Publishing Project Book Launch
The 2017/18 Grade 7B students from Calvin Christian School are proud to be publishing their very own book of short stories and artwork; for most students, their first publication ever! Each student chose a topic within Canadian history to research, asking themselves why their topic is seen to be historically significant. Why was it important? How did it change or affect people’s lives? How was Canada’s history shaped or changed because of this event?
