Carbon School celebrates Canada’s 150th year
Carbon School faculty and students marked Canada’s 150th Birthday with patriotic cupcakes and red and white clothing on May 30.
The day symbolized the 150th day of the 150th year since Canada’s confederation back in 1867.
The grade eight foods class prepared and decorated the 150 cupcakes to recognize the event. Afterwards, the cupcakes were shared with the entire Carbon School population.
Throughout the day, students were encouraged to wear red and white to show their pride as well.
The members of the Big Valley 4-H Beef Club had their Show and Sale on May 22 and 23. It was a busy two days and the members all worked very hard to have their heifers and steers ready for the show.

Congratulations to Hannah Elines who won Champion Herd and Trinity Martin, Champion Heifer and 2 Year Old.
