November 18 meeting at OSCVI - Note change of time

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 4:00 pm O.S.C.V.I. 

 Owen Sound 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 firsthand. 

 Coordinator: Wayne Bryant 519.538.2558 

Location: OSCVI , 1550 8th St. E. Owen Sound
