Lower School boarders celebrate Martinstag

The Lower School boarders celebrated the German tradition of Martinstag by creating their own Laterne in this week’s International Games Club.

Martinstag also called Saint Martin’s Day, the Funeral of Saint Martin or Martinmas, as well as Old Halloween and Old Hallowmas Eve, is the Funeral day of Saint Martin of Tours. 

Children in Germany celebrate Martinstag on 11 November by making their own lanterns, walking around town and singing songs that honour the life of St. Martin.

The International Games Club is an activity offered to L1 and F1 boarders, which gives them an opportunity to learn a few words, traditions and games from German and Spanish speaking cultures.
