Students at Isabella Dicken Elementary School in Fernie recently spent a morning with singer and songwriter Lowry Olafson, creating the words and music for a school song. The new song, titled "Running with the Power of the Panther Spirit" focused on the themes of belonging and respect and was performed for the entire school as students and staff sang along.
