|Virgil School student Kaityn Wiens|
has fun catching a snowball
during a winter activity
last Friday morning.
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.
