Northwest heritage celebrated by students

Students from ‘Na Aksa Gila Kyew Learning Centre, Skeena Middle School, and Caledonia Senior Secondary participated in fair

Students from ‘Na Aksa Gila Kyew Learning Centre, Skeena Middle School, and Caledonia Senior Secondary participated in the Northwest Regional Heritage Fair held at Kitsumkalum Hall on Friday, May 3.

Students were free to research any topic of their choosing, but they all needed to visually demonstrate a research plan, objective, and conclusion. This year, 90 projects were on display lining the inside of Kitsumkalum Hall.

Michael Munday, 12, a Grade 7 french immersion student at Skeena Middle School researched the Terrace Mutiny for his project and said he picked this topic because his great grandfather was here when it happened and he wanted to do a project about his hometown.

Munday’s project was primarily in French, with the exception of a first-person journal he wrote documenting the daily events of a soldier.

“I want to be an author,” Munday said when asked what he wants to be when he grows up. Specifically, Munday is interested in fiction, adventure and medieval stories. “Take Lord of the Rings for example, that’s me,” he said.

Students from the Northwest Region are eligible for 14 regional and provincial awards. Additionally, five students will be selected to participate in the Provincial Heritage Fair to be held from July 4-8 in Victoria, B.C.

Participating in the curriculum-driven fair fulfills part of the social sciences and language arts requirements set forth by the Ministry of Education.

Also in attendance of the event were Royal Canadian Mounted Police veterans Gerry Brown, Marjan Kriegl and Rick Meijer. This year marks 100 years of policing and Terrace and was this year’s theme at the fair.

On display were collections of police related articles, photos and artifacts. BC Provincial Police uniforms were on loan from the Prince Rupert Fire Museum for the fair.
