Festival du Voyageur Week

photoIMG_0587 IMG_0586 IMG_0584 IMG_0583To celebrate Festival du Voyageur we have been running activities throughout the week.  Tuesday we started with 100 day. Students were encouraged to dress as if they were 100 years old to celebrate the day.  Wednesday students wore their ceinture flechee and had a pancake breakfast to start off the day.  On Thursday students wore their tuque rouge and participated in a variety of voyageur and Inuit games and activities including: La Bastringue, One Foot High Kick, Leg Wrestling, Arm Wrestling, Canoe Portage Races and others.  On Friday students are encouraged to dress up in a full voyageur costume to finish off the week.  We will be running our annual canoe races in the gym during the last two periods of the day.  We will see which class can get their teacher around the gym the quickest!
