Congratulations to all Provincial & Regional Heritage Fair Participants!

On May 6, over 190 Grade 4 to 9 students presented 161 projects – 34 en français – at the annual Chignecto-Central Regional Heritage Fair at the Truro Campus of the Nova Scotia Community College. Our Grade 4-9 students, representing 10 schools, wowed the volunteer judges with their ingenuity, research, presentation skills and enthusiasm.  Click here to read the full list of Regional Winners!
