Blackville School recently held a farewell assembly for German exchange student Carla Ahad.

Students and staff from high school gathered in the gym to say goodbye to Carla and wish her a safe journey home.

Mr. Buggie presented Carla with a Canadian flag, signed by all her friends, as well as an honorary letter for the soccer team, which Carla had been a member of in the fall.

Carla, who had been an Eagle since first semester, was a very spirited member of the school.
