Special Event - Mardi Gras Celebration Day

4 March 2014

Well, what a wonderful day, full of colour and movement. The children looked amazing, dressed in all the colours of the rainbow. Any children that didn’t manage a costume were dressed by staff in school dressing resources.

We started the day with an assembly which told us all about Mardi Gras, what it meant (Fat Tuesday) and why it was celebrated. Then we had a day of activity, making masks, necklaces, headwear and colourful paper ‘skirts’. We also practised music, with lots of drums and whistles, and dance. The children watched a school performing a dance on Youtube and then made up their own steps.

At the end of the day all the classes met in the hall and we had a carnival procession around the school corridors. It was very noisy and colourful.

Here are just a few of the photos. As you can see the staff enjoyed the day as well!
