For the first 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’ and were delighted to have so many guests! Thank you to our Choir Teacher Annabelle for the performance and our Adult Class Teacher Markus for bringing ‘Kamelle’ (sweets that are thrown in the crowd at the parades in Germany)! We had so much fun and are happy to be able to share the German tradition of ‘Fasching’ with our members and the public!

Here a video of our school version of the traditional German Fasching Parade.

At the end of the parade, everybody received a traditional German Kreppel. Which is basically a sugary donut filled with raspberry jam. Delicious!
