Whether you’re in love or have lovely friends, Valentines Day is a magical day for all. Valentine’s Day is a jumble of traditions, beliefs, and celebrations that has come to us from a distant past. The story goes all the away back to the 2nd Century A.D.

Some of our staff enjoyed a fabulous Valentines Day party together. The theme was pink and red. The decorations were breathtaking! The food was great, but most of all the atmosphere was enchanting.
But did you ever wonder how teachers and other staff members at Canterbury College spend the big day? We asked a few staff members what they thought about Valentines Day and how they spent it. This is what they had to say.
“Single red roses say a lot more than a romantic candlelight dinner.” – Keith Burgess, Teacher
“My husband took me punting on the Avon River. I have a very romantic husband!”
– Magdala Williams, Teacher
“Had a break from the red commercial buzz. Instead had a relaxing night with champagne, chocolate, good conversation and a romantic film. I could certainly do that every week!” – Chris Hilton, Marketing Manager
From the bottom of our hearts, all of us at Canterbury College hope you had a Happy Valentines Day, however you chose to spend it.
