More than 150 students in grades 4, 5 and 6 from East Three Elementary School displayed their Learning Fair projects in the school’s gym for peers, teachers, parents and judges to see. The Fair consisted of life, heritage and science projects, where students shared information on their family’s history, their favourite hockey players, slime creation and more. Thirteen students across the three grades were awarded prizes in the end, which included up to $30 in cash.
