Specialist High Skills Major students at Ernestown Secondary School have been preparing wooden pens and boxes for retiring staff of the Limestone District School Board.

Last fall, with an LLF grant, Ernestown students mentored elementary students in the fabrication of these pens as an extension of their program. Now, the District Technological Education Program housed at Amherstivew Public School, is continuing to craft these pens for both school board and foundation purposes. This is a great partnership for both secondary and elementary students to collaborate, mentor, lead and learn.
