Eight award-winning kids were invited to a special breakfast on Wednesday, Dec. 20 at Carbon School.

The school's first ever Breakfast of Champions was thought up as a way for the school to award students who demonstrated the school's key values.

"We have decided on five core values here at our school and we work very hard to teach our kids about them and demonstrate them to them," explained Marci Steen, the Associate Principal of Carbon School. "Those values happen to be: integrity, co-operation, personal excellence, perseverance and empathy."

Parents were also invited to the breakfast to celebrate with their kids.

"We had eight students at Carbon School that we chose for our first-ever Breakfast of Champions," said Steen. "So, we hosted breakfast with them and their parents. We shared why we chose them and we had little certificates and a Carbon School water bottle that we shared with each of the recipients."

So how did Steen and her colleagues chose the lucky eight?

"What we do as staff members is we keep a keen eye out and we try and catch kids doing those and showing those values. One of the girls, Evie Gordon, who is in the fifth grade, was getting her needle from the public health nurse (and she was frightened), but she stuck to it. And then, another classmate came up and she was very frightened and she offered to stay with her."

Two other award-winners had made centre pieces to sell at a fundraiser for the Carbon Store.
