Students at St. Paul Catholic Elementary School in Lakefield delivered thank you cards and posters to the Selwyn Township Fire Department today (Feb. 22, 2022), which responded to a shed fire on school property during the evening of Feb. 16, 2022.

Selwyn Township firefighters responded and prevented the fire from spreading to the school building. While the shed was destroyed, there was no damage to the school or portable classrooms and classes resumed as usual the following day.

Fire prevention officer Andrew Bowyer and firefighter Greg Frost picked up the cards in person at the school.

“On behalf of the students, staff members and families of St. Paul Catholic Elementary School, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Selwyn Township firefighters who worked hard to protect our school,” Principal Lisa Gemmiti-Folz said.
