Donwood students attend Christkindlmarkt
Donwood students from Frau Koop, Herr Neumann, and Frau von Hacht had the opportunity to visit and perform at the oldest Christkindlmarkt in Canada on Friday, November 29th. Students gave it their best, singing popular German carols, reciting poetry about St. Nikolaus/Advent, and reading a script about the Christmas bunny. They were also able to visit and watch an Austrian woodcarver demonstrate the very old traditional skill of carving wood, see traditional advent pyramids and wooden angels handcrafted from Germany, and were delighted to purchase a few things for themselves and their families from the various vendors at the Fort Garry Place. It was a wonderful opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit. Frohe Weihnachten!
