Carnevale is a significant festival held all over Italy and is known as the ‘last party before the 40 day fast’. Traditionally in Italy it is a time for fun, feasting and celebration before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
The wearing of masks at Carnevale is a very old tradition in Italy and our students had lots of fun decorating their own masks to wear for our Carnevale Parade, held on Thursday 12th March. The children proudly wore their amazing, colourful and creative masks. Thank you to all of the parents, carers and friends who came along to join us in this exciting school event.
The children in Prep -6 were also treated to a special Italian lesson, preparing and eating delicious, sweet, Italian ‘Castagnole’ / Carnevale donuts. DELIZIOSE!
Thank you/GRAZIE to all of our parent helpers and ‘nonna’ helper who were kept busy cooking, demonstrating and cleaning up. The children enjoyed having you in our classroom.
What a wonderful day for all! MAGNIFICO!
