Students explore and discover heritage
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.
