Immersing themselves in Carnaval

The Island Savings Centre resounded with gleeful comments Thursday as French Immersion students from around the Cowichan Valley gathered for their annual winter Carnaval.

Crafts, sports and ice skating were all part of the fun, which picks up its theme for the famous Carnaval de Quebec, and even included a visit from Bonhomme, the Carnaval mascot, wearing his traditional red hat and sash.
