This year, our traditional “English breakfast” took place on Wednesday the 7th of February. All pupils of the 3rd year got well prepared beforehand, during their lessons of English.

The typical “English breakfast” is still known throughout the world, but in Britain it’s not as “typical” anymore as we often think. A lot of British do not longer have the time to prepare such an elaborate dish.

But on the Scheppers Institute, we like hard work and traditions, don’t we…? Thus, on Wednesday morning, all English teachers had to get up very early, because it’s always a real challenge to prepare such a traditional English breakfast for more than 120 hungry pupils and their teachers.

The pupils, all dressed in British school style, were offered coffee, tea, orange juice, toasts, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, beans in tomato sauce, jam, porridge,..: these are the typical ingredients of a real English Breakfast.
During the breakfast, pictures from all around the United Kingdom were projected. We also listened to British “evergreens”, combined with more modern British pop songs.
After the breakfast, all pupils participated in an “English Breakfast Quiz”. The winners would be rewarded with tickets for Kinepolis Ghent.
This year’s winner was the group called “The monkeys”: Nathan Dean, Simon De Groote, Giovanni Hendrickx en Quinten Walraeve. Congratulations and…have fun at the cinema!
Bram Moerenhout (3EMa) won the prize for “best dressed student”: a golden bowler hat!
So we can say that this year, our English breakfast was a big success again.
Thanks to all teachers of English for their commitment.
See you next year!
