As part of our winter Carnival, we had a Literacy Day where the staff and students were invited to come to school in pajamas to participate in a day devoted to Literacy. We invited several members of the local surrounding communities to come in and share their love of reading with our students.
The Five Day Winter Carnival for Harcourt School for 2016, consisted of several very fun-filled days of activity. We started our carnival by visiting Walsh Sleigh Rides which is situated in Galloway. Mr. Ronnie Walsh provided our students, staff and parents with thrilling rides through the beautiful trails in Galloway. We were introduced to his two very gentil Clysdale Horses who effortlessly pulled us through the snow.
Mr. K. Scully invited Mr. Kevin Watson Manager for Parks and Recreation for the City of Saint John, Executive Director for Boxing NB and former Canadian Boxing Champion and International competitor, to introduce the Fit Box pilot project to Harcourt school children.
