“Where the World Comes to School,” Brentwood boasts great diversity across its student body. Students from Nigeria and of Nigerian descent make up one of the larger ethnic groups at the school, and this past Wednesday we had the chance to share our colourful culture and cuisine with the school community.
Between 5:15 and 6:30, Crooks Hall transformed into a “Dinner and a Show” venue; ornate green and white decorations filled the building while tunes from Stephen I, Privett ‘18, aka DJ Steve-O, boomed from a speaker, and the delicious aroma of food caused mouths to water from all corners of campus.
On the menu were Jollof Rice with Stew and Chicken, Plantain Chips, Meat Pie, Plantain Chips, Puff Puff for dessert, and Zobo to drink. Everyone loved the environment and the Puff Puff and Meat Pies were extremely popular.
The Nigerian Dinner was a great success and an excellent part of Fright Week. Thanks to Glory C, Mackenzie ‘18 and her crew for serving and decorating, Mrs McLean for providing the decorations, and the food services staff for creating an authentic Nigerian meal for the Brentwood community. We hope everyone had a great time and we’ll see you at the next Fright Week event!
