Local school principal turns school gym into fencing hall

Harmony Public School Principal Robert McFadden’s foil bends as he demonstrates a thrust to the upper chest, on Wednesday, November, 16, 2011.  McFadden turns his school’s gymnasium into a salle, or fencing hall, on Wednesday nights with classes for children, adolescents, and adults.  Three years ago, McFadden came back to fencing after a 20 year hiatus from his days of competeing while attending Queen’s University; he currently trains with the Kingstoin Community Fencing Club.  Photo by Cole Breiland.
