Stu­dents ex­plore and dis­cover her­itage

The Compass - - COMMUNITY SERVICES -

Grades 4, 5, and 6 stu­dents at Holy Redeemer went all out for the an­nual Her­itage Fair held at the school March 5.

The stu­dents were given an in­for­ma­tion pack­age in Jan­uary and asked to cre­ate an in­di­vid­ual project around the pro­vin­cial theme Ex­plor­ing and Dis­cov­er­ing.

Robert Bishop, Her­itage Fair co­or­di­na­tor said the “stu­dents’ projects far sur­passed even their teach­ers’ ex­pec­ta­tions. Each project, though on a uni­ver­sal theme, was very unique as it rep­re­sented each child’s in­di­vid­ual back­ground. Ev­ery stu­dent pro- vided a vis­ual and oral pre­sen­ta­tion for judg­ing,” he said.

Grade 4 stu­dent Macken­zie Crane, Me­lanie Vokey, Grade 5 and Matthew Mercer, Grade 6 were se­lected to rep­re­sent Holy Redeemer at the Re­gional Her­itage Fair to be held at Bay Arena, Bay Roberts May 2 and 3.

Teach­ers rec­og­nized all fam­ily mem­bers “who sup­ported their chil­dren’s ef­forts and helped them rise to the oc­ca­sion.”

Ed Neil, vice chair­man of the Spa­niard’s Bay-Til­ton Her­itage Com­mit­tee and ad­ju­di­ca­tors Paul Gosse, Jen­nie Shep­pard and Mary Sul­li­van spent the morn­ing help­ing out, while par­ent vol­un­teers Shel­ley Healey and Jodi Hutch­ings helped pre­pare a New­found­land lunch for the fair.
