There was no shortage of snow this year as students at Ripley-Huron Community School braved the brutal cold weather and strong north wind, to participate in the annual winter carnival Wednesday, at the school.

The youngsters took part in a variety of active, outdoor games under the leadership of the Grades 7 and 8 students.

Everyone was reminded to say "Bonjour" to Bonhomme Carnaval, and most importantly, to remember that the carnival is about fun and good sportsmanship.

Appreciation to French teacher Linda Battler for organizing and hosting "Carnaval d'hiver."
