Grade six McIsaac students Cassidy Alexander and Niki Keramydas presented their award winning Heritage Fair project to the Board of Trustees. The two girls had put a lot of time and effort into their research on Greek history in Manitoba. Everything from the first Greek immigrants to why religion and the church are very important to the Greek people, the importance of Easter, food, music, dance and Niki’s family roots here in northern Manitoba. The girls closed their presentation with treats of Easter bread and cooking for all in attendance.
There was a second presentation last night from music teacher Anna Harrison who wanted to show how the music program continues to work towards meeting the goals of the Division’s strategic plan basically showing how the Seven Teachings band concert not long ago came about. With the help of Margaret Head, Leslie Power and Erin Dadson the music program really makes a positive impact on the students.
