The 5th annual Flin Flon School Division Heritage Fair is taking place tomorrow at McIsaac School. One of the organizers Susanne Westhaver says students from Ruth Betts and McIsaac Schools develop projects on something that interests them about Manitoba history. She says they have 115 students with 85 projects and the Fair runs throughout the day. She explains the students get to present their projects in one of four sessions and they’ll spend the remainder of the day doing mini-courses so they get to choose three other courses to do throughout the day.
Westhaver adds public viewing will be from 4 to 5:15 and the awards will be presented at 5:15.
The top 12 to 14 local projects go on to the Red River Heritage Fair held in Winnipeg on May 3rd.
