On Tuesday, April 4 Horizon's Curriculum Coach, Larry Mikulcik, worked with Grade 4-6 classes, giving a presentation on Vimy Ridge and Canada's involvement in the First World War. Mr. Mikulcik then I shared a number of his First World War artifacts with the whole school, giving students an opportunity to examine the items as a part of a museum/artifact activity. Both events were organized by Cyndee Lovequist, teacher at Bulyea School and secretary/treasurer of the Silton Legion.
