UES Heritage fair

The 2014 UES Heritage Fair on April 11th was a huge success. Our intermediate students and staff have worked very hard for the last 7 weeks researching an aspect of Canadian history and/or culture. I would like to thank our community members who came out to judge at the fair and make this day special for the students.

District of Ucluelet: Mayor Irving and Counsellor Oliwa, NIC: Bill Morrision, Ucluelet Historical society: Marva Chandler, Jan Smith and Pieter Timmerans RCMP: Susan Argyle. Pam and Dave McIntosh, Gord Dunsmore, Norannda Sigmund. From Alberni Valley Museum Shelley Harding, Pat Dahlquist and Pam Craig, School District 70: Cam Pinkerton and Gurmail Aujla, NTC: Lynette Lucas. USS “Alumni” judges: Rachel Dziama, Megan Fortune, Kyle Grilli, Kendall Arsenault, Sierra Griffin, Adriana Todesco, Lucas Van Camp and Matthew Auld.
