Carnival Celebration at the school
Today, students from Nursery to Grade 12, parents, teachers and other members of staff dressed up in colourful carnival costumes and celebrated together the festive carnival season. Caroline Braunshofer led the audience amusingly through the program. A jury of five, then, chose the students and teachers with the fanciest costumes.
In Switzerland, Germany and Austria, the terms Fasnacht, Karneval, Fasching or the “Fifth Season” are used to describe the customs related to celebration of the fasting period before Eastern. The festivities differ per region, but they all include costumes, a good atmosphere, donuts and a polonaise.
We say thank you to the planning group and the involved parents.
