Commas, brackets and full stops took over Garden International School (GIS) for World Punctuation Day.

The school Prefects organised a demonstration in the ancient art of kung fu punctuation for Primary students. This is a fun activity where all the main punctuation marks are transformed into martial arts moves.

Secondary students also joined in – they were given a jumbled message with no punctuation. Once they decoded it and filled in all the right commas and colons, it led them to a room where a prize was waiting.

Languages’ Prefect John Caules said, “We thought this was a great day to celebrate, as punctuation is so important. The students already know their grammar extremely well, and it was fun to see them take part in this activity.”
