Marysville community project

Students learn about the fire department, city hall and more with onsite visits

Marysville students learn about the Kimberley Fire Department.

Grade 3 students from Marysville Elementary participated in its 3rd annual Our Community Project. The objective of the project is to break the grade 3’s down into small groups so they can interact with different community locations. Some of the locations the students visited this year where The Fire Hall, City Hall, RCMP, Post Office, Ambulance Station. Students would ask questions and gather information to create their power point presentation, then present to their classmates. Mr. James Weir and the grade 3’s of Marysville would like to thank the community locations for their support. Also a thank you to City Bakery and Our Place for allowing us to have our snack there. Over the years Mr. James Community Link SD6 has partnered with many community business to provide excellent programs and projects. If you or your business feel you can provide a unique experience for the students of Kimberley, contact Mr.James at james.weir@sd6.bc.ca or 250.427.2283 SD6.
