Our teachers have been actively working to organize many fun filled activities. They are preparing for the arrival of Bonhomme who will be with us during Carnaval which will take place the week of Monday, February 11th, until Tuesday, February 19th, 2019.
Note: The ‘Dance royal has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 19th due to bus cancellation and inclement weather.
There are many theme days and activities happening every day. Students will also be challenged on guessing “Qui est Bonhomme?” and will be involved in many other fun-filled contests such as “Bingo” and “Guess how many?” This year, we are excited to say that we will also be holding a “Palais de Glace” competition whereby classes will be designing and constructing their own ice palace to display in the foyer. One winner from each division will win a prize. Pictures will be taken throughout the week and presented during our Closing Ceremony through a culminating Powerpoint.
