Though a number of schools in SD 71 have participated in the PA Fair in previous years, Aspen Park is the only school from SD 71 that has registered to participate in the Port Alberni Heritage Fair this year.

There will be seven students attending.

Their presentations include:

“What was the spell of the Yukon?”

“Halifax Explosion”

“Newfoundland Tsunami”

“Canadian Candies”

“Endangered Animals in Canada”

“Vancouver Island Endangered Animals”

“Justin Trudeau”

Regional Heritage Fairs happen each Spring in various regions of B.C.  The Fair gives students an opportunity to explore and research interesting and even little known facts about Canadian history. At the PA Regional Fair, their projects will be viewed by a panel of judges. In addition, students will each be interviewed for personal knowledge; it’s a great experience for them and builds up their confidence that they can teach others interesting facts.

One hundred students from mid to north Island have registered for this event.

The PA Fair will be open to the public on Sat. May 7 from 11-3 p.m. A recognition and awards ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. where   five students and one teacher chosen to attend the Provincial Heritage Fair, all expenses paid, in Prince Rupert this summer.
