on September 2, 2011.
