The word "Lent" originally meant "springtime." Because the church season always fell at that time of year, the name came to apply to it as well. Even after the word "Lent" was no longer used for spring, it was still used by the church to describe the season before Easter. In all our classes we spoke about lent and the burial of the sardine is a symbolic way of dismissing the carnival.
IA students said goodbye to this special event by dressing up in their most outrageous costumes and parading for other classes, during the day children were working on special activities that had to do with lent. They wrote down three wishes and put them in a jar. Some classes got to burn them while others preferred to keep them in a Jar and open them up at the end of the course to see if their wishes will come true. IA students had a magnificent day!!
