Carnaval 2020 at Alexandra


On Friday, February 14, Alexandra Community School held its second annual Carnaval. This festival is a school-wide celebration of French music, culture, and language. French teacher Ricki Mullen worked with her Grade 7 and 8 students as part of a unit of study, to organize this special event for all Alexandra Eagles to enjoy. For the entire day, the school was divided into groups ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 7, which rotated through activities run by the Grade 7 and 8 leaders. The outdoor activities included the chance to make maple syrup taffy around the campfire, painting in the snow, team skiing, snowball tossing, and much, much more. Meanwhile, the Eagles and their neighbours enjoyed traditional and contemporary Carnaval music. While the weather was perfect for outdoor fun, a number of indoor activities were also planned so that students had opportunities to warm up throughout the day, create their Carnaval masks, and enjoy pancakes and hot chocolate. The Alexandra school community would like to thank teacher Greg Courage for being the official photographer of Carnaval 2020. Thanks are also extended to both community sponsors, Zehrs and Owen Sound Tim Hortons, for their generosity. Of course, a special thank you goes out to Mme. Mullen and her Grade 7 and 8 students for their hard work, and for teaching all students about French language, music, and culture in such an exciting way!
