It was a great day to celebrate our annual Carnaval de Québec with the high school French students. A big thank you to the French students, who ran our stations, and Mrs. Taggart for organizing a fun event! Here are some of the highlights:
Which Carnaval station was your favourite and why?
It was a beautiful day today as we enjoyed the outdoors and learned about the cultural event of Carnaval de Québec that occurs every February. Due to our warm winter conditions, we modified some of our stations but still had a great time. Our high school’s grade nine French class came over to help us with stations and teach us some words in French!
We love our mascot, Bonhomme! Here is a fun song about him in French:
A big Thank-You to everyone who helped make this day a big success!
Pedagogy is the science and art of education. Here is a collection of some of my personal highlights over the past two years at our school. I am so pleased to be back at our school again in the fall :)!
Today was our Carnaval de Jeux Olympiques! Each buddy group was given a country to represent and got to travel around to stations that connect with both the Olympics and Carnaval de Québec. Mr. Keiver and his French 10/11/12 class came down to our school to help us learn how to say our country’s name in French and some other popular French sayings. They even brought Bonhomme this year! A big thank you to all of our volunteers :)!
***More pictures to come soon hopefully!***

Did you learn any French words? If so, what were they?
On Wednesday, our school hosted our own winter Carnaval. We invited the other K-3 school and had the French 10 class come over from our high school to help us run the stations and share some of our French Canadian language and culture with us. We had 8 events at our Carnaval:
Cabane à sucre (Sugar Shack)
Bain de neige (Snow Bath)
Jeu de soccer géant (Giant Table-Soccer)
Queues de castor (Beaver Tails)
Sculpture sur neige (Snow & Ice Sculptures)
Bonhomme Carnaval (Pictures with Bonhomme)
Glissades (Snow Slides)
Hockey bottine (Floor Hockey)
The sun shone brightly and it was a fun day! Thank you to everyone – teachers, parents, and students for the support to make this a successful and fun day!
