Amazing Nintendo School Homecoming Restores Faith in US Education System

Posted by Damien McFerran

Learning with friends

We've seen some cool School Homecoming ideas in the past, but this one probably tops them all.

A Reddit user by the name of coonster has posted up some photos of the Nintendo-themed homecoming at his place of education, complete with references to Starfox, Pokémon and - of course - Super Mario.

You can check out the full gallery here, but we've posted a few of our favourite shots - the 'Do a Barrel Roll' one is, in our humble opinion, priceless.

My school!! :D
The Hyrule Castle area was amazing! After school on Friday when they were taking down the decorations and stuff, I went in and stole the 4-foot-tall wooden cut-out of Link. My friend took the flag from Bowser's Castle.

@0LD_SK0OL_PUNK Pentendo is a play on words. Our school is Palos Verdes Peninsula High School and our shortened name is PENHI. So we used word play and formatted our homecoming theme with our school's name: Pentendo.
