Gus Wetter School, in the town of Castor, serves students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in a beautiful rural Alberta locale encompassing a large geographic region.
In 2017-18, our students will be working with professional artist from Trickster Theatre on our show Farming Practices Over 150 Years.
We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!
Full Project Summary
Gus Wetter School wants our students to know that our community has played a role in that of being Canadian and we want to include community elders, business people, service people and town officials to play a key role with our students in understanding not only how our community has changed and flourished over the years but also how it has remained the same.
We want to explore our roots as farmers and ranchers in this area and how our farming practises have evolved and yet the moral fabric that existed then, of creating community, exists today, amongst the new agrarians. This could evolve to what education and schooling was like 150 years ago, investigating the area and seeing where all of the old schools still stand, possibly extending the query into teaching practises and what students learned and how that has changed over the years.
Project OutcomeTo explore and investigate our roots as farmers and ranchers in this area and how our farming practises have evolved, to investigate the area and see where all of the old schools still stand, and to discover the changing nature of farming and how the Wheat Pool was such a prevalent force in our area.

How to create projects
Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project.
New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.
