Last night the Flin Flon School Board received the Red River Heritage Fair presentation from McIsaac School teacher Jason McKay and grade seven students Grayden Bedford and Sarah Faktor. McKay said the Heritage Fair allowed students to explore their own ideas regarding Canadian heritage using books and the internet to dig deep and research something they wanted to learn about. Seven projects were chosen this year from the Divisional Heritage Fair and ten students were invited to participate in the Fair at the University of Winnipeg. As in years past our students represented our Division with excellence and two projects received awards, one in two categories and one chosen to compete in a national contest that could lead to a trip to Ottawa next fall. McKay says he hopes the interest in these events will continue to grow.
Superintendent Blaine Veitch reported the Division has been approved for a grant of up to 30 thousand dollars for the Minister of Housing and Community Development towards the Queens Park redevelopment project. The funds will go towards courts, fencing and landscaping.
