Students at St Andrew’s College in CAMHS celebrated Halloween in style this year with not one but two spooky events. 

On Monday, the day before Halloween, the young people attended a daytime event which involved a wide variety of games and activities such as finding Halloween ducks in jelly slime and throwing the hoop so it lands on the witches hat. There were also spooky mocktails to sample and spider cake decorating to do. 

College staff decorated all the doors with a Halloween theme and the young attendees got to vote for their favourite, but the star attraction of the day was a visit from the St Andrew’s College’s reading dog, Trinity. He was a welcome addition to the library sessions where students got to pet him, while they listened to ghostly tales and learnt some gruesome facts.

On the evening on Halloween itself, the young people were out and about again, taking part in their head torch lit Halloween camp. They enjoyed more activities, such as a spooky treasure hunt and party games then headed back to Smyth House for more games, pizza and a Halloween movie in the sensory cinema.
