Dave Alexander and Ryan McManaman, history teachers at OSCVI, received
the Governor General’s Award for excellence in Teaching History in
November 2014. These teachers introduced local history to their students
by assigning them to research and study individual former OSCVI
students who served and were killed during the First and Second World
Wars. From this research the students developed “soldier packs” of
digitized information on their assigned soldiers. This inspiring project
found the students taking responsibility for preserving the memory of
local soldiers who died at about their own age.
The teachers and some of
their students will be making a presentation on their special project
in the Theatre Arts Room of OSCVI.
This will be followed by a visit to
the Memorial hall and the Heritage room to observe the projects
