The gym was filled with bright and colourful displays showing off the students’ hard work. Pauline Therian, a retired teacher as well as Glenn Thibeault were brought in to help judge the projects to determine which would be moving on to the regional competition. Todd Horn, the Grade 6/7 was pleased with the outcome of his students’ projects. “These projects allow students to deepen their research skills and utilize technology to find out their information.” said Horn. “With respect to Heritage Fair, it is important for them to find out all about different aspects of the past and link it to the future.”. Megan Murphy, Vice Principal of the school was also one of the judges on hand to evaluate the different projects. “The students are quite proud of their work today.” said Murphy. “It is wonderful to see their pride in their work and their community on display.”.
