The last Friday before half term, on the 21st of February, we will organise Farsang activities for Primary again!
Farsang is a festive period between Vízkereszt (Epiphany) and Hamvazószerda (Ash Wednesday), the period before the Lent in Western Christianity. Farsang is the time of fun and feast, traditionally aimed at chasing winter away and invite spring with laughter and joy. Hungarians eat a lot of doughnuts and have fancy dress parties in this season.
On the day of Farsang, Primary students can dress up as anything they want to. Traditionally Farsang is about being creative and making your own surprising and funny costume. It is not just story characters you can think about: you can be a Rubik’s cube, a sausage or a washing machine, if you want! You can even pair up with a friend to create a co-operative costume with two people inside!
Everybody can show their costumes at the Assembly, and our jury will give prizes in the following cathegories:
1. The tallest costume
2. The best co-operative costume (with two or more people inside)
3. The best costume made of recycled materials
4. The best disguise (no one can guess who’s inside)
5. The best object costume
6. The best animal costume
7. The fluffiest costume
8. Extra - Jury’s choice
+ Teachers’ Prize (for the teacher with the best costume)
+ House Captains’ Choice for Creativity (voted by House Captains)
This year, classes will move to different styles of music on stage at the Assembly, wearing their costumes. In the afternoon we will have fun activities.
See you there to help us chase away the winter!
