Bonhomme, Bonhomme sais-tu jouer?

A few weeks ago was Carnaval at our school. Though we are in B.C. and francophone celebrations are generally quite minimal, our proud to be French Immersion school celebrates the Quebec Carnaval with full force every year!

Complete with the arrival of Bonhomme by firetruck

All the way from Quebec, he's a celebrity for the day

A parade, crazy hats, and dancing in the streets

The passing of the "key to the school" to Bonhomme for the week long celebrations

Quebec and winter themed activities all week - Building sugar cube castles with our primary buddy class

Les chateaux en glace

We even have dances at lunch hour where the kids come to do La Bastringue, the bunny hop, and many more

At the closing ceremonies, the grade 7's dance La Bastringue around Bonhomme, le bucheron, le roi et la reine du Carnaval

Complete with masks, and les ceintures flechees

Bonnehomme and Le Bucheron get in the swing of things!

All photos taken with our new Nikon FE, and Ilford Delta 3200 black & white film. Developed and scanned to disc at The PhotoLab in Vancouver, B.C.
