St. Bernadette Catholic School Student, Fire Chief for a Day
Haley Marier, a Grade 4 student at St. Bernadette Catholic School won the “Fire Chief for the Day” contest by designing a fire escape home plan. The contest was open to 1,500 students throughout the Sudbury Region and to all four boards. Haley came first out of 500 entries.
On June 6, 2008 Haley was thrilled to be picked up at her house by one of the City of Greater Sudbury’s largest fire trucks and transported to the station where she spent time with Fire Chief, Mark Leduc and had the opportunity to tour the fire station. From the station Haley was whisked back to St. Bernadette Catholic School on a fire truck complete with sirens and lights. Haley received a huge welcome from the entire student body who stood on the grass outside the school with hand made signs stating “Way to Go Haley!”
