Carnival 2021

At Novaschool Sunland International, we have always celebrated carnival with colour and music. On this special day, our students and teachers dress up with masks and costumes, making this day one of the most exciting and popular events in our school year.

Carnival is an Italian word meaning ‘carnevale’ which comes from the word ‘carne levare’ or ‘withdraw of meat’, a concept related to Lent.

Through the course of history, and across the globe, many different cultures and civilisations have dates dedicated to carnival-like celebrations. In Spain, sardines are traditionally buried at the end of festivities. In the past, they were burnt as fire was considered atonement for sins.

Each country has its own traditions… and every school celebrates it in its own manner!

Here at Novaschool Sunland, we decided to celebrate Carnival slightly differently this year. Given the current circumstances it is difficult to go to shops and buy costumes for the children. Therefore, each class was assigned a rainbow colour so that we can create a nice collage with all the photos and create a positive message in these difficult times.

We will show you the picture on our social networks very soon! 😉

 


2020 Halloween Party at Novaschool Sunland

As every year, at Novaschool Sunland we have decided to celebrate Halloween with our students and teachers. Although this time we have not been able to share these moments with parents due to the current circumstances, we would like to thank all the school staff and families for their support and collaboration.

Throughout the morning, primary students participated in a parade in front of a jury made up of the older ones. Each class made its entrance accompanied by its tutors, dancing to music rhythm.

Our head of elementary school Mr. Spencer and our principal Miss Evans have been the organizers of this event. They’ve given prizes to the best costumes and we’ve had a great time together.

Our pupils’ happiness and smiles are the true essence of this little party. They are our greatest encouragement to move forward as a real team.
