Spooky Fun at Freddie’s

Well what can I say! This year’s spooky disco and sensory activities have to have been the best ever.  Students and staff made a fantastic effort dressing up in some amazing costumes including; witches, pumpkins, skeletons, vampires and many more.  We had prizes for the best dressed in each of the phase groups and our judges found it a very difficult job as all the outfits were so good.



The fancy dress parade started the event at 2pm with all the primary children showing off their spooky outfits first, followed by the senior and college students, who certainly knew how to scare the staff with their masks and scary noises. Thanks to our wonderful PTFA the hall had been transformed into a haunted mansion with spiders’ webs, skeletons, slime and lots of other spooky treats.


We had all the disco favourites including; The Monster Mash, Ghostbusters, Baby Shark and of course the Hokey Cokey with prizes for the best dancers, singers and scariest statues.  The glow sticks were glowing and the sensory area which Miss Angus set up was busy with brave explorers searching through slimy spaghetti to find skeletons and spiders, getting their hands tangled in spider’s webs and sticky from exploring the pumpkin seeds or just chilling out in the 4D room when the music and fun got a bit too much.


A big thank you to our wonderful PTFA who worked tirelessly to transform the hall for the students, run a fantastic raffle and create a pit stop in the Café complete with a spider biscuits and spooky buns. We would also like to thank Claire, our school cook who made lots of wonderful treats for the café and then joined the students and staff dancing in the Hall.  Finally we would like to thank all the staff, students and you for supporting the event by sorting out a costume for your child and/or coming along to enjoy the fun.

We look forward to Freddie’s being transformed into the Haunted Mansion again next year.
