Langley Fine Arts School has used technology to teach local history about the First World War.
Teacher Emilie Colbourne’s Grade 5 class made Honouring Our Own, a movie about Langley’s Dr. B.B. Marr and his contribution honouring fallen soldiers. It was only finished right before Remembrance Day 2014. There wasn’t an opportunity to show the public, until now.
“His legacy is still evident today in Fort Langley, but not many people know his story,” she said.
Colbourne will also take this year’s students to learn more on local history around the village.
“I will take my new class to the cenotaph in Fort Langley this Friday so that they too can learn the stories and history of their community,” she added.
