Winnipeg Free Press: Teacher to develop Holocaust curriculum

July 3, 2024 — 

A Westwood Collegiate history teacher has been selected by the Manitoba government to help develop a new Holocaust curriculum for the province’s students.

Kelly Hiebert, 39, has been seconded for two years to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Learning to create a new unit for Manitoba’s Grade 11 students. He’s also been asked to assess current Holocaust lessons from kindergarten to Grade 10 and make recommendations to update the curriculum.

“It’s a huge honour and privilege to have been asked to do this,” said Hiebert, who has been a teacher for 17 years.
