Children were bursting with excitement at the St. Jerome’s School Carnival on March 1.
Approximately 300 people attended the ‘Travel’ themed carnival, with each booth decorated to showcase a different destination. The evening included a 50/50 draw, a silent auction, several games, and a large assortment of refreshments. Proceeds from the goodies in the Tea Room went towards helping the Grade 6 class take a field trip to Drumheller.
According to teacher, Allan MacMillan, the Grade 10 Leadership Class’ objective was to push perhaps beyond their comfortable boundaries, learning service skills by approaching businesses and planning a pretty big event to create inexpensive fun for the community.
Genevieve Laurence enjoyed getting her face painted at St. Jerome’s Carnival.
MacMillan remembered coming to the carnival as early as the 1970’s and said, “This year we were very fortunate to once again have great support from businesses and individuals in the community. It was a great night.”
“It turned out amazing; lots of people came out, contributed, and helped us celebrate,” said student, Myranda Lawrence.
