Cold carnival at Virgil school

The spirit of winter was in the air last Friday at Virgil Public School as the school hosted its first Carnaval d'hiver (Winter Carnival) in the playground.

Similar to the Carnaval de Quebec, a 17-day outdoor carnival held the last Friday of January, Virgil's carnival featured a slew of winter activities including simulated canoe races, ice slides, snow sculptures, races and a tug of war. Students and teachers enjoyed the nice break from classes to play in the snow and learn about Quebec culture.

After rotating each event, the students warmed up with hot chocolate and Tim Hortons Timbits.
