Students' voice

Pen High student Emily Oakes addresses Penticton city council at its meeting, held in the school’s library.

Taking city council’s show on the road to Pen-Hi cost in the range of $3,000.

City corporate officer Angie Collison said the tab covered everything from audio-video technicians hired to film and live-stream the May 7 meeting to staff time for setup and take-down.

The meeting was staged in the school’s library and featured two presentations from students. It was well-attended, but the crowd of students cleared our promptly at 3 p.m. when the final bell rang.

Mayor John Vassilaki said ahead of time it was important to engage youth in the democratic process.
