Fernie students remember

Students from Fernie Secondary and Isabella Dicken Elementary schools came together on Thursday for a Remembrance Day ceremony.

After an introduction from Fernie Secondary School Principal, Bill Johnson, secondary students Cera Atherton and Ryley Johnston took over as the Master’s of Ceremony. Grade four and five French Immersion students performed a reading of ‘In Flanders Fields’, followed by the reading of ‘Why Wear a Poppy’ by secondary students Kaylee Kormilo and Emily Scheller. Grade twelve student, Brodey Bolen, read a poem he had written entitled ‘The Hero’.

The ceremony also included an address from Salvation Army representative, Lieutenant Kyla McKenzie, as well as ‘Lest We Forget’, led by Frank Gentile. The Fernie Cadets were on hand to perform the March on the Colours.
