Fleming College’s Student Life department is hosting the fourth annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Comes to Fleming event on Friday, Feb. 5.
Fifteen student leaders from the college will lead games and sessions for 24 ‘littles’ from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre on Brealey Drive.
Many of the children attending the event are currently on the ‘big’ waitlist and do not have a consistent mentor and friend through the organization. This event is organized to help the ‘littles’ feel engaged while they wait. It also provides Fleming students with an opportunity to be a ‘big’ for a day and to make a positive and lasting impression on this group of children.
Media are welcome at this event. The ‘littles’ will be playing organized games in the gym between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. with the best time to attend around 10:45 a.m.
Agenda for the event:
- 10 a.m. - Volunteers at PSWC to greet the 'littles' as they arrive
- 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. - Activities in the gym
- 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. - Lunch
- 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. - Public swim
- 1:30 to 2 p.m. - Wrap up
