Westin Ferguson

Our war heritage

Westin Ferguson, a Grade Five student at Agassiz Christian Elementary, thumbs through his great grandfather’s belongings, which he used in a school project. The school celebrated Heritage Week in their gymnasium last Wednesday, and students created displays on subjects such as war, the Olympics, the provinces, nursing and farming. One of the things Westin learned through this project was that his great grandfather was paid $26 a month for his service as a Canadian soldier.
