Nelson Masked Parade

Tasman School enters the Nelson Masked Parade every two years.
In 2016, Tasman school won two awards: the 'School' section of the parade as well as the "Kim Merry Surpreme Award" with their Gondwana entry.

Tasman School also won the above two awards in 2014 for their 'steampunk' entry.

Tasman School wowed the crowd and the judges when they won two awards; the Kim Merry Supreme Award along with the award for best school

Tasman School were also successful in the 2014 Nelson Masked Parade where they won the same two awards with their 'Steampunk' entry.

The theme was Flights of Fancy and the Gondwana Dream. There were five groups amongst the school entry and they included Wetas, Kiwis, Tuataras, Haast Eagles and Moas. Each outfit was made with recycled materials by the children with a little help from teachers and parents.

The 2014  theme “Steampunk” certainly did look impressive with children wearing helmets, jetpacks and roller skates adorned in recycled material.
Each costume was completely unique and individual.
