The Fatima College Carnival Show was an initiative revitalized in 2008 by the staff members and students of the College. The event was previously one that featured a Calypso/Soca competition among the musically talented students of forms 1-6. However, in 2008, it was decided to extend the annual Carnival Show to include a mas aspect that featured ‘Ole Mas’, Traditional Mas alongside Pretty Mas costumes, created by the students themselves.
Thus in 2008, the Fatima College Mas Camp was born, located in the College’s Hall. The weeks preceding the annual show, which is usually carded for Carnival Friday, witnessed the transformation of the Hall into a real mas camp of the sort where students and teachers alike willingly and actively participated in the design and creation of costumes, all in an effort to produce a spectacular Carnival Show. The aim was to showcase the creative talent of the College’s students while providing a holistic educational experience, where students were exposed to the history and culture of Trinidad and Tobago.
Since 2008, The Fatima College Carnival Show has continued to produce a phenomenal event, exhibiting musical creativity and artistic talent through song and costume in the Parade of the Bands. Every year the Show becomes more artistically elaborate illustrating the wide range of talent that Fatima College has to offer.
