The “paint” party aspect of the event was facilitated by DHS Designs who provided a number of stencils for the signs. From there the students had free range of creativity with paint colours and designs. Photo by Kaylyn Whibbs

Kadyn Schmidtke, FCSS Mentoring Program Coordinator, said she chose this event because she “wanted to take it out of the box a little bit.” The mentors and mentees meet once a week and have a big appreciation event like this one twice a year.
