The 5th annual Flin Flon School Division Heritage Fair is taking place Thursday 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 explains they have about100 students from both Ruth Betts Community School and McIsaac School with 66 projects that are registered so the kids get a day to celebrate Manitoba heritage noting they worked very hard on their projects. She says the day is split into four sessions in one of which they will be presenting a project to the judges and the other three they will be having the opportunity to do different mini courses in areas of interest to them.
Westhaver adds public viewing on Thursday will be from 4 to 5:15 and the awards will be presented at 5:15.
The top 10 to 14 local projects go on to the Red River Heritage Fair held in Winnipeg on May 2nd.
