On June 7th, the grade 11 and 12 French classes hosted Winkler Elementary School’s grade 8 French students at GVC to experience the history and culture of Mardi Gras. Students at GVC ran stations where they taught the grade 8 students about the history of masks, King Cakes, costumes, traditions and the music of Mardi Gras as well as the meaning behind this celebratory day. Everyone had the opportunity to speak in French and learn about a francophone culture hands on by making crafts, baking, singing, and playing instruments. Big thanks go out to Ms. McKinnon, Mrs. Russell, Mrs. Urichuk, and Mrs. Hodge for helping to make this day a success! Mrs. Hayley Friesen and Ms. Parr are thrilled with how hard the students worked to make this day a success! Bravo, tout le monde! Nous sommes fières!
