On April 27, students from Ms. Gormley’s and Mrs. Allan’s classes at Raft River Elementary School held their Heritage Fair in the gym.
The students had been working on their projects for many weeks and were pleased to present their learning to the judges, their peers, teachers and parents.
There were Grade 4 and 5 projects that were judged, and some Grade 3 students also did projects for display and practice.
Some of the students were chosen to represent Raft River at the District Heritage Fair on May 5 and 6.
Congratulations to the following students who have the chance to take their projects to Kamloops this week: Katrina Brcko, Saya Stelter, Bailey Murray, Jaden Phillips, Kiah Phillips, Soren Coates, Hailey Irvine, Sam Jensen, Lucas Taniguti, Jayne Cole, Lucas Taniguti, Harriet Broadbent, Sophia Braaten, Sarah Oud, Amery Hokai and Korie McGill.
Inset photo: Sam Jensen’s display was titled “History of Navenby.” The village of Vavenby was originally to be named after the village of Navenby in England but the naming authorities could not read the local postmaster’s handwriting.
Below: Katrina Brcko shows her display, which bears the title “Mackenzie’s Voyage, 1793” and is about explorer Alexander Mackenzie and his trip across what is now Canada.
