Kent School was well represented by 11 student historians at the 2013 Regional Heritage Fair at Tradex, Abbotsford this week. Students and their families attended the public showing of the heritage projects this evening. Project topics ranged from sports, transportation, and Canadian landmarks to famous people, outstanding events, and local history. It was two days filled with judges, t-shirts, pizza in the rain, hockey with the Abbotsford Heat, and don't forget the 'Hotdog Buffet Lunch'. Congratulations to all our students who worked so hard, learned so much, and edited, edited, edited. A big thank you to our parent drivers Mrs. Stoeckly and Mr. & Mrs. Schram. Also, a big thank you to Mr. Mills and Mrs. Gallamore for supporting this project.
Congratulations to all our students.
