Carnevale!

La Signora Vecchi (L’insegnante di Italiano/Teacher of Italian)

Ciao a tutti/Hi everyone,

Mercoledi 17 febbraio abbiamo celebrato la giornata Italiana a KHPS con la tema Carnevale.

KHPS celebrated Italian Day on Wednesday 17th February with the theme Carnevale. The day consisted of Level and specialist activities such as Tombola/Bingo in Maths, Bocce in Sport and Maschere/making masks in Art.

A whole school Assembly ensured everyone was well informed about Carnevale with a brief presentation and two traditional Italian dance demonstrations given by a few Level 4 students. (La Tarantella and Il Ballo del qua, qua/chicken dance.) It was also wonderful to see the colours of the Italian flag during Assembly. The children made a great effort to wear a top in either verde, bianco or rosso according to their level. Bravissimi!

During Lunch, many children enjoyed Pizza and un gelato! Mmm buona la pizza e il gelato!/Delizioso!

The day concluded with a whole school Incursion from Cultural Infusion with an Italian show entitled ‘La Commedia dell’ arte – Il Capitano.’  The children seemed to enjoy the show evident by how engaged and enthusiastic they were. There was audience participation and plenty of laughter throughout the highly entertaining show!

Voglio ringraziare  l’insegnanti, i genitori  e  gli studenti  per il loro meraviglioso lavoro per fare la giornata Italiana un successo!  I would like to thank the staff, parents and students for their wonderful effort  and help to make Italian Day a success!  Grazie a tutti!
