In the Roman Empire’s waning years, when its citizens could not afford bread, its leaders chose to appease and pacify the masses with the spectacle and sport of the arena. Instead of spending their dwindling coffers on running the empire and making sure its people were fed, the government instead chose to buy and import sand to fill the colosseums.
Angels Academy had a great turnout for their School Carnival on October 18. Games, food, face-painting and a bouncy castle were the highlights of the event. Faculty and staff were particularly pleased that they had more people from the wider community attend the carnival this year.
Angels Academy held its third annual fund raising fair from Noon to 4 pm on the first Saturday of November. It was a hot day for the season, but it did not prevent the many people attending the carnival from having a great time.
