The Langley Heritage Society encourages appreciation of heritage awareness in school children. We sponsor selected schools to attend programs at the Langley Centennial Museum and the society pay for bus transportation.
At Lochiel One Room School, a 1920’s typical day
We received these emails email from teachers who participated in the program:
“I would like to say a big thank you for supporting our class educational experience. Our class had a wonderful time at the Langley Centennial Museum thanks to your program support. All of the students enjoyed the educational experience. Thank you so much for all your efforts. They are appreciated and the field trip was a success. The students were filled with smiles and laughter and shared the experience with other staff and family members once we returned to the school. The students said “it was awesome”. A positive experience for everyone was enjoyed by your generous efforts and funding.”
“I’m a teacher at Parkside Centennial Elementary, in the Langley school district. You sponsored our class to partake in a program at the Langley Heritage Museum, that was about immigration and multiculturalism. The content fit right in with our Social Studies curriculum. My students benefitted from being on this field trip. I very much appreciate that your Society sponsors classes for field trips. There are some students whose families find it a struggle to pay for the “extras” of learning, such as field trips. As long as the Society is willing to do this generous deed for teachers and students, I will be taking advantage of this deed! Thanks again. Regards, Karen Rudyk”
Langley Heritage Society has also been pleased to support the Langley Centennial Museum, assisting with judging at Heritage Fairs held in Langley schools. Volunteers and financial support were provided in the district-wide Fair in Fort Langley held before selected students earned their way to the regional competition in Abbotsford. More information on B.C. Heritage Fairs can be found here.
Langley Heritage Society has been working with students at Brookswood Secondary School’s Backstreet Studios to create a series of videos that tell the stories of our restored buildings. Watch videos HERE.
