Trinidad and Tobago - Carnival

The Trinidad and Tobago annual carnival took place this year on the 3rd and 4th of March.

A Colourful Event

Carnival is the most significant event on the islands' cultural and tourism calendar, with numerous cultural events running in the lead up to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. It is said that if the islanders are not celebrating it, then they are preparing for it, while reminiscing about the past year's festival.

Carnival Costumes

The carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is an explosion of colour, music, revelry, and creativity,  

With its massive masquerade bands, spectacular costumes, pulsating music and unparalleled stamina for partying, Trinidad's Carnival is often described as the greatest show on earth. It is a time for release and everyone is invited to join the party.

Our Costumes

Mrs Gallivan managed to bring some real carnival costumes in from Trinidad. Some pupils wore the costumes and showed them to the rest of the pupils in the school.  Primary 7 pupils did some art work using the wonderfuls costumes.
