Students chase turkey at school to celebrate Thanksgiving

École Our Lady of the Rosary School teachers, students and parents gathered together in the gymnasium to celebrate Thanksgiving late last week.

Each classroom presented their ‘Thanksgiving’ song to the rest of the school, before chasing the turkey around outside.

The turkey took each grade out individually and let the students chase her around, all while carrying a sign which read ‘Vegetarians Rock’.

“The students go outside and they chase our turkey,” said assistant principal Tracy Trieber. “We’re promoting school spirit.”

When the last grade was finished chasing the turkey, students names were drawn and three turkeys, three hams and 13 pies were given away, among various other prizes.

She said the feedback they get from the parents of the children who win a turkey or a ham is great and is the talk of the holiday at home.

Trieber said the students were excited for this celebration and had been preparing their songs and little costumes for the past week.

“They are thrilled to chase our lovely turkey who is Judith McIntyre, she has been the turkey for 20 years,” Trieber said.

She said the most fun thing about this celebration was seeing the smiles on the students faces as they chased the turkey.

It was also great to listen to the children and all that they gave thanks for as she added they have been learning about the importance of giving thanks to their families, community and to Jesus.

She said the students explained they were thankful for family, food, shelter, Jesus, friends, school, pets and various other things.

“In our school the teachers talk about the importance of family, Christ, friends as well as showing respect and kindness to one another,” Trieber said.
