It’s less than a month until Halloween!  This Halloween we’ve decided to hold a student
pumpkin carving contest.  Students will be able to carve a pumpkin at  home and 
drop it off at the centre  to enter to win a pair of movie tickets!   There will also
 be second and third runner up  prizes.  Not only will you be entering the contest, but you’ll
 help to decorate our  centre with your pumpkin!  Pumpkins  should be in by October 24th
 which gives us a week  for student votes.  Late pumpkins will  still allowed  (but you may lose 
out on some votes).  Our winners will be announced  on our website.  
Here are some links  and resources on how carve pumpkins:
