Blakeburn Carnival Thanks You
The rain didn’t stop the fun at this year’s Carnival! The Country theme brought out ponies, a petting zoo, cowboy hats and country-themed cakes. Thank you so much for everyone who was involved in making it a success again this year, and to all the families who came out to support the event. Our annual carnival is a wonderful way to bring together our community, while also raising funds for the school.
A big thank you to our sponsor, Scotiabank, for sending their staff to volunteer to help sell tickets, and providing a generous donation to our school.
Thank you to the Carnival Committee who worked tirelessly to put together all the details: Darian Noel, Carrie Heuchert, Crystal Gunning, Rochelle Hepworth, Liesl Jurock, Cathy Olsen, Andrea Howorth and to Supervisors, Sabrina MacEachern, Heather So and Kristy Dastur.
As you know from all the emails and posters, the Carnival could not happen without the help of the parent community. THANK YOU to all of the families who came out and volunteered, who baked a cake for the Cake Walk, and who donated to the theme baskets. We also thank the many Terry Fox Secondary students volunteers who ran the games and helped wherever was needed.
Of course, the Carnival also has a big impact on the school. We are so grateful to Ms. Becker and all the staff for accommodating the Carnival, and to the teachers who gave up their classrooms when the Carnival had to be moved inside due to the rain!
Finally, a huge thank you to all of the companies that donated to the raffle:
