Northgate Carnival Parade


Inspirational pupils at Northgate Primary School paraded round their wonderful £6 million school after weeks of making carnival carts.


Drake Class took part in a lantern making workshop as part of the Bridgwater Carnival celebrations. They spent a day learning about how willow is grown  and how to weave it into lanterns. The pupils then added lights and covered the frames in preparation for the Lantern Parade.


Some 12 pupils and two members of staff joined other primary schools from the local area to walk through Bridgwater displaying their lanterns. And Northgate's Carnival Club decorated a giant space-theme mask for part of the Bridgwater Carnival display. 


Headteacher Katie Penny, said: “Our pupils had great fun preparing for the main carnival displays and their own carnival. There was creativity, designs and inspiration in abundance.”
