The students at Gosfield North Public School were pleased to tuck away text books and pencils last Friday as they celebrated the French language and culture through its annual Bonhomme de Neige Carnaval event.

  The Gosfield North Public School French Department hosts this annual event for the entire student body. The day is filled will fun activities and chances to learn more about French culture, while celebrating the season of winter.

  This festivity is hosted in a way that simulates Quebec’s popular Winter Carnival.

  Throughout the day, the students, placed in groups, traveled from station-to-station, which were setup in various areas of the school. The students enjoyed playing floor hockey, curling, a make-shift power-skating event, and also enjoyed sweet treats in the café. While the students have fun participating in these activities, they are connecting what they have learned in their French classes with French culture.
