By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Winter Carnival at Alexander Galt Regional High School (AGRHS) is without a doubt the most awaited school event of the year. Students, staff, and alumni alike have a wide array of memories to share about the long-standing tradition. In honour of the school and the event’s 50th anniversary, AGRHS held one of its most impressive editions on Thursday, Feb. 14. Students were separated into four groups that would eventually compete against one another for the winning title: the Devils, the Armadillos, the Lizards, and the Gremlins. They enjoyed a full day of activities, including horse-drawn wagon rides, an art competition, a woodsman challenge, a cupcake decorating contest, a mechanical bull riding contest, weightlifting competitions, ping pong tournaments, tug of war, and the infamous game of dodgeball in the gym. See full story in the Friday, Feb. 15 edition of The Record.

Wow 50th edition. I was Ione of the first class at Alexander Galt and graduated in 1971. I did the vocational program and graduated as a,nursing assistant. Got a job at the Sherbrooke Hospital on the surgical floor for 7yrs. Wonderful experience and later in life became an RN. I am now retired at 66yrs. I wish all you students much success.
