We invite you to participate in this year’s Durham Regional Heritage Fair! Join the students and schools that inquire into our Canadian heritage of discovery, geography, innovation and history. What is a heritage fair and why would our school want to participate?
A Heritage Fair inquiry allows students to inquire into a person, place, event, innovation or discovery that has a historical significance and contribution to Canadian Heritage. Students choose the topic they are interested in learning about. Students will plan, gather evidence, make notes, interpret, analyze and learn about the significance of their topic to Canadian heritage. Students will present their findings in a creative way at a school Heritage Fair. Each school then chooses 5 to 6 representatives to attend the Regional Fair adjudication on April 30th and the Fair on May 1st.
Heritage Fair inquiries are great interdisciplinary learning opportunities, so sign up and join the many schools that have fun celebrating our wonderful heritage.
Please complete the School Registration Form to indicate your interest in having your school participate in this year’s Fair.
