Scary stories

Halloween or Hallowe’en (a contraction of All Hallows’ Evening),  is a spooky celebration observed every year in a number of countries on October 31 – the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day, also known as All Saints’ Day. The origins of trick or treating and dressing up were in the 16th century in Ireland, Scotland and Wales where people went door-to-door in costume asking for food in exchange for a poem or song. Many dressed up as souls of the dead and were understood to be protecting themselves from the spirits by impersonating them.

This year our students have joined this celebration in a special way. Creativity has taken hold of them and we have witnessed their power of narration. We have received about 100 chilling stories that have participated in the first Scary Stories Contest held in our school.

After passing through a jury composed of the teachers of the English Department, four stories were selected from two different categories, being the winners:

Category A       Winner        Alba García Ramos  “Three thirty three”

Finalist         Claudia Pardo   “Happy Billy”

Category B       Winner    Selena Palao Ramos  ” A typical night”

Finalist         Fco Javier Díaz Lozano  “A horror story”

1er premio categoria 1º 2º ESO Three thirty

1er premio 3 y 4 eso A typical night

The winners picked up their prize at the local radio where they could talk about their works personally. Congratulations !!
