It’s all about the Havishams!

Nov. 28, 2016 | Mr. Kelso’s Form V class had a great time playing the Great Expectations Monopoly board game this morning.

After reading the Charles Dickens' classic last term, each student was tasked with preparing a special creative project inspired by the novel. They produced film trailers, paintings, and… a board game! Jessica P. and Ivannia G. Y.’s project was an clever representation of Pip’s journey in the novel, from humble orphan to blacksmith’s apprentice to wealthy gentleman. The game inspired a lot of light-hearted fun; one student was heard shouting “It’s all about the Havishams!” as he collected a payout of special Monopoly money printed with Miss Havisham’s likeness on the bills. But players must also beware - a wrong move could lead to financial debt, a broken heart, or a trip to prison!
