Last month activities

MAP AND COMPASS TRAINING COURSE

Last month we had the basic training on how the map is built up. Where we learned difference symbols on the map and how to find the coordinate of spots, we also learned how to find the coordinate of your destination (under and on top of the sheet). We learned how to use the compass to find north, south, east and west, and to find the different degrees on map. Finally we went outside to practice what we have learned during the session.

This is wound makeup

This is wound makeup

This is casualty makeup we used to make fake wound, when we practice first aid we use this makeup to make wound look real. We also use this kind of makeup in Halloween festival to make people look more scary by making fake scratches on their face. Even though we find it scary, but we also find it fun to see how makeup can do fake wound looks  more realistic like real injuries. There are more different opportunities to make fake injuries. It’s only your imagination that stops you.

Halloween party in Haugesund

Allehelgensaften (Norsk) which is All hollow’s eve: is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, the eve of the western Christian feast of all hallows’ day. This is made in remembrance of dead including saints (hallows) and faithful departed.

Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, decorations, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing and divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions and telling scary stories.

This year of 2015 Haugesund Red Cross managed to celebrate Halloween festival by inviting all youths to Red Cross house, where some people made fake wound and scratches on their faces as well as on their bodies to look more scary. The purpose of scary makeups was to scare some of people who joined Halloween party, we did this by hiding ourselves on dark Forrest and invited others to come and find us then scare them.
