Heritage Fair in Creston

On March 7th and 8th – the Creston Wildflower students participated in a school BC Heritage fair. Over the course of several months, as part of the homeschooling component of their program, the students research a topic in Canadian history and become experts in their field. A key objective of the project is to encourage students to become curious about Canadian history and to deepen their understanding of the present by engaging with and questioning the past. Topics this year include an exploration of: the draft dodgers, Canadian aircraft, Canadian pirates, local trapping lines etc… Each year Wildflower Creston has some students who qualify for the regional fair and in some years some students make their way to representing School District 8 at the provincials.
