Heritage Fair at Ecole Willows

Research involved accessing primary research sources from Oak Bay Archives

A grade 4/5 class from Ecole Willows presented their Heritage Fair projects Thursday in the Willows Library. Community members, local business owners, representatives from the school district, and the mayor of Oak Bay stopped by to ask questions and to choose seven projects that will move on to the city-wide Heritage Fair in May.

“The kids were asked to find something of heritage value to them. Something they were connected to historically or something they are really passionate about,” said Willows teacher Melissa Zuyderduyn.

The students went through a research process, looking at primary research sources at the Oak Bay Archives and at the Royal BC Museum Archives. They also looked at online and text resources to build a variety of projects.

Seven projects will to go on to the city-wide fair and if they get selected there they move on to the BCs.

“It is a really rich learning experience going through a whole research process like this. It’s not something you can just look up online. Going to the Archives and seeing the original photographs was really exciting for them and for me as a teacher,” said Zuyderduyn.
