Carnival Comes to ICS!

Carnival Comes to ICS!
Jennifer Wallace

On the last day of term before the winter break, ICS Côte d'Azur students and families celebrated carnival at school.

Carnival is big celebration in the Nice region primarily due to its historical significance, cultural importance, and the unique atmosphere it creates. The Carnival of Nice is one of the largest and most famous carnivals in the world, attracting thousands of visitors each year, with the tradition dating back to the Middle Ages.

Students paraded around the school playground in their costumes whilst their families cheered them from the sidelines, and then the community enjoyed a 'Happy Hour' playtime session with drinks and snacks sponsored by the Parent Association.

Carnival is one of our biggest community celebrations, alongside Fall Fest, Winter Wonderland, International Day, and the Summer Concert.
