Another highlight of the Okanagan is the wonderful schools we have here. The public school system is very well looked after and ran by very good people and parents. The schools I have chosen to enrol my kids in are called George Pringle Elementary and Le Petit Hibou Preschool. They are great schools and are also French Immersion schools, you can choose to go with french or english. Either way they are awesome.
To raise money George Pringle hosts an annual carnival and it is really cool! Each year it gets better. They have stuff for kids of all ages, sadly I couldn't coax my kids into getting there faces painted but that's OK. We still had a blast. This carnival is open to the entire community anyone and everyone is invited so it is something you can mark on the calendar every year! No exclusions.
It is all around the school, inside and out they have so many things to do, like a rock climbing wall, face painting, tattoos, different carnival games throughout, photo shoot, silent auction, cake walk, 4 different kinds of bouncy houses, and then the concession they have hot dogs, burgers, pizza, popcorn, cotton candy, and so much more. It is ridiculous how much you can do there. And it is very reasonably priced. We spent 20.00 all together and got to enjoy way more than you could ever get at a regular fair.
Here is the George Pringle Mascots, showing off some Pringle Pride!
Here my little ones are enjoying some dinner before running to our next fun filled event.
They have a game called the chicken chuck where they toss chickens through the hole and ring a bell, everyones a winner and the kids love it!
They have cupcake decorating tables also which is always a crowd pleaser. I could have eaten twenty of those little cupcakes they were delicious!
Here they are at the photo shoot being total hams!
This whole carnival would not be possible if it wasn't for our amazing volunteers! Teachers and parents and everyone in between we thank you because this event is one I will be going to for years to come, I have gone to it 3 years in a row now and it never disappoints.
