On Wednesday, May 15, all the students of the Grade four French Immersion classes from Isabella Dicken Elementary School came to City Hall to meet with the mayor and get a tour and learn about the history of City Hall.

Teacher Mme. Danielle Gibson and TA Mireille Picard accompanied the students who got to sit at the podium and bang the Mayor’s gavel, go into the vaults to check out the old maps, and meet City staff. They also got to look at all the old photos of past council members, wall of fame recipients and tour the Miners’ Walk exhibit. Each student received a City pin.

Mayor Mary Giuliano said the kids enjoyed learning about the work of Mayor and Council. “The kids were so enthused,” she said. “It was just great to provide some history on Fernie and show them around.”
