The meeting proposed that Blairmore. the ID No. 5. the district at large, have two representatives while the Frank district, the school division and the high school have one representative on the board. Members representing the villages and towns may be council members or appointed representatives. Once the new board is formed policies and regu- lations will be set. The organization will operate un- der the new constitution for the next two years. Correspondence from minister of culture, youth and recreation Horst A. Schmidt outlined the new fi- nancial assistance program to municipalities for the operation and maintenance costs of recreation ser- vices. The board has been advised it will be receiving a PEP grant of approximately S3.000 for wages to employ an arts and crafts teacher for 4h months. A program in this direcion is expected to start in mid- January.

Don Hartidg eyes films NATAL (HNS) Fernie school district could have the benefits of a film bank for education if a plan suggested by schools superintendent Don Harrwig is adopted. Mr. has asked Ihe school board for per- mission to consult with other district superintendents with a view to a film-sharing plan which would re- sult in a permanent bank of 150 or more motion pictures. The types of films he envisages cost about S150 each. The Vancouver firm supplying them provide films in color and payments can be spread over a five-year period. Mr. Hartwig said that while the Department of Education stocks about 600 films, it is extremely difficult lo procure them when needed. "You must apply two months in advance and program your teaching schedule in accordance.'1 he said. While somewhat concerned over the cost, trus- tees authorized Mr. Hartwig to investigate the mat- ter further and to talk with other superintendents. Project Canada unifies NATAL (HNS) More than 500 British Colum- bia public school classrooms have 'Twinned" with comparable classrooms in Ontario in a new pro- ject to make students in various parts of the coun- try more familiar with the history, geography, eco- nomics and culture of oiher parts of the country. Known as Project Canada because it is aimed at furthering national understanding, the program in- volves the pairins or "twinning" of elementary and secondary- classrooms with classrooms at the same levels in Ontario for the purpose of exchanging in- formation, personal correspondence, photographs, in- formation on class projects reflecting local condi- tions and in fact anything that the students and teachers consider interesting. In British Columbia the project is being co-or- dinated by John Walsh, superintendent of special ser- vices for the department of education. Mr. Walsh said that kindergarten and any other tvpe of special class ran be included :n the plan. At the post secondary level student committees rather than actual classrooms, can be paired.
