St. Anne Winter Carnival Spells Last Hurrah For Winter

Shyanne Lee, a Gr. 1 student at St. Anne School in Hanmer, sits on a winter sled as she prepares for her turn in the "luge", an event in the school's winter carnival that took place before the March Break.

March 29, 2012 - St. Anne School staff and students celebrate the end of winter with their annual winter carnival. This year however, the entire school body wondered if there would even be a carnival. Sudbury Catholic Board teacher and annual carnival planner, Nannette Shonwise stated, "We will be moving up the festivities by a week to make sure there will be enough snow." However, a sudden mild spell had even those best laid plans up in the air right down to the last minute. Would the carnival be able to take place outdoors or not? Fortunately, Mother Nature was on their side. The students from J.K. to Grade 6 were able to participate in all types of winter events like hockey, curling, the luge and of course, a hot chocolate station. No team comes out as the grand winner for the day. The purpose of the carnival is to allow the children to just have fun without the added pressure of competing to come in first. The events help promote such virtues as responsibility and patience, as well as promoting teamwork between the youngest to the oldest students. The day was a huge success thanks to the efforts of teachers, parent volunteers and of course, the team spirit of the student body. Winter may be on its way out, but you can be sure the memories of this year's winter carnival will be around for quite some time! Way to go Angels!
