Some of the displays from the 2016 Heritage Fair:
The North Okanagan Optimist Club is excited to be hosting the 2016 Vernon Hertage Fair at the Schubert Centre April 7th & 8th, 2016!
This fair is all about the celebration of Canadian History! It encourages students to explore Canadian heritage in a dynamic, hands-on learning environment. Students use a medium of their choice to share stories about Canadian heroes, legends, milestones, and achieveements and present the results of their research at a class/school fair.
The value to students who participte, is it will enhance their “Literacy Skills” with an emphasis on communication skills; it will support “Cross Curricular IRP” requirements; and it will encourage “Active Citizenship” by celebrating the roots and achievements of Canadian people.
At the fair itself, these students participate in a fun-filled day of judging a variety of heritage activities, and showcase their work for their family, friends and the community. They also receive a free t-shirt, free lunch and snacks. Participating students also have the opportunity to win door prizes and even a chance to be selected to attend the Okanagan Regional Fair and possibly the chance to attend the Provincial Heritage Fair.
We invite the North Okanagan community to come down and support their local students who have participated in this fun and educational event.
