Masopust is a celebratory period occurring early in the calendar year that brings people together and strengthens the bonds within the community. During the colourful Masopust carnival, students connected school subjects with their local identity. They reflected on the social and cultural significance of the event from both a historical and a present day perspective, through discussions and projects in English conversation, history, civic education and art classes. A video made by students during the carnival will be used as a teaching resource in the future.
