TLDSB schools participated in the Week of Kindness during November, and Fenelon Falls SS held a mini We Day for Students in the school’s gym on the afternoon of November 25, 2016.
Over 100 students attended the celebration. The event was student-run with senior FFSS students Jordyn and Julia as hosts. The assembly kicked off at 12:30 p.m. with Jordyn Greer singing Vance Joy’s Riptide and playing the guitar. Many speakers and performers took the stage throughout the afternoon such as Alexis Wilson, Raina McCue, Laura Metherel, and Nicole Beck. Musical performances took place as well as talks about following your dreams and standing up against discrimination. The event ran all afternoon and concluded at 2:30 p.m.
The purpose of the mini We Day was to inspire students to create change within their community and to recognize positive changes that have taken place close to home.
