For the second time our school is celebrating the traditional German Fasching or Karneval. The carnival session, also known as the “Fifth Season”, begins each year on November 11th at 11:11 a.m. and finishes on Ash Wednesday of the following year with the main festivities happening around Rosenmontag (Rose Monday). Read more about carnival on our heritage page.
We had a fantastic ‘Karnevalsumzug’ on the special leap day on February 29 and were delighted to have so many guests! Thank you to everyone for the great costumes! We had so much fun and are happy to be able to share the German tradition of ‘Fasching’ with our members and the public!
At the end of the parade, everybody received a traditional German Kreppel or Krapfen. Which is basically a sugary donut filled with raspberry jam. Delicious!
