The Shelburne Regional High School gymnasium was filled with World War I history on April 4 when the Junior High students shared their Heritage Fair projects with the public at an open house.
A total of 125 projects were on display, with many projects focused on family connections to the war. Students also chose from a list of local veterans to feature, said Michelle Grant, SRHS French and Social Studies teacher. Particular battles and different aspects of wartime were also explored by the students.
Four students from each junior high grade were selected to go on to the regional heritage fair in Yarmouth next month. From there, the top projects advance to Halifax for provincial competition.
Advancing to the regional heritage fair from SRHS are Grade 7 students, Nathan Brewer, Bryan Jensen, Max Foss and Dawson Perry; Grade 8 students Hannah Buchanan, Anthony Ceschiutti, Aidan Bell and Kale Sperry; and Grade 9 students Clara Jurgenliemk, Sadie Oikle, Ryan Burton and Andrew Chetwynd.
