Thirteen McIsaac and Ruth Betts School students and their eight projects took part in the Red River Heritage Fair at the University of Winnipeg last week. The students were the top finishers in the local Heritage Fair held in February. One of the local organizers Susanne Westhaver says the students took four awards in Winnipeg. She says their big winners were Cassidy Alexander and Nikki Keramydas winning the Manitoba Historical Society Award, the Aboriginal Circle of Education Award and the Manitoba Museum Award and McIsaac School came away with the School Spirit Award.
One hundred and eighty students from across the province took part in the Red River Heritage Fair.
