Carnival games, live music, face painting, hand henna and water bouncers were among the family-friendly activities lined up. Food and drink stalls ensured visitors did not go hungry.

The Brunei Biodiversity and Natural History Society (BruWILD) also set up a booth to educate visitors about wildlife and conservation. According to a Stella School representative, all proceeds from the charity event will be channelled to BruWILD.

The carnival was held to mark the school’s 50th anniversary and to help raise funds for wildlife conservation – through BruWILD.
