Mask Parade

Mask Parade on PhotoPeach

Tonight we went in the Nelson Mask Parade. This year the theme was global spirit. At Nelson Central each class chose a different country to represent. We joined with Room 11 and represented Cambodia. We spent quite a few weeks making our masks. We did lots of painting and gluing of sparkly bits onto our masks.

Some of us were a little bit nervous before the parade but by the end we decided that we had had lots of fun. When we were marching in the parade we all sung the chorus from Bob Marley's song "One love, one heart" Room 2 and lots of parents provided the music for us. It was really neat when people were cheering and clapping for us. Now we just have to wait for another two years until we are in the mask parade again!

Please check back on Tuesday for a video from the mask parade
