The Easter Bonnet Parade

The children from the English Section kindergarten presented their fancy hats at the traditional Bonnet Parade yesterday.

A big thank you to all the children and parents for making such beautiful bonnets!

What is the history of Easter bonnets?

One of the more flamboyant and colourful customs at Easter is wearing Easter bonnets, which many people make and decorate. This comes from a time when people would wear their Sunday best to church at Easter. These bonnets are another joyful expression of new beginnings after the gloom of winter and Lent.
