Painters, mechanics, and carpenters, oh my!

Isabella Dicken Elementary School (IDES) students spent Friday afternoon learning about the different trades and the career options they come with. IDES' Career Day 2014 was all about trades and students got the chance to hear from five different people working in five different industries.

Speaking to the students were: Jenny Mitchell, White Ladder Painting; Ian Larsen, Larsen Whalen Enterprises; Steve Wall, mechanic, Fernie Alpine Resort; Cara Pasque, recruiter, Teck Coal; and John MacGregor, Heli-Cool.
