What a wonderful day we had, full of cultural and educational experiences. It was great to see children working together, enjoying activities that incorporated working with buddies, co-operative team work, respecting one another all with smiles on faces. The children participated in the following activities:

Grade 6 made Venetian masks that celebrate Carnevale, a festival that occurs throughout Italy.

Grade 5 created and crafted models of The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Grade 3 and 4 learned about Leonardo Da Vinci and used charcoal to create portraits of The Mona Lisa. They also used charcoal to sketch drawings under tables, lying on the ground as Michelangelo did to paint The Sistene Chapel. 

Grade 2 made Roman Mosaics and enjoyed the show ‘Dammi Cinque’

Grade 1 Made Gondola’s and learnt about Venice

Foundation students made carnival masks and Italian flags.

The Gelati van was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by both students and staff.
