Heritage Fairs – School Fairs Grant
This program is part of a national education project developed to increase awareness and interest in Canadian history. In New Brunswick, the program is an initiative of the Heritage Branch.
Heritage Fairs are an opportunity to include your entire school in an educational, dynamic and exciting event! By participating in the program, teachers from all departments (social studies, history, language arts, core language and immersion, science and technology, math, sports and recreation, multi-media, art, music, enrichment, etc.) encourage their students to learn more about their community while developing and expressing their creative talents. By putting together an interdisciplinary program in your school, your students will be proud to participate in your school's own unique Heritage Fair.
Small grants are provided to schools, through Heritage Branch in this department, to cover related costs such as educational supplies, student prizes, and travel to Regional Heritage Fair sites.
