Mentors in the Community

Our students are celebrating Kashechewan by writing about positive mentors in the community.

Here are some of their picks:

I think Oliver Reuben is a positive mentor in the community.

Oliver is a brave man who is not afraid to speak for the community even in general meetings with the Chief and Council. He is hardworking in the community shows and often stays late to finish work that needs to be done. He is a kind man who loves his community and he is also a very patient man.

I believe Oliver makes a great mentor.

I think Mason is a great mentor in our school.

Mason is a smart person who helps people doing their work at FJWSS. He is a funny person, he always teases and jokes with people at our school. Mason is also very strong, he helps people at our school putting the chairs and tables up at every sports or grade 8 fundraiser to get community hours to go to college.

I think Mason makes a great mentor.

My grandmother is my mentor.

My grandma is a funny person who tells me many funny stories at her home. She is very clever in the way she speaks, and she never gets mad. My grandma is so curious about me – she invites me to her house every weekends and asks me all kinds of questions. My grandma is also helpful, she cooks for me and every time I go to her house, she makes me tea.

My grandma is a mentor and a great person in the community.

Haunted House a Big Success

On October 31st 2016, Kashechewan First Nation Ontario students had a haunted house for the community at FJWSS high school and it was a big success. The whole community had a lot of fun and got scared/screamed at the same time. Dallas Kooses said, “It was really fun and scary at the same time, and while I was in there I almost peed my pants because I forgot to use the washroom.” Mason Friday said, “I got scared when I went in there, I started crying when I heard scary people.” The grade 12 students decided to make a haunted house but they needed volunteers so the other grades started helping them and that is how the haunted house was a big success. A lot of people helped out on this project by setting up the walls and putting sound effects to it. Also people helped out each other by dressing up and painting their faces.
