Our second Spirit Day of the year is an interesting one and one that I do not believe has been done at DGH before: DECADES Day! Then again, it could have something to do with me wondering which decade to choose (it is Mr. Parish writing the post) because I have many to choose from: the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s!
My life spans fabrics from polyester to cotton and styles from bell-bottoms (not my favourite) to the extremely bright and colourful neon colours of the 80s. Frankly, I cannot wait for our students today to look back 20 years from now at what they are wearing today and wonder “what was I thinking?” Do you go with the long hair of the 70s (not an issue for me anymore) or the “big” hair of the 80s with A LOT of hair spray!
Students – it is time to get creative and think outside of the box. Check out the web for what people were wearing years ago and see if you can copy that. Who knows, perhaps your parents still have some of their clothing from years past…
Let’s rock the DECADES, DGH school community!
