Italian Day Festa 2015


The students at Moonee Ponds Primary school experienced a little taste of Italian culture and language on Monday 3rd August 2015.

The Italian Day festa was a celebration of student learning and fun was had by all. On the day students dressed up in Italian colours or costumes that were synonymous with Italy. We had gondoliers, chefs, waiters and waitresses, pizza makers, some ‘fashionistas’, some dressed as the famous Mona Lisa and we had a Leonardo Da Vinci too! The students started the day with a costume parade. It was a great way for getting into the spirit of the day.

Students also attended the bilingual show called “Mangia Banane – Mission Gnocchi”. There was lots of laughter and interaction with the actors and the audience.

Students also learnt more about the Italian cultural event called “Carnevale” and created their own masks. The day ended with an Italian Trivia Quiz that challenged students thinking about what they had been learning in Italian over this past year.

Mille grazie to Ally and her team of helpers for serving gelato at lunchtime. The funds raised from the gelato sale will go towards resources in this curriculum area.

Grazie to all the students and teachers for making Italian Day such a huge success!
