Jessica Matthews, 14, shows off her poster on the Hudson's Bay Company at Inuksuk High School's heritage fair Jan. 17. “I showed how the Hudson’s Bay Company became a better and bigger company and how it helped form our nation,” Matthews said. Dozens of students made posters on a variety of subjects, and members of the public were encouraged to walk around the school’s gymnasium and learn a few things. “Something about the heritage fair — being open like this to the community — it provides greater meaning to the students,” said teacher Pat McDermott. “It’s not just a mark and a test, not just a mark and an exam. There’s real meaning behind their learning,” he said. (PHOTO BY DAVID MURPHY)
