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.
