MG Fat Tuesday Event

This year's MG Fat Tuesday Celebration took place on February 17th in the Cinema Hall. The E5 and MYP students along with some teachers attended the event.

We kicked it off with the multimedia presentations about different international masquerade parades called "Carnivals Around the World". The MYP students researched and created the slideshows to teach us about cities who are famous for the way they celebrate Fat Tuesday. After that we had the Best Mask Contest, a contest which determined the best costume in all E5 and MYP. Only the students who wanted to participate were judged by 5 judges. Each judge looked for a specific characteristic in the costumes. The participants had to perform a cat walk or an act and then be judged by the judges; the scores were from 0 to 5. The 3rd place winner was a boy dressed up as a girl, the 2nd place winner was a cheerleader and the 1st place winner was a mime. It was a very tough competition. The winners picked a prize and were treated to a pizza lunch. The final event was the Charity Tombola. In this year's Charity Tombola we raised 2 000 HRK for the SOS Children's Village in Lekenik. Each student purchased tickets and donated gifts.

We would like to thank all the parents and students who participated in or supported this event. All in all we had a great time, we learned more about carnivals around the world and helped children in need.
