Italian Card Games 

Students had the opportunity at lunch time to learn how to play a traditional Italian card game called ‘Scopa.’ Senior students mentored many of the Junior students in how to play this fun game. Many students took up this exciting opportunity.

Students learnt some of the rules of the game, names of the suits and values of the cards. Italian cards are quite different to traditional playing cards. The suits are:

  • Coppe (cups)
  • Spade (Spades)
  • Denari (Coins)
  • Bastoni (Club)
