Provincial Historica Heritage Fair Will Celebrate Student Achievements

Community and Cultural Affairs

Premier Pat Binns and Community and Cultural Affairs Minister Elmer MacFadyen are inviting Islanders to attend the Provincial Historica Heritage Fair this Thursday at the Confederation Centre of the Arts. Students will be displaying their projects for public viewing and the list of finalists for the National Historica Fair will be announced.

“I would like to extend an invitation for Islanders to join students, teachers and mentors at the Provincial Historica Heritage Fair to view the student’s projects, and for the official ceremony at 3:00,” said Premier Binns. “The students have put a lot of hard work into their projects and are looking forward to showing their work to members of the public.”

Throughout the winter months, students in Prince Edward Island have been researching and developing heritage based projects. Through the emphasis on project development and presentation including researching, interviewing, writing, editing, and speaking, the students have enhanced their literacy skills and developed strong roots in the history of our country, province, their communities and their families.

“I commend the students for the work they put into developing, preparing and presenting these projects. I encourage Islanders to visit the displays on Thursday and learn from Island students just how rich our province is in both history and culture,” added Minister MacFadyen.

The Historica Foundation, sponsor of the Heritage Fair program, is a charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians discover the fascinating stories that make our country unique. Through education programs and authoritative resources the Foundation connects Canadians to our many histories. Discover your place in history at
