On October 16 and 17th, the Social Studies Department hosted a collection of authentic and replica WWI artifacts to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of WW1. The collection was on loan from the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. The artifacts were on display in the Senior Library and all classes were invited to view the exhibit. Social Studies 11 students had been working with the artifacts and acted as “museum docents”. Below are photos of Grade 6Y viewing the exhibit.
The artifacts on display included a small arms ammunition brass cartridge case, shrapnel bullets, gas alarm rattle, Mark I helmet, war posters, war art, official war photographs, nursing sister’s apron, service dress jacket and cap, and more. View the photo slideshow below.
