The project deals with the hardships the boys' grandparents endured during the Great Depression,( one of them being how to stave off hunger). Grandma's Dumplings was a favourite meal at my grandma's house, made from chicken and vegetables it could feed a large family for three or four meals," Nicholas told Trustee Vincent.

March 7, 2006 - Grade 5 and 6 students at St. James Catholic School in Lively were given the opportunity to display their Historica Fair projects to judges, teachers, family, friends and fellow students at presentation held at the school recently.

Elementary students throughout the Sudbury Catholic District School Board look forward to participating in this unique fair each year as it not only strengthens their knowledge re the diversity and uniqueness of Canadian heritage but also affords them the opportunity to develop strong roots in their community and culture.

Students also develop research and communication skills through interaction with different community sources such as politicians, local historians, multi cultural organizations and representatives from the business community.

Ray Vincent, Trustee for the SCDSB, and Rossella Bagnato, Academic Superintendent of Education, SCDSB were among the 11 guests who judged more than 85 student projects at the school wide Historica Fair.
