The Albert County Museum was bustling with
activity on Wednesday, May 10 as Anglophone East students came to spend the day
participating in the 2017 Regional Heritage Fair.
Students from five middle schools proudly displayed their creative
and innovative heritage projects of varied themes and project categories in the
Community Hall. Judges interviewed the students and assessed the projects based
on specific evaluation criteria for the special juried awards, as well as other
prizes. But, the day included much more than the judging!
Enrichment activities included each student “Painting a Mosaic
Tile”. This activity is part of a Canada 150 project which will result in a
large mosaic being created by a professional artist using the painted tiles
from all the Regional Heritage Fairs throughout the school districts in the
province. The finished provincial mosaic will then be displayed at Government
House in Fredericton.
