Colourful Carnevale Celebrations at Noosaville

​Noosaville State School year 4 and 5 students transported the entire school to Venice, Italy this week, with their celebrations of Carnevale! The famous Italian festival featured as part of their term one Italian language studies, with beautiful and colourful masks being created and Italian songs being sung. The students presented their Carnevale to the entire school community last Friday on a  dramatic assembly stage where hiding behind a mask meant you could be whatever character you wanted to be! Year 5 student Lucy said, that she just loved dressing up and pretending to be on stage showing off her colourful mask complete with bright feathers and sequins. Students in the form of marble statues took centre stage in dramatic form, before making their move in groups as they drifted as Italian characters across the stage to loud ‘bravo’ applause. Signora Maria, the school’s Italian language teacher commented that, “The students have been totally engaged in the process of creating their own unique masks with incredible attention to detail, so much so that each mask had become a reflection of each student’s personality.” Inspiration for their masterpieces came through viewing historic footage of past Venice Carnevale festivals. Students also extended their Italian language skills and learnt a lot about the Italian culture along the way. Noosaville State School students love learning Italian in their language studies so much now, that the whole school community now looks forward to coming together each year as they celebrate the Carnevale event.
