After studying the war of 1812 with their teachers, grades 1, 2 and 3 illustrated it in a form of a poster for a contest organised by Canadian Heritage. Students had few rules to follow: No words, letters and phrases were permitted, the use of Canadian symbols was encouraged, all artwork had to be in colour. Students focused on their favourite "heroes": Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, Shawnee War Chief Tecumseh, Laura Secord and Lieutenant-Colonel Charles-Michel d'Irumberry de Salaberry.
The story of Laura Secord was one of the most popular.
