Age mixing is a constant phenomenon at school. We see it so much that it is not remarkable to us any longer. However, at the annual Halloween dance the “mixing” is part of the fun, and is obvious for all to see. For me, it is still amazing to watch how the older teenage kids integrate the little ones into the event. They dance with them, admire and comment on their costumes, and award them prizes for “best dancing”, “most original outfit”, and so forth.
This particular dance was as always organized entirely by the students, and it all went smoothly. The decorations, the food, the music, the lovely prizes and the cleanup were taken care of excellently, as we have come to expect. Most important, all the sixty participants had a great time. You can see it for yourself!
